Well this was my first time of traveling to far away place and was looking forward to a nice relaxing break after having a bad time just weeks before.The good points was the staff in the bars & resturants were very good always pleasant and helpful.The food in the buffet was very good .The pool and beach was very clean.The bad points were we paid extra to stay in the Hacienda junior suite,on arrival we got checked in to our own lobby area but then we felt abandon as we had to wait 30 mins for someone to take us to our room.Well our room was awful it had not been cleaned properly it had 3 used bottles of drinks in the mini bar , a coat hanging in the wardrobe,no pool towels and to top it off it was like someone drilling in the ceiling 24/7.So we went o lobby to asked to be moved where was told we would have to wait till tues so went back to our room where we sat on the balcony all night because the noise was so bad.The next morning I went to main lobby where I explained again and this time we was given another room but we was out a room for 3 hours so a day lost as we stilled could not in pack.Our new room was better but still not what I had paid for but it was clean until we had a shower to find out the screen was brokien so water from shower flooded the bathroom.I reported this on that evening which was day 2 I'm now home after 10 days and it still was not fixed , in the end I got fed up with telling our rep and staff in the lobby.we got no apologies regarding our first room and was very disappointed as this was a special treat holiday for us.The charge for the room safe is far to over priced aswell.

I stayed here for 2 weeks in September with my boyfriend and another couple (aged 21-26) I really have to say we could not fault this hotel. We had a small problem with our room but the hotel were happy to help and moved us straight away. Roberto always had us laughing he went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Food was the best I'd had in any all inclusive, especially the Brazilian á la carte restaurant which we went to twice! Only downside to the hotel was the poor dolphins that are kept in a small swimming pool (4 or 5 dolphins), we booked to swim with them in a more natural environment I think it was called Delphinus... Tips do go a long way in this hotel. Staff all seemed very happy! I have already recommended this hotel to several friends and I will certainly be back! xxx

Good and bad

7 days October 3 to October 10, 2016. The good.....Beach is kept very clean by staff. Buffet food has good selection even for us picky eaters. Buffet waiters some good, others seem cranky. The staff that resets the buffet tables for the next person are fast and efficient. Housekeeping very good. Spa manicure by DEYSI very good. Landscaping and grounds are kept clean and beautiful. La Gran Tortuga beef, amazing! Lots of trams to get you around and drivers are very friendly. Unlimited free wifi in lobby is a bonus. Overall very clean. The room was sufficient. They were doing renovations but it didn't effect the enjoyment of our stay, Except they couldn't run the ceiling fans so the air was very hot and still in the lobby and lounge bar. The bad.......rooms so hot and humid you have to have the air conditioning set to meat freezer level to keep pillows and sheets from feeling soaked. Our once dry clothes got mildew hanging in the closet. The Palapas? On the beach a bit too small for good shade cover. Having lots of trams is great, but they drive on same walkway as pedestrians, so you spend a lot of your walk moving onto the grass to get out of thier way. Pool bar service was terrible. Bartenders on cell phones instead of serving drinks. We even tipped them very well and still was ignored while standing there waiting, until they finished more important things than serving you. Except one guy in a blue jacket ( a manager maybe) who was super friendly, made the best drinks and gave us the best 2 hours of our whole stay. I think the renovations in lobby made seating very limited if you wanted wifi. You had to sit on the steps not enough room for chairs. If you don't support captive dolphins doing tricks avoid the Dolphin area and let management know about it. We prefer non animal entertainment ourselves. After 11pm you will either go to bed, leave the resort or go to hacienda. The lobby and everything around it shuts down. The safe rental is pricy compared to other places.

Very nice!

Really nice hotel/ compound! Wonderful place to visit. Lots of things to do included in the price of the hotel (bike rides, tennis) long transfer but worth the wait. A few issues which were resolved as soon as reported (no bathrobes/ slippers). Also compensated with a free bottle of tequila!
