I spent a week here with my partner and 16 month old. We had the most wonderful stay. The resort is absolutely spotless and wonderfully maintained. The staff and service is fantastic, second to none. Some reviews mention the service is a bit slow in some of the restaurants, this may be true, particularly at the beach restaurant and the one by the large pool, but it didnt really matter, you're on holiday afterall, so time to chill out! The breakfast was fantastic, lots to choose from. The resort, although large, doesnt feel big at all, becuase it is so well designed. We stayed in one of the villas, and the pool for our "row" of villas and never felt busy or crowded. It definitely is expensive, there is no escaping that.... 25 Euro's for 2 G&T's (although they were HUGE, so you really only needed one!) Our room was massive, and the baby's cot went in the bathroom which meant he slept soundly while we enjoyed the use of our room - we were on the ground floor and had access to our own little garden, so in the evening we didnt feel trapped in our hotel room at all.
Definitely recommend stocking up at the local supermarket (5 mins in a taxi) and filling your fridge! Also, we ate at the local town (San Juan) several evenings and were glad we did, we tried several restaurants and had some fabulous food.
the only negative thing I can say is that the michellin starred MB restaurant was a major disappointment. I am all for fine dining, but my tuna starter was completely inedible, and the complementary appetisers they brought out was like a scientific experiment gone wrong. The food was simply not good, and the service, although very good, was sterile and dull. The whole experience cost just under 300 Euros (for 2 people!) and this was with no bottle of wine! Not worth it.
However, on the whole I cannot recommend this place enough, It was really quite wonderful, and a real treat to be a guest here. Enjoy
