i am 25, we stayed for 6 nights. The staff was amazing extremely courteous and helpful. Our room was basic with a semi ocean view and semi garden view, truthfully you don't need anything extravagant you don't go on vacation to spend the entire trip in your room. We spent everyday on the beach absolutely fantastic! The hotel is quite large it has 3 a la carte restaurants, one 24 hr cafe and a buffet. You must make reservations for the a la carte restaurants. "las resas" the steak house was decent .."Trinidad" is the restaurant on the cliff by the ocean its a seafood restaurant.. The food was horrible and are only given two options the langoustine or the chicken I tried ordering the chicken and the waiter insisted I order the langoustine.. it was absolutely horrible.. After eating at Trinidad we gave up on the restaurants and stuck to the buffet. the food at the buffet was fresh and pretty good the chefs make the food right to order in front of you and you can choose how you want your meal prepared or you can choose from pre made items. truthfully the buffet food here was 100% better than the buffet food i tried in las vegas!!...the staff at the buffet were amazing although on our last day for lunch we were asked by one of the waiters at the buffet if we could go to the mall plaza next door and purchase some clothing items for them it was a very awkward moment we managed to change the subject and left.. The pool is quite nice but freezing compared to the ocean there is a pool bar but you cant swim up to the bar. The hotel is absolutely spotless always clean the entertainment is pretty good but is over early. overall from my experience at this hotel it is a 5 star I had a wonderful time. If you are young and looking for more of a lively hotel to party this is not the resort for you. If you are looking for a quiet peaceful relaxed vacation this is the perfect place.
