A bit far from civilization but a great place to relax. Wonderful beach and grounds. 5 star buffet meals as well as top notch a-la-carte. Staff not particularly helpful and spoke very little English. Internet was a bit spotty. Great gym.

Although it is isolated on a private beach - which is actually very appealing to me, this hotel is truly excellent. All room face the ocean, the service is first class with English being widely spoken by front desk, concierge and lounge personnel. Breakfast buffet very tasty with a wide variety of foods available.

Stayed here on a bus tour and it was very nice. The view is awesome. Every room overlooks the pools and ocean. The staff was very nice and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious. Our only problem was the guy taking money for our tours was only available for a short time. So we had to make a special... More

Stayed there several times and usually happy but this time we did a discount package and found out after check in that waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay at the bottom in the fine print it stated no lunch was included at all, and no beverage service until after 3 p.m. so there was no discount after you do the match.

So we booked through Signature Vacations and chose the all-inclusive package. Very disappointing to find out, while there, that room service was not covered and we could not order off the menu any time. The buffets were okay but nothing to write home about. We had no issues with the drinks but if you want certain brands you have to... More

The buffet food was a little disappointing but the pool and the drinks were great. Wish there were more dining options. The ceviche was very good. The room was comfortable. Went on a jungle walk and saw several sloths but no monkeys.

This hotel is exquisite. The service wonderful. We has a school reunion recently with over 120 in attendance. It was wonderful how well we were acommodated in a room block. For a group, we had excellent food, drinks and anything we needed. Do not hesitate to have a large group here. The Lobby, ranchos, bars, and everything were top notch.... More

Traveling with my best friend, we arrived on 04/18 and stayed for 5 days. The property was absolutely lovely. The grounds are perfect, everything is very clean, nicely decorated. Every staff member that we encountered was wonderful and so accommodating. Juan in particular went above and beyond to get us settled in our room after some check in confusion. We... More
