It was our 1st time visiting here actually our 1st time travelling with out kids. The staff are amazing...the food was fantastic....the pools are always kept clean and well monitored. The nightly shows are top notch. The staff are what makes this resort a beautiful place to visit, we felt at home everyday and we can not wait to go back again in Spring of 2017. More>

Good times!

We stayed at this resort in March. It was a little surprising at first because of how 3 Star it really is but we had read a lot of reviews before hand so we knew what to expect. We stayed in Block 3, which I liked, close to things and far enough away from the shows at night just in case it was too loud. Let me start by saying that my (only) least favorite thing was the bedroom. Bedroom: It was definitely 2.5 star room but it had a courtyard view and bed was not bad. The shower resembled that of a prison (I have never been to prison but think movies) The air conditioner was super loud but got the job done. Ok crappy part done! Resort: The rest of the resort was pretty cool. It was absolutely massive with lovely grounds kept clean and presentable by the hard working staff. There are many different pathways you can walk on that lead you to the different blocks, lobby, restaurants, bars, pools and to the beach. Entertainment: There were many different things to do on the resort including morning yoga, renting kayaks and boogie boards and a small catamaran. At night there were some fantastic shows. Remember you're in Mexico and you'll love it. The dancers/singers work so hard and put on some funny, elaborate, and truly amazing shows. They, on occasion, include the audience (we were called up to dance) and it was so much fun. Some of the acts were reminiscent of Cirque du soleil! There is one club on the resort, it was ok, kind of dingy but fun none the less. Bars and Restaurants: Buffets were good, they were really big and there were a few you could visit. The snack bar was ok, typical American food, some salads and small desserts. Our favorite a la cartes were Mexican and Italian. To get these you must wake up very early and line up...but we tried showing up at 7:45pm to the restaurant of our choice and asking them if they had any openings. They graciously let us in at 8:10 both times. The staff are so nice and hard working. There were a few bars here and there, not as many as at other resorts, but we were hurting for a drink. There are some near the ocean too which is awesome when you're lounging. Beach and pools: The beach was clean and had light brown sand. We were not picky at all and it was perfectly fine. There were some waves and choppy waters at some points but thats to be expected. It was great to ride the waves on boogie boards. The sun beds are just a hard plastic so we brought we yoga mats to soften them up but our butts still went numb sometimes :) We either had to get up early to save a sun bed or stayed up late and tied a shirt to it. We were courteous about this though and came to use the sun beds early in the morning. We didn't use the pools but it seemed to be fun for the people around them, make sure you get a spot under an umbrella! Bucerias: We went for a walk along the main street outside the resort and came upon the market. It was fun to barter for things and to feel like it was a small part of authentic Bucerias. There are still a lot of Canadians and Americans living there. We had a taco and beer at Yoyomo's. Great walk and nice to see. On the way back we walked along the beach which was fantastic too. Internet: Wifi is available for free in designated areas. Just don't walk too far away. Or don't rely on it too much as you are on vacation! :) Overall it was a great trip and we would likely go again. Puerto Vallarta is near and there are lots of opportunities for day trips! More>

Fabulous location. Fabulous staff, food and service. Wide range of drinks. We were in block 4, which meant pool and sea views. Only slight negative was they were situated opposite where they had weddings which wasn't too bad, but had 2 consecutive night's. Clean, tidy and will definitely go back. More>

Good value

Dollar for dollar a good choice for a quick get away.worth paying the extra few bucks for block one,ocean front. Beach is great,best al la carte is Picollos. Check before booking Mexican holidays. Can get very busy as we found out, no coffee pot or fridge in rooms,toiletries very basic,no Kleenex but the OXO store at the entrance .Staff very helpful,would recommend. More>

We found this trip on Apple and the price was great. The rooms are basic but clean and the complex is safe. There is no fridge or coffee maker. A powerful blow dryer is in the room. One tiny shampoo and lotion was available but based on other reviews we brought our own Shampoos and Condtioner. Also the soaps are small but we always bring a pump soap so we were set. As noted in other reviews, wash clothes are hard to find unless you can catch housekeeping and one day they had none. The bed is not super soft but I found it comfortable. This resort has 5 pools with a bar at each one. We stayed in Block 5 which is the ADULTS ONLY pool. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the pool. We had a second floor room but that building had no elevator. I would definiitely stay there again. The pool does not have a swim up bar but the bars are at all pools. Bring a large mug or purchase at the resort so you don't make too many trips up for drinks. There should be waiters around the pool to improve the experience but we made do with the large cup both at the resort. Food - buffets offer a variety of foods for all meals. The servers are attentive and friendly. Restaurants: the Brazilian Steakhouse was good but i found the meats to be very salty. the sides were good and the cheesy rolls were great. The Asian restaurant was good, we tried the rib and the teriyaki beef as we enjoyed those choices. You must go to the Italian restaurant! it was outstanding. We chose the Lasagne Bolonase and were delighted. Bring your stack of singles for tips. The good service turns to great service when you tip appropriately. More>
