    The staff are absolutely wonderful. Always a smile and helpful. Outstanding service. This is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed at. Comfortable bed, room layout and all balcony's have views. If you are looking for rowdy all night partys, this is not your place. The entertainmnet was great (free). Beach is easily accesible and safe. I like that it is a smaller place, very accesible. It is great for families, couples and seniors. The drinks were abundant and stiff. The food was great. All around, this is the best resort I have stayed at. I will return. **I appreciated the smoking areas, we had 4 smokers in our group and they were annoyed that they had to go to designated smoking areas only. I like that. I don't want to be smelling gross cigarettes on vacation.

    The best thing is the staff. Got in the first night and had a problem with our room. Went to the desk and tried to resolve it. A very big no go. Asked to talk to a Manager and the desk staff said talk to Karyna Agaton. Talked to Miss Agaton for less than five minutes and she resolved our room problem in four minutes. If a resort has a manager like Miss Agaton I can only see how you would get repeat customers. Then again Nidia Sarrahi, how can you not have the best experience, coffee, gin and tonic or corona ... but getting to know Nidia. She made me feel welcome to Mexico. Then again Luis Alberto Cortes! Make us laugh, cry, and feel like we are okay being lazy! Thanks Luis. The hotel is very clean, the lady at the pool snack bar I'm sorry not to have gotten her name is the Jewel, good food happy! And give her bid ass tips! She works and works. The room service lady was so nice ,no English but teaching us Spanish every day. The buffet was pretty good with a great selection and the staff again worked so hard!! The A la Carte restaurants had much to be desired. No great shakes. The tower bar was a waste of space for such a commanding view. Too loud and crazy vid screens on the ceiling. ??? Never found the sushi bar. tried twice to go there and could not stand the noise so immediately turned and went back down the elevator. Great location and would suggest to have the space a quiet lounge area from 6 - 9 PM for the older population and let the disco fever fly after that. For those of you who want to swim, the only options are the pools. Ocean is crazy and beautiful waves but not good for swimming. Good wading not good for beach coming no stuff to find. 3 weeks of paradise. Best spot was under the palaces on the sand . Premier Lounge is worth the extra $ as it is quiet and has great service.. Thanks again to Karyna, Nidia and Luis. They made our trip!!!

    All inclusive resort was beautiful, well maintained and the food was very good. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was that my travel agent booked us a king sized bed but upon arrival, we were told that reservations are “subject to availability” so I don’t understand the purpose of making a reservation ...my husband and I had to get double beds.... Also we had to call every single night there to ask for wash clothes as the maid kept forgetting to leave them in our room. Other than those two minor issues...it was great!

    Upscale resort

    Spent a week at this resort and thoroughly enjoyed it. Right on a beautiful beach with great view of the ocean. Waiters serving drinks all day. Never got noisy or out of hand. Walking distance to San Jose which is a lovely town. Food was excellent and service was solid. A couple small items to note: They charge for wifi and dinner at the buffet always felt rushed. Take advantage of the a la carte restaurants. Overall, an upscale resort which was very enjoyable.

    Lovely Visit

    A beautiful resort, a good size for us seniors. We were very happy with our room! It was clean , the fridge was kept stocked, and towels as needed. Our bed was very comfortable and our ocean view room did provide us with views to the west. We found staff friendly, helpful and polite to us visitors, trying to use their English. The A La Carte Restaurants were good, the buffets offering good selections, the Sushi Restaurant provided something for Everyone. On our last night we enjoyed the Seafood A La Carte Restaurant. The food was well presented, with great options, and the Wait Staff outstanding, Our waiter Roberto A., was very attentive , welcoming us to his section. My one negative comment is that there is a lack of buss people in the restaurants and buffets and so Wait Staff are required to set and clean up tables as well as serve their tables . Unfortunately the wait staff cannot concentrate on their section of tables, and customer service is interrupted.
