I'm a little late writing this review, but still wanted to contribute! I stayed at this resort for the 2nd time for a week during April.
Check in is a breeze and they greet you with a nice cocktail when you arrive.
The property is absolutely beautiful and we noticed the maintenance workers constantly trimming and planting to keep the grounds looking fantastic.
Rooms are definitely dated, but we never spend much time in the room, so it doesn't bother me. They are clean and the fridge is always well stocked with pop, beer, water! I hear the hotel is going to be remodeling the rooms, so that is a HUGE plus and will have me coming back in the future!
Restaurants are excellent and I love not having to make reservations for dinner. They also rotate which ones are open at night, so pay attention to the restaurant boards so you can visit each one of them during your stay!
Pool was extremely crazy while we were there! It was the first time I've ever stayed at a hotel and had to wake up before 6am in order to get a chair. Yes, I did say 6am. Despite having the "rule" that states, no saving chairs, people were reserving chairs before the sun was up. Here's my feeling on that. I don't mind if you want to get up that early to reserve your chair, but you better be there all day long. It really sucks when you are trying to find a chair by the pool and notice towels on them, but you don't see people using them until the afternoon! I noticed SEVERAL people abusing this. They would put towels down, head to the beach and you wouldn't see them until late in the afternoon. Jeez...
Pool was in need of a paint job, but still refreshing and the pool bar was always ready to serve up cocktails. One issue with the pool bar... We had a group that would consistently sit on the bar making it extremely difficult to swim up and get a drink. I was surprised the staff did not say anything. I don't know about you, but I don't want to have to touch the bar where someones wet bottom was sitting... gross.
Staff was AWESOME as usual! Always trying to get you involved, but were not pushy if you didn't want to participate. Also loved that they tolerated me "practicing" my Spanish haha!
Overall, I love this place! I teach high school, so when I go on vacation, I love the fact that I can come here and not deal with kids AT ALL. Definitely recommend for anyone looking to have a nice quiet, relaxing vacation!
