Just leaving after 3.5 days here. I had a King Ocean Front room in Las Brisas. Nice balcony with great view, comfortable bed. I think the sofa could be made into a bed as well. Sunken tub, walk in closet in bathroom. Small refrigerator too. Good TV channel options and wireless connection included. Things to know:1) if you are a... More

Let's start with the good: It is in a beautiful location, high up on a cliff and the 3 pools (that I saw) were all pretty nice. I thought the room was a decent size as well. Palomino Island was pretty cool too. I wish my 3 kids were with me because they would have loved it (I just wouldn't... More

The combination of the setting, the resort, the pools, the island, everything was wonderful. The food was a bit pricey, but I think most of the cost of the meals was the drinks. You get what you pay for and the food was very good.

For starters, the resort is located atop a beautiful green hillside, which means you have to take the funicular, which is a lift, up and down the multiple poolside levels. This didn't bother us, but may if you're elderly, or disabled. The pools are beautiful, upkept, and great for families. We moved to an oceanside view room for an extra... More

We had a nice trip this past Febuary. A 3 day escape with our three teenage children. Had been to the hotel 8 years ago and liked it. Hotel has been a bit taken to the extreme to entertain kids. Don't really like the video games everywhere. Was looking to detach from technology a bit more. Room was very nicce... More

This resort has so much potential with its location, but fails to create that "luxiorious" experience that we paid big bucks for. The food is overpriced and disgusting. (Ex: we ordered nachos and the cheese was definitely artificial like it had just been sprayed out of the fake cheese cans.) The most fun we had this vacation was when we... More

We loved this hotel! The water park is the best, and the private island was wonderful. Accommodations were perfect. Resturants were absolutely wonderful but be prepared to pay!! Transfers were convenient and easy. Staff is friendly.

Like the title, it's an awesome hotel, with the water park, the jet skis, a bit of hiking you could call I guess, great restaurants, you have live music while you dine, you got the beach which is always clean and you'll always find a good spot to relax an tan.
