A Very Nice Stay At A Very Manageable All Inclusive Resort

I have to preface this review by saying I booked on Expedia and the cost per night represented a very good value for the room all by it self. When you throw in the all inclusive it is unbeatable. This is not a 5 star hotel. Don't go expecting it to be super luxurious. The rooms could use some updating but the room size was decent with a good size balcony, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was very clean, the shower was spotless without a spec of dirt or mold in the grout, the air conditioner worked very well. Area for improvement in the rooms would be adding in a desk and chair or a small table and chair and more electric outlets. The door on my room had a one inch gap on the top allowing bugs to come in the room. When I complained to the front they offered to move me , but the room they offered to move to also had a gap although not as big so I stayed where I was. They need to scrutinize the rooms for problems like this. The resort is not overly large so the pools were never too crowded and they also have a nice beach although you can not swim in it because of the under current. The gym was good but closes way too early at 6pm! This is crazy and should be opened until 10 or later. The drinks were all good. The best part of the hotel was the very well prepared food. Having gone to some 5 star all inclusive I would say the food here was right up there. The first night there was the least impressive with a Mexican theme, but the remainder were all excellent. Being a smaller resort they can really fuss over making sure the buffet was right. Every night was a different theme so you won't get bored. The breakfast buffet was great with hot and cold dishes , cooked to order omelettes and even smoked salmon. But no cream cheese for the salmon. They should get some individual packages of Philadelphia Cream Cheese to put out for the breakfast, The baked goods were all good to excellent. Ate dinner 2 times at the a la carte Luna restaurant,. Both times the food was excellent. The menu doesn't change there but the quality is first rate. The Luna staff was amazing, the staff in the rest of the hotel was mostly good but they need to train some of the buffet staff servers to smile more to the customers. Over all I would have no problems recommending this hotel and I hope to return again. To repeat this is an excellent value.

Wonderful All Inclusive Stay

This was such a nice place! I assume smaller than many other all-inclusives but still great quality! Got this through a Groupon and was a bit nervous about quality but they had everything and more. Great pool, gym overlooking the ocean, drinks. And the service....the service was exceptional. Everyone was so responsive and genuinely appreciative. They took care of us and made it feel like a relaxing wonderful vacation! Note that this location is located in the quiter San Jose so you would need transportation to go into the city.

Comfortable, relaxed and family oriented

We went for spring break and took our 19 and 21 year old children. We were looking for a place that was relaxed rather than pretentious and less crowded, affordable but not necessarily tight budget. This was just the right fit. We knew we would want to venture out and see Cabo San Lucas but enjoy a quieter place to be more of the time. San Jose is more like a suburb and it felt safe. The food was not top notch compared with newer or larger places. The restaurant menu was the same each night and nothing special though the setting was nice. The buffet for breakfast and lunch was great. Dinner had good food some of the time. We did a taco hop in Cabo one night instead and kids really liked that. We got insider recommendations from one of our tour guides on an excursion. And he was spot on for the best tacos in town. I'd mention the names but don't recall. I remember what each place looked like though. See below for descriptions. Decameron needed some upgrades so if you are expecting all new or lavish accommodations, this isn't for you. Our shower and air conditioning leaked and beds were like cement. But we loved loved loved the pools, spa, feeling safe and the overall easy way and family-orientation of the place. You cannot swim in the ocean in this area but down the way there were places where they held surfing lessons. We took side excursions and liked returning to our hotel to relax and unwind. We met people from all around that were ours and our kids' ages and it made for a memorable and enjoyable time. Taco hop info #1 was a walk up place where you ordered right from the street. It was the furthest down and last we visited #2 was a corner place open to street w wooden tables and a center condiment station (salsas, etc) behind glass #3 was just down the street from 2 and smaller and had picnic style tables where condiments were served in a multi-sectioned tray on each table.

Perfect getaway!

We loved our visit to this resort! It was exactly what we wanted: small resort with beautiful scenery, quiet, and great service. If you’re expecting over-the-top fancy, this isn’t the resort for you. This was our first trip together as a couple and we found it was exactly what we were looking for. From the second we got there we were treated wonderfully. They greeted us with a drink and Cruz took our bags to our beautiful room while telling us all about the resort. Our AC always worked (which can be an issue at other resorts) and was cleaned very well each day. We found the bed to be comfy and really enjoyed having a seating area both inside and out. The minibar is stocked with 2 waters per day, unless you do the All-Inclusive Plus plan, but this wasn’t an issue for us because it was never a far walk to any of the bars. All of the water and ice at the resort is filtered (except the tap water in the room) so we didn’t have any issues. The alcohol isn’t premium top shelf, but the drinks were delicious and we didn’t mind. The beach isn’t swimmable, but we still took many beach walks and laid out under the palapas. The property has beautiful views from the beach and is maintained very well. Security is tight and we felt very safe all the time. Yes, you have to pay for WiFi and an in-room safe. We felt it was worth the money ($50 for 6 nights) and didn’t hesitate to do so. With the money we saved by booking this resort, we figured it evened out anyway. Pools: There are 3 pools, although the former “adults only” pool upstairs has now transitioned into All Inclusive Plus only. We didn’t mind, as there was still a swim up bar at the other pool and the Luna bar nearby. Many times it was just us in the pool! It was never overly crowded and was great for the romantic vacation we were looking for. The biggest plus: No fighting for chairs which can be the case at other larger resorts! There are water activities each day (aerobics, volleyball, water polo) if that’s something you’re interested in. They had yoga each morning too, with mats and towels provided. Food: There is NOT room service, but again, we didn’t mind because the food options were plentiful. At first we were worried that only having 2 restaurants would get monotonous, but the buffet changes their theme each night. We found all the food to be delicious and truly authentic Mexican! The breakfast buffet was our favorite, there are options for anyone. Luna serves as a lunch restaurant during the day and then changes to a fancier dinner service at night. There are not tons of options on the menu but we found it very good (the octopus ceviche was to die for!). They do require you to make a reservation in the morning for Luna’s dinner, but a quick visit to the front desk is all it takes. We aren’t picky eaters and love to explore new foods and we truly enjoyed everything we ate. The staff was outstanding from start to finish and took care of our every need. We are not fluent in Spanish, but we tried and it was appreciated. There is an activities desk downstairs that can book excursions for you and provide lots of information about the area. Nayeli was great and provided us with excursion ideas. We also did a photo shoot with the photographer at the resort and loved our images! The shoot was free, and then we paid $7 USD per photo. A big “gracias!” to Ricardo, Ruben, Marvin, Emilio, Valeria, & Cruz. They made our trip memorable and easy. We will definitely be back!

Meh! Stay here only if it's a super great deal!

Overall the hotel is "ok"- currently in a transition from what the locals know as a "swingers" hotel to a family friendly all inclusive to starting in September to an "adults-only" Pros: Nice big pool Rooms are spacious Landscaping is on point Multiple bars Beach is clean and beautiful Cons: -Zero room service- and no - you can't bring food to your room 🙄 -Only 2 restaurants- neither of which have raving food - Luna, their "upscale" restaurant - has a limited menu of about 10 items total - and all of it was very run dry. The buffet is okay - but has such limited hours it's hard to feel like your getting your money's worth in the all inclusive -Bars have limited hours as well and some of the liquor available is so gross you'd rather not drink at all -staff: polite 70% of the time but they are VERY strict on the rules and English is not the primary language at this resort - my Spanish is functional, but if you don't have a working vocabulary- you'll find getting things is much more difficult Most of the bartenders feel like its an inconvenience to make drinks - so don't expect anything fancy We had upgraded the "all inclusive plus" which gives you access to "top shelf liquor" (only available in the lobby - not helpful if you're out by the pool), as well as a private pool (no kids - totally worth it), and a better room view. It was only about $100 more so worth it for us - but nothing exceptional and I wouldn't pay any more than that. Other nuances include that the entire hotel staff eats at the buffet same as guests - i get it - everyone needs to eat- but it feels a little less "resort like" when the dining room looks like work and less like a hotel All the drinks are made with pre-made mixes - sweet and fake - so don't expect any high end cocktail options Overall - it's a low budget alternative - and if you get it for half of what the other hotels cost - it's a good deal - but if you like the all inclusive service and amenities - find something nicer
