Fabulous Hotel

Our second visit to this fab hotel. Beachfront location, wide choice of pools and within a five minute walk of a lovely marina with shops and bars. Friendly, helpful staff. An abundance of a la carte restaurants and two buffet restaurants all with a wide choice of delicious food. Good entertainment with super evening shows. Something for everyone. Would highly recommend this fabulous hotel !!

Only go if you plan on paying for a privilege suite.

In as not impressed and will not return. I had a comfort room and it was disgusting. I then I had to pay for an upgrade. We ate at the Mexican restaurant hoping to have authentic Mexican and that was horrible.

Amazing Trip

We stayed for a week at this resort.The check in was easy and quick. Our bags were brought to our room minutes after we arrived at our room. Our room was large, clean, and the ladies maintaining our room made towel animals each day. The food options were good, and we had a mini fridge with drinks that were refilled each day. Our favorite restaurants were the Italian and Mexican restaurants. The staff working in the restaurants were friendly and went out of their way to make your stay fantastic. We also enjoyed the kayaks and the snorkel equipment that was available for check out. The animation crew is friendly and welcoming. We had a blast on this trip!

On arrival our cases were collected by Ivan and once we were booked in he took us to our room, giving us his knowledge of the hotel grounds and where to find things. Our room was clean, fresh and decorated in true Mexican character. Complete with safe and fridge. The gardens are kept in impeccable order, just lovely to walk thru. The restaurants are mostly in one area, and as there are no booking procedures just turn up, should it be busy, take a buzzer and have a drink in the air con'd bar, or just try next door for your meal. Our favourite is the Italian and Mexican, the steakhouse by the pool is also good but is close to the gardens and the pesky mosquitos. Even wearing the 'most efficient' mosquitos bands from Thomson' didn't prevent us being attacked. I was bitten on the forearm inches from said band. Utter waist of money, no need to buy! The staff are great, many thanks, especially to Lorena, Miguel, Roberto, Zindy and Nicolas for looking after us, and many many thanks to Leobardo in the steakhouse and Angel the lifeguard for looking after Clare. The sun bed area is raked clean each morning, the beach has traces of seaweed but what do you expect from Mother Nature, the sea is so warm and clean we didn't want to come out until we started to wrinkle! Plenty of sport going on or if you prefer a quiet spot there are plenty to choose from. The entertainment team are 'fit guys' in more ways than one. Very energetic but not too pushy when trying to coax you to participate in the usual nonsense games. On a personal note exceptional thanks to gym instructor Miguel, who widened my experience in the gym. I came home a fitter man than I arrived. I've just to keep up the same regime now! The staff overall work their socks off, looking after those of us who show them the respect that they deserve, well done to them all. They deserve all the tips that they get.

Brilliant Holiday

We stayed at this hotel from 20th July-3 August 2017, and had a brilliant two weeks. The hotel was very clean and very well maintained. Our room was very big, and next door to our teenagers room. The food in the buffet was lovely and fresh, with plenty of choice. The restaurants were really nice, although the wait for tables was sometimes annoying. There was plenty to do at this hotel, from kayaking, yoga, volleyball etc. I loved the fact the hotel was in a gated community which meant you could go out for a nice walk, which other hotels on the highway lack. There was a harbour with bars and shops in walking distance. The harbour had dolphins. Where can you pop out for a coffee and watch the dolphins. Staff were friendly, and attentive. Especially the animation team. The evening shows were very good. The pool was warm and clean, and the beach was amazing. You must watch the sunrise The spa was wonderful with good treatments, make sure you bartar on price. My only criticism is you have to get up early for a sunbed in the height of the season, and our room keys stopped working on a regular basis. Great location for all the excursions, great for families with teenagers as the wifi was good.
