Terrible Experience, so disappointing

vacaDR1 on Jul 26, 2021

This was my third time staying at this resort in the last 5 years, this last stay was disappointing to say the least. My family of 17 booked 9 rooms for a 7 day stay, I recommended this resort due to great prior experiences, but this stay was not like past vacations. Several members of the family got sick from the sub par buffet food, others had issues with their rooms which were never resolved. I personally stayed in a Junior Suite which had a toilet that ran constantly, a sink that leaked all over the floor and air conditioning that didn't cool. I complained on three separate occasions, each time I was told someone would be there to take care of the issues, they were never resolved. At the buffet - I received coffee cups with lipstick stains on 3 occasions, disgusting and concerning to say the least. Service was horrible, had to share napkins and silverware with others at the table because service was nonexistent. I can go on and on about the buffet, but I will spare you all the details. Room service was so inconsistent - some days no towels, others no mini bar replenishment, not even water!! Swim up bar was closed due to COVID yet no social distancing was enforced, so I'm not sure why they would close this part of the pool. I found used plastic cups , pieces of sharp tile and other debris at the bottom of the pool daily. What happened to this resort? I understand the loss of revenue due to COVID, and the need for cutbacks, but WOW! To say I was disappointed in this stay would be an understatement, I will not be back!

Some employees could be more friendly

julianvD5122DY on Jul 26, 2021

When you go on vacation you expect to have the best experience from start to end, dont get me wrong the hotel was beautiful and the food was delicious, but some employees did not have the right attitude or energy that you would expect or hope to see. One small gesture can make or break your day.
