First of all bring water from the plane with you to the hotel because there won't be anything in your mini fridge, ever. For one week the food is edible but after two weeks it was very boring and bland. I never looked forward to meal time. You never had trouble getting a beach chair at any time of the day, in sun or shade so that was great. Only 3 t.v. channels are in english. The hotel is right in the middle of restaurants and flea markets where you can get you r souveneirs at a cheap price. The horse and buggy rides are fun, just check the price first and always have small bills as the drivers never have change. The drinks are very poor quality and did not taste great and they were very limited in their choices. If you just drink beer or something not exotic you will be ok. The a la carte dinner is a few tables set up around the snack bar pool and is not much better than the buffet. Hope you like extremely well well cooked meat because that is the only way they cook it. A good hint, bring your own salad dressing from home, theres is not good.
I ate of lot of the ham and cheese sandwiches at the snack bar. It is actually quite a nice little hotel, the staff is friendly and very helpful , but if they could elevate the quality of the food it would be fabulous. Bring tips, the ladies love lip gloss. I got some shimmery fruit flavoured ones at the dollar store ( 4 for one dollar) and the just loved them. Little things like make a big difference. There are a lot of Italians there and they don't seem to tip so when a canadian tips it is really appreciated and remembered in future service. The staff really is obliging. The entertainment is all lip-synching but they try, and luciano the entertainment director is a fun guy you just have to love, a very sweet man. This small hotel is great for one week but not for two. Enjoy the beach, The water is amazing and you don't need your water shoes. Bring your own beach towel and that save the hassal of always having to rent one. Bring some snacks with you, because you can't get any food after 9:30 p.m. , only drinks. If you don't like your room and want on ocean view just ask and the will do there best for you. We got ours the second morning we were there. Go and have fun and bring a sweater for the evening, That wind get down right cool. have fun
