The hotel is utterly boring but very relaxing. I felt like a king the moment I was checked in. I had the European plan that offers a free breakfast. The breakfast was the best i had in years. I never eat pancakes at home but I ate their's. They have this French toast sandwich with ham and cheese that was awesome. I only ate two meals a day there. The dinner meals was very good and reasonable. I would like to know the spices on the spaghetti. The room had a high ceiling that made it feel roomier. There was plenty of hot water. The pool and the beach seemed private no vender's to harass you. If you book a trip stay away from the plaza, especially the city tour, all they take you to is shops that they way over charge you. They also get insulted when you don't what to buy there junk. Book tours through the hotel they might be a little more but they have to provide the service or they won't be used again. The entertainment is a short walking distance from the hotel. The casino opens after 5 but doesn't get going until after 10. The rooms are 4 room cottages which i liked and are very quiet. Be careful when you walk out of the resort the locals will try and scam you. The carriage rider wanted to take me to the plaza which was a 10 min walk.
OMG!!!!! what a experience we have, when the time was getting close my wife was freacking out, because of some of the reviews that she read about the hotel.. but we decided to go on and go. which we are glad we did the hotel is amazing the staff is excellent, food great. the beach was like 1 minute walk from the hotel and you go thru this nice bridge, by the beach you have the 24 snack/ drink bar. it was a amazing experience for me and my wife it was her birthday weekend. rooms are big, clean, pure white, the bed comfortable. we sit by the beach under the moon light it was so romantic and pacefull. WE DEFFENETLY WILL RECOMENDATE THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE THAT WANT TO HAVE A GREAT TIME. ohhh our check in was done within 5 minutes of our arrival to the hotel. NO COMPLAIN. JUST PLENTY OF COMPLIMENT TO THEM. THANKS TO BLUE BAY VILLAS, FOR MAKING OUT STAY MEMORABLE FOR LIFE!!!!!!.

Victoria Resort is peaceful and gorgeous. The staff is extremely friendly, the food is excellent and it is in the middle of a golf course. They have a golf cart available at any time to take you to the beach. Walking there was easy enough though, because it's only about a quarter of a mile away! Food: so many fresh fruits, so many choices for entrees, including local favorites, cakes, fresh vegetables, soups, fresh breads, omelet station, carving station, casseroles, etc. It's a lovely place. All drinks are included but I was disappointed with the wine selection. Other than that, I highly recommend the Victoria Resort.
Definitely different than mexico, not as much walking around town due to safety so it seemed. Great for more of a relaxing trip but did do some great excursions. I would recommend doing the VIP Paradise Island trip it was a blast.
The Palace didn't start as a luxury hotel but rather a private residence. But now it is open to the public to get a glimpse of what it must be like to live like royalty! The location is ideal. The Cliff House is literally built into the ocean-side cliff. The main building (The Palace) is set back across wonderful landscaping and terraced walkways with fantastic views. A third building (the guesthouse) has 4 guest rooms as well.
This is an ideal location for a relaxing and private vacation. Meals are set out by the staff on the back porch which receives a wonderful breeze all day. Other covered porches and gazebos offer relief from the sun when needed. The pool is comfortable and refreshing. Local wildlife includes resident chickens and peacocks.
However, all of these amazing facilities pale in comparison to the tremendous staff whose only mission seems to be to pamper you and make you feel like you are the only guests in the hotel. To be fair, on two nights, we were. But the morning, afternoon, and evening staff were attentive, courteous, helpful, polite and right there whenever they were needed. The service is truly world-class--unmatched at all but the most exclusive luxury international hotels.
Details: Location on the ocean, not as some Google Maps put it in Rio San Juan. Look for the kidney-shaped pool. ATM available in town; staff will give you a ride. Get a ride from airport thru the hotel to save hassle; meal plan available at hotel too.
Each and every one of our guests is considered royalty. Whether it be a cool drink served poolside or a relaxing massage by …More
