We stayed here for a short weekend trip in October with 2 kids. What more can I say about the staff except marvelous.....they accomodated EVERY need and were always pleasant whenever they met you! They really made you feel welcome and I saw this with everyone we encountered there and with everyone the staff members encountered. It sure made the stay excellent. The food was DELICIOUS!!!! THe cook is fantastic. THe fry bake for breakfast is out of this world! Dinner could be a bit earlier especially with the kids - they were too tired to wait for dinner @ 7pm but wouldn't you know it - the staff brought the food to the room!!! Just excellent these folks!!!!
The location is breathtaking - the views are spectacular - straight out of an ad for a Caribbean vacation. I LOVE the hammocks they have everwhere especially the ones right in front of the ocean!!! It's also quite peaceful - you could enjoy some great R&R.
Now for the not so great part - there seem to be a bit of flies in the Dining area so a fly zapper would be a great idea. Our room could do with some upgrade. The TV did not work, the water pressure when we showered left a lot to be desired and the windows did not close properly. I must say we did have a better room before this one ut moved since the A/C was leaking. So, Playa del Este perhaps does needs to invest in some room upgrades - most of the guests agreed that some type of cable TV in the room would be nice. For couples this doesn't matter but with small kids, I felt the railings could use some glass or some other transparent material so as to not lose the gorgeous view but still maintain safety as I was always nervous with my little ones going too close to the railing. Would have given 5 stars had it not been for the room and the railings!!!
But with a staff as pleasant as they have and grounds as gorgeous - I would be willing to revisit but I would be picky about the room! Thanks for the great trip Playa del Este!!!
