A week of relaxation and great food
STEVEN H.
Mar 15 2019
We have been to canto del Sol several times now, all with Apple. Every time, we leave just waiting to come back. Apple covers all the details, we just enjoy. Really unhook from reality for a time and feel safe, cared for, and dotted over. Just right!

good hotel
DIONNE K.

I would give this hotel 3.5 stars. Food was average on the whole although new years eve special dinner and mexican firsta dinner was very good, as well as the a la carte italian restaurant. You need reservations if you want to eat at surf and turf and it was full while we were there. The pool was crowded during the day but kept clean and in good care. The beach was average but ok for swimming- free kayaks were fun also. A bit crowded because was on a public beach and smoking was permitted which on the beach which I didn't care for. The tennis courts were nice ( 2 clay courts and 4 indoor courts. I took tennis lessons each day which were good. Staff was very helpful and very nice. Good service. The rooms were clean and well kept. The hotel is in a good location close to town. Overall, I enjoyed the hotel and it was a good experience.

Canto del Sol is a small resort with a very small beach. If you are going to enjoy a beach, this is not the hotel for you. In addition, the water at the beach is very dirty and filled with trash so swimming is not a pleasant experience. There are two pools, and they are also very crowded. The employees at the snack bars and bars around the pool are excellent. They work hard to get drinks for everyone and wait on you at the beach, bringing food and drinks. The rooms are nice but simple, no refrigerators, but kept very clean by the staff. The restaurants are nice and it was easy to get a reservations. The food at the buffets was good, and there was no never a line to get in. The location is really great, close to town, and also close to shopping.

They constantly try to sell you time shares and adventure trips. We had ants all over the kitchen, even though our room was "one if the best". The master ceiling was dripping water. Their solution was to move the bed to a different wall.

Our room in the hotel was dated and not very nice. The bed was very firm and we had a difficult time getting a pad to try to make it softer. What Canto Del Sol lacks in up to date facilities, it makes up in excellent service. I was very impressed with the staff energy and service. We spent a lot of time by the swimming pool and the employees were quick to bring drinks. Dinners were great too, staff here are very motivated and fun.

We were looking for a totally relaxing vacation in the sun and this was it. The hotel rooms and sahred areas were kept sop clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The small hotel was right on the beach, where we sat under umbrellas and read.

When you walk in they are right on top of you to check you in so you can go and enjoy your time. Everyone is so nice and helpful and when we had a problem they asked no questions and did what had to be done to make us happy. Will be going back again next year.

this was the best vacation we ever had together. The hotel was exceptional, food excellente, service beyond compare and the staff extremely friendly. The accident that occurred at the end was the only bad spot and did not involve the hotel at all.

We were excited to get away. We booked through Expedia which ranked this hotel as 4 stars. We were in room 483 and it overlooked the main pool and had a great view of the ocean. This is an older hotel and is very clean.The bathtub in our room was chipped with large pieces of enamel missing, the toilet was broken, the faucet was loose in the bathtub. The bed was hard as a rock and the balcony was very tiny, but did accommodate two chairs. The restaurants: a buffet (omelets and breakfast smoothies, tacos) and snack bar (wings and nachos, burgers and fries). There are three other ala carte restaurants that require reservations. Surf & turf is right on the ocean side and is quite nice. Food is cooked in the snack bar. There is one dish with shrimp and steak, no lobster, an Italian and a Mexican restaurant as well. The service is fine. The food at all restaurants is not special. The buffet had several offerings of food. The filet at the Surf & Turf was good. The other two restaurants was ok. None of the food was ever served hot. There were no Gluten Free foods at all despite the signs saying the food was gluten free. For example the lasagna was gluten free - but of course it wasn't. I think they may have been confused - there may not have been bread in the lasagna but the noodles were of course made from wheat flour. There were two children's pools and two pools also tennis was available for one hour. Overall, this is not a place we would return to.

This is my home away from home. Canto Del Sol is a small hotel timeshare resort not far from the downtown. We bought when it was John Newcombe tennis club. We have beach front 2 bedroom unit. The location is great Close to everything. The staff has been there for ever with great service. We don’t do all inclusive but I’m sure it good. All

Beachfront, center of town best things going here

Check-in and check-out service was horrible. Don't tell you anything, rude. Some drinks were good - vodka, some were non-existent - tequila. Food was average at best. It's changed from a timeshare sell to a 'vacation club' sell. Still, both a bad idea considering the good deals to be had.

My gf and I stayed here for a week. The resort is on the smaller side but nice. It was clean and the grounds were lovely. The staff were wonderful and very helpful. We had no issues with our room and it was cleaned daily. The food was a good variety and they had many options for cook to order. My fave is the omelette station for breakfast! My only complaint was the lack of cleanliness by some of the staff. One in particular at the snack bar was eating food and one instance used her finger to scoop guacamole, licked it off and did not wash her hands..... we did not eat at the snack bar after that incident. My only advice to management is to have some training regarding safe food handling. All in all a wonderful vacation and I would definitely return to this property!
