Resort Take Over
Tlashea, Tampa, Florida

I enjoyed this resort. It is wide spread and we went during a time after a big rain storm. Fortunately there was no rain during my time there. The restaurants were great. We had lobster one night, Japanese another. The buffet was plentiful with all sorts of options. Due to construction being done at the resort our room was upgraded to the adult side of the resort. It was a bit more peaceful, but since it was a bunch on a girls trip we made our way to the areas where there were people hanging out. When we went to the pool we would turn on our bluetooth speakers and have a party. Some of the other patrons would join us and we had a blast. The "secret pool" became our pool. The rooms were clean and quite a decent size. It felt like luxury. I tried to get a swim up room but there were no more available. I would recommend this resort for anyone all types of travelers. I believe there was something for everyone. My only complaint would be the club. The DJ was terrible and didn't play a good selection of music. It was a great space but he couldn't keep people in because the music wasn't good.

A bit disappointed

We booked our 14 night holiday with first choice who gave it 5 stars, I'd say it's more like 3.5. The pool that we used had tiles missing from the floor, the 'thatch' on the pool restaurant and walkways looked very old and worn and neededreplacing. We had 2 rooms, 1 in particular had some nasty staining on the floor to the side of the bath. We went to the sports bar on site, there were holes in the floor and the pool table wasn't in the best of shape. We were quite shocked at the weekly pool party which happens mid afternoon on a Saturday and also the foam party which again is mid afternoon on a Monday. Bearing in mind this is meant to be a family resort they had, on each occasion, 3 dancers on the side of the pool or on a podium dancing inappropriately (as if they're in a club dancing for money). We were there with our 2 daughters and we didn't expect to see 'entertainment' of girls bumping and grinding in bikinis.

Not for couples

The hotel is nice but not excellent...the services is average. Maybe the staff should be trained about how to be nice..they seem like they are doing this because they are paid but service is more than that. Food is not good in my opinion but this is what happen when you have such a massive services. The Beach was amazing and also pools and rooms.

When we first arrived I was sadly disappointed with my room, it smelled like mold. I went to the front desk and complained because I have terrible mold allergies. The night manager moved us over to the Punta Cana a Palace suites next door for one night, this started out as a 5 day trip which we lost one day due to flight delays we didn't arrive at the hotel until 11:40 pm. I was highly aggravated, tired and hungry, not a good combination The Dragon lady tends to rear its head. By the next morning we were called to meet with Customer Service personal Mr. Miguel and he turned our whole trip experience around by allowing us to stay at the VIP Royal suites Turquesa our trip became nothing less than super fabulous. We were banded with VIP bands and moved over to the Royal Suites, the creme de la creme experience which includes a gorgeous fully stocked in room at with local and top shelf liquor, 24 hour room service, private butler service. Now we talking vacation mode, we had VIP reservations at any of the al la cart Restaurantes, we had drivers to takes around the grounds we just wave our bands. It was Royal service all the way and I'm not to shallow to say I enjoyed every moment of the pampering. The nightly entertainment at the different hotels which we had access to was fantastic, the private Royal suites members only beach was exclusive and relaxing. The spa services "Amazing" oh did I mention the free 60 min Swedish massage, I was pampered and rejuvenated exactly what that type of vacation was meant to be. The staff were amazing always ready to assist and came to know us quite well during our very short stay. This was exactly what I needed to recover from my very demanding job. The family we're initially hiding their faces when I was complaining to the manager but the were pleasantly surprised at the outcome and efforts of management to turn our experience around.

Prepared to be hustled and conned

Hotel is 4 star at best with many of the activities advertised not on offer and some facilities under renovation. The worst part of it are the hustler tour agents in the lobby trying to get your business. Beware of Hotel Extras and Blue. The hotel itself seems to condone the hustling and will do nothing to resolve issues. We were trying to book our free return transfers to the airport but were given the grand run around. After proving all confirmation numbers and email confirming free transfer nothing was done. We are leaving tomorrow and will likely have to book private taxis to get us to the airport. Check out the competition before booking this resort!
