    Buffett Caribe service

    The Caribe buffet restaurant always had a great variety of food for us and our two kids to choose from. The service from Darinel Gomez was outstanding ! He was friendly, attentive, engaging, and pleasant all around! He also helped us to practice our limited Spanish, which was so appreciated! Darinel always had a friendly smile on his face. Great server all around!!

    Fitness Center is great!

    The fitness center is really big and spacious. All of the equipment is clean. When we went we had help from Fernando. He showed us around and whenever we needed help using the equipment, he was there. He was extremely nice and took time out of his day to help us. I’m very impressed. 10/10 recommend 👍

    If you only speak English and like good food don’t say here!!!

    The hotel is nice looking but other then that everything is horrible. The workers don’t speak English and never smile. They have the worst customer service and will walk away from you if your having problems his name is luis don’t deal with him he’s rude. They have lines at front desk and don’t care if your waiting an hour. Employees walking around and not helping at front desk. The food is disgusting and old. On my entire vacations I can count on one hand how many times they asked if we wanted a drink. The coffee machines are always broken the ice cream machine is always broken. You have to pay for everything like bowling, the water park, skating EVERYTHING. I have stayed at many hotels and I am warning you if you have good taste stay somewhere else!!!!

    Food and Service

    It was really good food and all around great service, Alberto Diaz Adermo Garcia, especially did a terrific job waiting and serving us every morning!! We have no complaints everyone was very friendly and when you come here you learn a whole new culture that a lot of people don’t get to see.
