Also, Gregorio at the Avenue Bar was... More

We had the pleasure of being served by Evelyn Cueto at poolside all week. This was certainly not our first trip south but Evelyn was absolutely the best all round server we have ever experienced. She took initiative to bring beverages when warranted - from morning aqua and cappuccinos to great afternoon suggestions. She was fun, upbeat, friendly and all... More

Loved that no reservations were required for any meals and there was a large variety of foods offered. The resort is huge and immaculately groomed. Our room was close to the beach, clean and we...
