We were a little nervous about this trip having booked it through a time share promotion. The accommodations were very nice. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms that had a pool/garden/ocean view. Because of some construction going on the last few days we were upgraded to an ocean view 1BR unit which was beautiful. Food was much better than I had anticipated, the only disappointing thing for us was being restricted to 2 restaurants and not having access to the sushi and steak restaurant because of the promotion we booked through. The time share presentation was longer than 90 minutes because you eat breakfast first, BUT they really were NOT as pushy as expected and the tour was very nice. Lois was our salesperson and she was great!
We would recommend you ask for Antonio to be your server at Davino's...he was wonderful, great to talk with and knows his tequila! Try the eggplant appetizer, the grilled octopus, and shrimp and scallop risotto- and don't forget the chocolate lava cake!
Great service at the Bite Bar for lunch...
And you must go to the bar down by the beach and see Carlos- Best bartender ever! Make sure you ask him to show you what a Domino shot is! Get there before happy hour if you want to get your swing!
Nothing is ever perfect....as we had a few issues with construction noise and the water being turned off one day (for a short time) but the staff at the front desk was very accommodating and willing to help. Thanks Icarina....
The spa runs specials all week....we were able to each have 2 80 minute massages....so relaxing!!!
Overall a great vacation....beautiful beach and views from this resort.
