Great Escape!!

Posted 06-Feb-2016
This is a great resort!! My husband and I came here last year and decided to come back again! The service is pretty good here. A little more attention by the servers at the buffets and the restaurants would have made it better. We waited quite awhile for drinks at both and actually walked out of Sante Fe Steakhouse. Don't waste your time!! I emailed ahead for the restaurant reservations which was great. I asked for a third floor room in my email because last year the people upstairs made a lot of noise. Our original room was on the second floor! We had to wait an hour and a half to get a third floor room which had a nice ocean view! I didn't like that I had to pay for late check out!! Our flight wasn't leaving until 6:45pm and check out was noon. We will definitely return to this resort.

Great Resort

Posted 01-Feb-2016
We booked our stay at the last minute and only stayed two nights. The beach is amazing. The food and buffets were very good as well. Rooms were modern and clean. It was a fantastic resort for our limited time there.

Very large resort but overall nice place.

Posted 31-Jan-2016
Pros: Beaches were beautiful and well maintained. Plenty of lounge chairs available at the beach and pool areas. La Brisa Restaurante was excellent.
Cons: Schedule for available activities/entertainment provided to rooms. Scheduling activities/excursions and dinner, long lines.
Location: Canopy Zip Line Tour was GREAT! Hotel told us the trip would be 25 - 30 min. but it actually took 1hr 15min. Julio the tour guide made the trip.
Not Ocean Front room that was expected so ensure that you clarify how far from the beach you consider Ocean Front. Limited view of the water and long courtyard between rooms and beach. Food was good and the specialty restaurants were excellent. The service at the buffet was lacking but staff also seemed overwhelmingly busy. Resort was well maintained and staff would assist if needed. Very poor WiFi service and $35 for 5 days, had to go to Gift Shop to purchase and then assist with connecting. Might be worth the time to check on International plan instead of depending on hotel connection.
