I had a great stay at this resort. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. Actually one of the best travel experiences I have had in my life!! The entertainment guys was wonderful, working day and night to keep us all smiling, and particularly Scoobidoo did an excellent job at this. Thanks for teaching me how to dance without stomping on...

Everyone there was very friendly, from reception, to entertainers and service. Very accommodating, clean and entertaining. The beach was beautiful and a very fun place to vacation with the family or even on a romantic retreat. Make sure you find Juan Ramon and "Superman".

The only thing I don't like in this hotel is the deployment of staff soliciting for the time-share type of marketing H10 properties. They are like vultures preying on guests who are there to relax and enjoy the facilities rather than be annoyed by these aggressive staff. The hotel should instead just put a site where guests can voluntarily go... More
