The grounds are amazing. If you like to eat on vacation, make reservations each night. The buffet qualities are poor. The fruit was either not ripe or smelled/tasted like wet dog! The lettuce was dry and in large chunks. The fresh omlettes were very good each morning.
Absolutely no swimming on the beach here.
All inclusive should be used loosley as they have a mark up on certain drinks including coffee as well as activities you would like to partake in. All inclusive means buffets, reservations for dinner if made (but wine is extra at dinner plus some of the meals are extra) and a place to sleep. You have to pay for coffee for your coffee maker in your room!
They put us in the wrong sized bed and then told us they could not promise what we reserved. The next day, they had someone with our size bed check out and called to move us. When we brought our luggage downstairs, they said it would be another 2 hours till the room was ready so we waited in the lobby. We were not compensated for this inconvenience or even offered anything for our troubles.
One day our room was cleaned and they left us with no towels. Easily fixed.
Note about PV- they know your a tourist and everything has a steep price. $10 for 6 oz sunscreen, $10 for a towel you need for an excursion that was not listed that you need it (Beach Boy), $14 for bug spray, $20 for over the counter medicine. Be prepared to pay and they convert USD at whatever price they want. Better to have Peso's.
