Place is going down hill fast
We've been coming here for well over 10 years with family, and have been members, but every year, it just gets worse. Today for example marks the 3rd time since we've been on this trip that we cannot get towels. Furthermore, the hotels policy on people saving seats at the pool is awful. People come out at 6am, toss down a towel and a book on a seat, and never return. The hotel does nothing about this, and as such, you simply cannot find a seat. The food has gone down hill as well, and they charge more than $115 USD for a single lobster that's ~$20-30 USD at most beach restaurants around (which taste better). In fact the first meal we had here was terrible. Fish (red snapper) was not cooked well at all. The service at the pool (if you can find it) takes forever in many cases. And, don't get me started with the timeshare BS. They push you into an "members update", which is a hard sell for hours on why you should spend north of $100k because (as they've admitted), they've oversold the units here, and it'll only get more difficult to get a room in the future. When talking to other patrons here, the feelings are pretty universal. Lots of people complaining. Sadly, the management doesn't care. At this point, I absolutely cannot recommend this place. Not being able to get a beach towel, pool chair, decent meal, are not acceptable. These are basic things you expect. And if they fall short with these very basic things, consider how everything else is handled.
Great Value, Super Location
We spent a week there after three weeks in another property. We loved the easy access to the beach and pools. We did the all-inclusive and the food and drinks were of high quality and easily available. It is an easy walk to Bucerias on an old concrete walkway. I enjoyed taking pics of birds along that route. Signage could be a little better and there are some obstacles such as unmarked screens and vertical glass that pose hazards for us older folks with diminished vision. (And there were a lot of older folks around.) The water aerobics instructors were top-notch; the waiters were attentive; desk people were efficient and well-informed. Bar service from the Italian restaurant was slow becuase the waiters had to go to the other building for drinks. There ought to be a better way to do that. It also seemed that any time materials were being moved that the carts made too much noise. The walks and patios are mostly stamped concrete or pavers and the carts are like the hard wheeled carts at Home Depot. Rubber tires or bicycle-wheeled carts would be a lot quieter.
5 Star staff
Another wonderful vacation in our home away from home! The staff here is amazing!!! Humberto & Jose behind the front desk are fabulous! Octavio DeLa Rosa, our pool & beach waiter couldn’t have been more accommodating! Lucy, Aurora and Bertha at the concierge desk are efficient and full of warmth and professionalism. All of the bellmen are fantastic! They are our first contact and treat us like family. I don’t remember all if their names, but Roberto & Antonio are 2 who stand out. Can’t wait to return next year!!
Home away from home
This resort has been our second home for 17years. It is in a perfect location right on the beach. Every room has an ocean view,some better than others, and the rooms are clean and equipped with everything you need. The service and staff go beyond to make you comfortable and happy.
We love flamingos!
We just love this place. Our second time here and already planning to come back. 16 days with a friend joining us for 7. We had a 1 bedroom with a full kitchen. We were able to cook ourselves for 11 and did all inclusive for 5. It is just the right size resort for us. Beach access and pool are great. Employees are super friendly. Activities offered were great. Activities staff were wonderful! We learned to paddle board (thanks Alex, Jose, Ernesto) did water aerobics (thanks Cynthia, Betty) , watched great shows (thanks everyone!!!). They do it all. Close to Bucerías too for fun restaurants. Again, we love this place!
