"Paradise in Bucerias"

We arrived on Sept. 10th -17th and from the moment we arrived were greeted with friendly smiles and outstanding service. Our room was 1303 building #1, and as we walked in and saw the wonderful view we were thrilled. We had been warned by others the rooms were old and we may not like building 1, but that was not the case for us, the room was clean, nice little balcony , air conditioning and a ceiling fan. With the humidity was welcomed. Shortly after arriving a turtle came up to lay her eggs and as the crowd came to see what was going on the staff explained the procedure of what was about to happen. The staff were very protective of the turtle and the experience for everyone was wonderful. We started to walk around the resort and see all the amenities, and always got a smile or a hello from staff, some spoke english better than others, but everyone tried their best. We had time for a quick swim and then to a nice buffet looking onto the beach. I can't say enough about the variety and choices in the buffet. As I am not a meat eater there was plenty of great dishes to choose from, and everything had nice flavors. As we were finishing our dinner a staff member from the entertainment crew stopped to talk to s about the theatre, so at 9:00 p.m we grabbed a drink and were treated to a great show of wonderful dancers "Rock n' Roll " was the theme. We were very impressed with the host Danny, his humor and interactive skills were phenomenol. So needless to say we were enjoying our first night.The next day we went off to the Transat orientation meeting and met up with Danny and Luis, who explained how the entertainment worked during the day and evening. The transat rep showed up Yessica and informed us of all the opportunuties for excursions. So with that we were excited to go and book a couple, we chose the City Tour, the Rythym of the Nights and the Snorkeling with Bill to the Marietas. All 3 excursions were memorable and would suggest any of them. The only ones we heard that people had problems with were any of the jungle tours, bugs and bites. We took a quick walk up to the top of the street to a local bank, but later found the hotel to be very close to the banks return on money so did use the hotel cashier after that. We continued into town on the beautiful 20 minute walk and found the market, an art gallery, many restraunts and had alot of fun with the vendors. Sunday night we took advantage of the night show at the theatre and had a great time, we were chosen as part of the show and at the end voted "Perfect Couple" by the audience. We spent time on the beach, the water was warm, clean beaches, and lots of chairs and huts for coverage. Monday night we did the Rythym of the nights tour and would highly reccomend this excursion. It was like being on Survivor, all lit up by candles or torches, the only way over to the island is by boat. The dinner was great and the show was put on by Cirque du Soleil dancers. There were many activities that go on continuosly at the resort to keep you occupied, and if you want quiet just go to the adult pool. We were very happy with the ala cart choices, we did the Wok Wok and the Piccolo twice, all meals very good. At the Piccolo we had Omar serve us, he was so friendly and happy and attentive, the food was amazing. We witnessed 2 Mexican Quinceaneras, both were beautiful and the staff explained to us what was happening, and we joined in with the clapping and celebrations. It was also Mexican independance holiday week so alot of the locals were at the resort by mid week. We enjoyed the place full of the mexican families, who smiled and tried to communicate with us. We felt very happy to see the independance celebration on Thursday and see how the people were proud of their country. The resort was decorated, there was entertainment, games, and a fair like atmosphere all around. We were able to get to the show and it was very good and it ended with a great firework show. The entertainment crew at this resort went above and beyond to interact with people, they were so outgoing and great personalities, smiles and laughs at all times. I was unable to go into the water for 2 days(sprained ankle) so decided to paint pottery by the pool, and did the catamaran from the beach. We will definately be returning and look forward to other excursions and just being at a resort where the staff were happy you were there. During our stay we felt safe and had no problems with any vendors. More>

We had a perfect room; really comfortable bed and air conditioned, excellent facilities. Our room was really clean and fresh on our arrival and was cleaned every day by the friendly cleaning staff. The hotel staff were all fantastic; always aiming to please but without ever feeling forced. The food was fantastic and the choice far surpassed what we would have expected from a three star resort. Our rep was Lorenzo and he was fantastic at providing us with all the local knowledge, he was incredibly committed to ensuring guests had the perfect break, again without feeling forced. We loved every minute of our stay and would certainly go back again! More>

We were back again after our visit in June of this year...As always we were warmly welcomed by staff and management and enjoyed a relaxing week at the RDC. We did a room change after our first night as we were located in Block 5 but on the stage/disco side and the noise was an issue. We moved to the opposite side of Block 5 and had no issues with any noise thankfully. A few points to assist other guests is "Smoking" guests smoked in the pool and on sunbeds along with the exterior of restaurants and entrances to the various blocks. Time to have a "No Smoking Area" allocated as it is bothersome to non smokers. Also drinks in the pool should not be allowed as we noticed spillage resulting in contamination to the pools. We visited two only of the A la Carte restaurants as many have previously mentioned who wants to be up so early to make reservations but we did succeed in making two reservations. The Rodizio was a great disappointment, service was good and some of the meat but the cold accompaniments were not so good. There was flies galore on the dessert trays which we obviously passed on. The Piccolo once again provided great service and from starters through to dessert was enjoyable along with the air con. The buffet selections varied each evening and offered sufficient choices for everyone. Some of the pathways and pool areas are in need of work/repair a definite challenge for anyone with mobility issues. Block 3 is the only unit with an elevator if you are planning on visiting. We did miss the vendors that would normally be around the pool area in the evenings, even on the Mexican evening, so unsure why they are no longer attending. As it made a great addition to stroll around in the evenings and do some shopping. One other issue is the charge for the safe and feel this should be included for everyone's benefit. Overall we once again enjoyed our visit primarily to the wonderful staff who can never do enough for you and will be back to re visit as soon as possible. More>

1st time on Pacific side.

Great food and many choices in Buffet or specialty restaurants. Clean rooms but no mini bar. Had to pay for safe rental. Nice beach warm with 4 to 6 feet waves. Adults only pool was nice other pools were crowded a bit. Our 15 years twins who train regularly were not allowed in the gym, but were happy to know a local gym was a 5 minute walk away, they had bought a week pass. Night shows were really good with talented personnel. More>
