    great service

    I arrived on Oct 8th 2019 and everything was great. I am a privilege club member, so I do get extra perks.the staff are friendly, the grounds are kept perfect, the service is top notch. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars are personal(judge for yourself) the food at the specialty restaurants wasn't as good as other resorts I've been to (I've been to quite a few) the buffets. Are good

    Family of 8 adults and 1 child are staying here. Hotel is lovely and staff very friendly. Food is also nice and would recommend to future guests. There is definitely a lot to do here and so there’s something for everyone! Gala helped us with our stay!

    Another great holiday

    Just returned from our second holiday here and it’s been another good one. The staff here are so welcoming and friendly. Stayed in adults only villa 82 and must say special thanks to Fabian and Cynthia the butlers who took care of all our restaurant bookings and for looking out for us in general. The a la carté dining throughout the 4 resorts here is amazing and would definitely recommend using them. We didn’t use any of the pools just the adults only section of the beach. We were a bit disappointed to see that the beach bar was closed but needn’t have worried as the lovely Jasmine from the infinity pool bar did beach service too and you never had to wait long for her bringing you a new drink. For breakfast and lunch we used Los Corales where we were always served by Alma who remembered us from our last visit and she always had a table ready for us when she saw us arriving. The only thing that let us down was the bar service in the main lobby / theatre bar. They kept running out of alcohol and on more than one occasion they had no gin left at all and only flavoured vodka.

    Pure Italian

    This is our 3rd visit to resort year after year. We first fell in love with this restaurant in 2017 and it's fabulous service, particularly Allejandro! A tall cheeky waiter who has a fantastic sense of humour and always gives attention to detail. Each year he remembered us and had special attention.. The food is absolutely gorgeous and well worth a visit, the staff are all hard working and friendly and we always visit a few times whilst on holiday. First class!!
