My husband and I found this hotel on a whim, and thought the location, and the property were perfect. All inclusive! Many pools and activities. Food, drinks et al. Very lovely staff, BUT I got food poisoning. I was told that someone would reach out to us, after we departed, over a month ago. NOPE. I would be cautious what I food poisoning occurred in one of the a la carte restaurants. We would not come back.

Needs updating

Miguel in the kitchen is fantastic. He prepared our catch after a full day fishing off shore. Front desk check in was fumbled. Forgot the DT Cookie, didn't recognize Hilton status. Used my travel companions name on check in paperwork vice mine (the person who booked and paid for the room with an actual HH #). Pool in main area needs some cleaning along the sides. Guests allowed to set up own radios to play their own music. Toilet ran non stop without jiggling handle. The rooms need updating. WIFI drops from time to time. Did not honor request to be away from the elevator or no adjoining rooms.

Flight cancelled Doubletree exceeded the challenge

Last week our return flight to Canada was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, however, our tour operator managed to arrange accommodation for over a hundred stranded passengers. Jessica and her staff managed to get us off the bus and into our rooms in less than 20 minutes, as well as handing out the warm cookie. We were allowed full access to the all-inclusive resort which brought comfort and solace to the weary travellers. We were duly impressed and thankful for your efficiency and professionalism! We got back on the bus and headed home feeling refreshed and relaxed! Thanks again for handling this situation so well! And a personal thanks for the WIFI!

All-inclusive/time-share strange combo

Don't expect white sand beach!! Sunsets are beautiful! The hotel service was good, the Hilton was fine, the time-share included in the mix made it a bit confusing. We spent time at both. We didn't like the purchase of drinks and a limited time to use them. It should not have had a short time frame to use drink tickets, it was our money! The time share people were accommodating and moved us to a nicer room. The hotel pools are nice, but if you aren't into loud you might want to hang out away from pool or at separate pool area.

Somewhat disappointing!

For $300 a night everything should work, and all-inclusive should mean just that. The tv is modern, but there’s no reception, and in a day where wifi is free everywhere, this place charges for wifi in the room. Get everything working, and it could be worth the price.
