It was an okay experience...

Ryan979 on Aug 08, 2022

This is a nice place to visit but limit your expectations. The views are nice and the pools are clean, relaxing and beautiful. Traversing the resort by foot is great exercise and if you want to use the transfer service, rest assured the drivers are friendly, fast and always available. In terms of employee engagement - staff in the following areas were always friendly: lobby bar, reception, gift shop, restaurants, housekeeping. The hotel claims room service is available but no one answered the phone in room service for the entire 7 days I was there. The room was fairly standard and the repair leaves something to be desired, light in the bathroom not working properly and the room air conditioner made a hideous noise in the night that woke us up repeatedly. The beach has plenty of sea urchins - use caution. In terms of bringing cash - bring as small as denomination as possible. The front desk and gift shop were unable to break up even $20 U.S bills - frustrating. The food was ok - nothing to write home about, although the dinner in the "Grill Restaurant" was excellent for the one night we were able to go there for the a la carte experience.

Decent food, not breathtaking. Staff was mixed from super friendly to downright rude. We were left to figure out 90% of things on our own. The property itself was very well manicured. We were told kayaks were included, apparently paddles were not. We never found anyone to get them from. The room a/c worked sometimes. It took 36 hours to cool the room off after arrival, and I was miserable for that time. The on site tour company wanted 60 round trip for shopping in town, local Uber was 23 round trip. The on site store was extremely spendy. $6us for a monster. . . But at the end of the day, for the money, it wasn't bad.
