Just got back from almost a week at The Beloved with my girlfriend. I'm not a real all-inclusive fan, I tend to prefer experiencing the local culture when traveling abroad, but after a tough several months working hard at my job I just needed to get away without worrying about things like meal and entertainment planning. Sun, sand and laying around doing nothing was exactly what I was looking for. Some notes: The staff is fantastic. Very friendly and always looking to take care of you. I didn't have high expectations for the food, but on the whole, it was very good and better than my first all-inclusive experience. The room (Junior Suite) is very spacious and clean. As noticed on other customer reviews, the spa is spectacular though pricey. Nice and suitable workout room, it has everything I want and need to keep the batteries charged. I wouldn't call the beverage choices 'top-shelf', but I would consider them premium and above average (lots of Tequila with Don Julio being the best I found and offered at some of the bars). Some noted negatives: the beach is small and the water has quite a bit of seaweed. I'm more a pool person anyway, but also be warned, the poolside beds get taken up quickly. We were surprised at the # of kids present. And all infants/toddlers. I'm guessing because there is no cost associated with them for room, food and air fare. Wasn't a big deal, but noticeable if that's not your thing. Overall, fantastic value if you are a drinker!
Overall, an excellent experience. Very classy & plush hotel. Staff is Superb!!!! Food & restaurant service is outstanding. One minor thing: Noise from hotel next door's bingo game was very loud at our resort pool & very annoying & not classy. This problem needs to be addressed. The next doors music was so loud it engulfed the Le Blanc pool bar. Will definitely return.
