Chose this hotel because of it's location right on the coastal path by the beautiful Playa Dorada beach. It's a short walk by the sea to Playa Blanca old town and in the other direction to the Rubicon Marina with all the lovely bars, restaurants and shops there.
When we arrived the porter took are bags and took them too our room. When checking in we were offered a glass to drink being champagne, wine or water. The staff are so helpfully giving you all the information you need. This resort is huge! Different types of restaurants 2 being buffet all you can eat. I would highly recommend eating at the Thai restaurant, they put in a amazing performance whilst cooking your food. Multiple swimming pools children being separated from adults. 1 children's 1 heated and 1 sea salt. 1 children's hot tub and 1 adult hot tub. This resort it right on the beach walk out the back and there's a cocktail bar and sandy beach. 2 minutes walk to the right of the resort and there's a town. 5/10 minute walk to the left is the marina where there's more shops and restaurants. There's also a spa there. So there's plenty to do. We had a junior suite, which was more than big enough for 2 of us. You have a huge bed with a seating area. You get a balcony with a sea view (as requested) and you can see for miles! We spent most nights sat out on the balcony looking out.
I really recommend this hotel, it caters for everyone couples and family's. We got a shared transport from the airport to the hotel and every hotel we stopped at, not one looked as nice as this one. Highly recommend :-)

Accommodation is lovely and so clean - bar and restaurant are really good and happy hour 4-5.30 (happy hour and a half) is a great recommendation - staff are fantastic - pool lovely - what more could you want?
The hotel is large and in a good location. We had booked half board and were surprised that you could not purchase anything with cash in the hotel everything was charged to room, that is apart from the safe which was cash only!! The drinks were limited to those offered to all inclusive guests and again our request for a tinto de verano was met with a "no". Our rom 002 was a good size but I think that compensated for location outside cleaners gathering store cupboard and facing street at ground level. Cleaning was ok but not as particular as I would have expected. The food on offer at breakfast and at night is of a great quality and variety so no complaints there apart from again small limited drink selection which was for all inclusive guests.. Our room was not ready until 3.30 which is very late.. It was very unusual to find a hotel that clearly did not want visitors (no cash) or did not trust their staff I annoy sure of their policy as very often when we are on holiday we like to check out hotels, get a drink and snack etc do you can see if worth visiting, you cannot do that here...
Great location. Great pool area. Rooms large and I paid for a sea/pool view. Seperate bedroom and living room with kitchen arew. Lovely bathroom. We had the hotel breakfasts. You could have either continental or cooked (or both). Cooked was freshly done in front of you. Really good. Staff were really good and helpful.although it says limited maid service, our room was cleaned every day and towels changed. Towels thinner than normal but they rest dried well, unlike some of the softer ones! Pool loungers were luxurious round or rectangular with head cushions. Nice jacuzzi. Pool bar food was really good. Drink prices were normal prices unlike most other hotels! Sangria by the litre or by large glass was lovely.
Reception area is modern and I want my house like that! Light up planters in the well kept grounds were a nice touch. Plenty of games on offer from darts to boules to tennis.
Reception excellent and organised bike hire and airport taxi for us. Very efficient.
we have stayed at 5 star before in the area but will be coming here again next time!
Overall we enjoyed our stay. The room was modern and clean, the breakfast was excellent and the pool was quiet. However, the distinct smell of sewage in and around our room (especially in the mornings) was disappointing and the staff bordered on rude at times.
Room was comfortable and great with 2 small kids. Indoor pool as warm as a bath. Fantastic staff - cleaners came most days and made fun animals out of the towels for the kids. There was a complimentary bottle of cava waiting for the adults on arrival too. Marina was a bit classier as an area than some resorts but still had children's menus at all the eateries. Really convenient for excellent papagayo beaches but only with a vehicle. Kitchen basic but sufficient. Thoroughly recommend.
The original port and fishing village maintain an agreeable low-key buzz with good bars and restaurants, but it is the beaches that make Playa Blanca famous. West of the centre, on past the new and expanding fashionable Marina Rubicón, and a clutch of luxury hotels, lie the island’s finest golden white coves, known collectively as the Papagayo beaches. Three small cafes are the only development in this protected area.
