We weren't to sure what to expect but luckily enough we enjoyed our stay at Club Raro. When we arrived we were told that our room had been up graded. We had the best pool and lagoon view and right oppossite the bar. The location was perfect! Price was affordable, staff were ok, drinks were delicious.

We stayed at Club Raro for one week. We enjoyed that is was close to town and had comfy beds, but that is about it. We found the reception staff to be the major downfall (the cleaning staff were lovely and friendly). They all seemed to not want to be working at the resort and were very unhelpful. They did...
