I had the best vacation ever here. Let me start off by saying Francisco Minimin helped me and my girlfriend around the resort the wholetime. Also, the waiter Carlos was the most help the first night of getting us acquainted. I also wanted to appreciate the help of Kiti, Pablo Piraso, Mosquito, Julio Nice, Lenny, and Julio The Rock!

The first thing I can say is have plenty of $1 bills!!! Everyone wants to help, but it will cost you. You should also brush up on your Spanish. The majority of workers here either don't know English or pretend not to know it. It seemed like the workers either liked you or hated you. The Spanish speaking customers were... More

The hotel claims to be excellent and VIP for what? There were stray dogs roaming around, drinking water from the pool, there was a woman bartender in the beach VIP section that was so rude, she ignored us for almost half hour and kept serving the white people only (Europeans)...mind you, we are Latinos and she discriminated us by ignoring...

Firstly I would like to say the staff here are amazing. Each staff greeted me and I made friends in a short period of time you can tell they like what they do from cleaning staff to bar tenders. I want to point out the great time I had because of Kitty and Francisco at the pool area! At the... More

I have to start off by saying how crucial the role of Trip Advisor (and all its contributors) played in ultimately booking this vacation resort. I read through so many of the lengthier posts, because I know if someone truly feels strongly about recommending a vacation spot, they put effort into their review. Thanks a bunch! My boyfriend and I... More
