We got a great last-minute deal to stay - very glad we upgraded to the Royal Beach Club as the daily breakfast buffet, evening wine and snacks; and all-day beverages made it well worth the price. The pools were all nice, and we loved the small, easily-accessible beach. The sand is a bit rocky underfoot, but it was great to have a gentle, shallow cove where our son could play. The constant flow of the beach vendors was a little tiresome, but never a big deal. The fitness center was great, and I enjoyed the free classes. I didn't use the spa, but my husband did and had a good massage. Every meal was tasty, except for the one time we ordered room service (dried out and overcooked), and service was always professional. We had exceptional service from Armando in the Beach Club, and Pedro the bellman.
We booked this hotel to spent an overnighter due to our flight itinerary, we arrived at 1pm the clerk and the bell boy were very prompt with their service and got us check in very quickly and made sure that we were all taken care of. Check out was just as easy the room itself was very spacious with a nice view of the Marina but some of its fixtures are old and should be change.
The staff was very helpful seeing there was a language barrier. Rooms were clean, food was good and the staff was excellent. Seeing we were misinformed about our ALL INCLUSIVE PKG we had to pay for food and drinks which set us back. The resort did give us a per day deal, thanks to them.
We stayed with a 5, 3 and 1 year old. Good weather. On check in we did get approached about time share although a few no's and that was it. We were in the Kids & Co room which had bunk beds and sand toys. The bunk bed only had two flat sheets on it (not fitted so it kept slipping off) and it was a comfortable temperature but it would have been nice to been able to cool it off more. My husband and I got bit many times by mosquitoes so bring bug repellant! The floors are made of tile which is nice but the kids did slip in the room and outside although the staff are always out mopping up any excess water. No internet in the room but it was fine; we slipped out to the lobby maybe 10 minutes a day to check mail and such. Everything runs a little later dinner at 7 p.m., shows at 9 p.m., which worked out for us as we had a 2 hour time difference. The pool was nice and had many shallow spots for the kids there is also a kiddie pool. The kids went to the kids club and the 1 year old napped there. My 5 year old loved the night time shows. Always a variety, retro, illusion, pirate and they had a kid show first. Buffet food was average (no long lines), all three reserved restaurants were excellent, if you have patient children to sit through a 3 course meal. We hired a babysitter ($14 hr) for our last night and had dinner together. Very friendly staff. Tipped at bar & reserved restaurants. Everyone had a great time.
