  • 8.0.Very good

    The hotel check-in staff were more interested in trying to sale time shares than anything else. There were times when no one answered the phone to have transportation to the lobby. The pool snack bar staff were the best staff on the place! Leo, Luis and Ruben were great!

    I loved the relaxing vibe and the views were gorgeous.The staff was very kind and the room was beautiful. Unfortunately we had no hot water the few days we stayed there. At breakfast when we ate there were a bunch of ants crawling all over One section of the food which ruins the appetite. Also the transportation at times would take up to 30 minutes and I realize that’s not the drivers faults and they’re busy but maybe adding a couple more busses in the future might help? Or more golf carts? We ended up switching hotels unfortunately but thank you to the staff who was so kind during our stay!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The resort is beautiful. Our room was gorgeous. The view was amazing. We saw lots of birds. The pools were amazing. The staff was amazing. Lots of staff to mention- Roberto, Gustavo, both of the Jesus’! The shuttle to the beach resort was timely and easy to catch! The things I wish they had- a schedule for sinners so that you can plan your meals. Not all restaurants were open every night. We ate Italian 2x because that’s all they had. I also wish they had a lobby bar- would be nice to have a drink while waiting for a shuttle or a cab. I’d also like to see a gift shop- for some snacks or Tanning supplies, or Tylenol. Overall, I think this resort is beautiful with beautiful pools, friendly staff, and amazing views.
