We arrived on Christmas day and were very impressed with the quick check-in and our large, double balcony room. The grounds, pools and beach are pristine......just lovely.
I would rate this hotel a 4 star only. The food was rather repetitive and there was a real shortage of seafood until New Year's Eve. They put on an amazing seafood buffet.....there were other delicious looking items, but I just had the seafood.
Pedro who works in the buffet is amazing. Ask for him and you won't be disappointed. Please tip the staff.......they are so under paid.
Elizabeth at the front desk was awesome!
If you are looking for a clean, compact resort.......this is for you!
