I went here last year with my mom and dad, along with some of his co-workers. It was a fantastic place! As soon as we arrived at the hotel we were given mixed drinks, cool towels and even snacks! it was amazing! we were in a large group and still checked in very quickly..we were inside our room within 15 minutes!
I am 22 and found that there were people my age but also a wide variety of ages. The hotel grounds are beautiful and very well kept, and it is so close to a perfect beach! The nightly entertainment was good and one night we even watched a movie outside, that was fun! The service on the beach and around the pool was great, within 10 minutes of taking our orders we got our food or drinks. Every staff member we came into contact with was extremely friendly! The room service we ordered was great and the maids always kept the room perfectly clean. We did not have an "oceanview" room, but we were so close you could hear the wonderful sounds of the ocean! The only thing I would have changed was to not be n the ground floor, but other than that the room was perfect. The buffet's were my favorite, for breakfast in the morning we would get our delicious omelets and fresh fruits and just about anything else you could want, the tables viewed the ocean and several times we saw whales and dolphins!! AMAZING! We booked a zip lining trip through the hotel and it was one of the best experiences of my life! I highly recommend this trip...but be prepared to do a lot of hiking up the mountain! We also did a whale watching trip that was amazing, it was about half of a day out on a nice 3 story boat and they provided lunch and drinks...it was an amazing experience!
I had no experience with the spa on this trip but it looked very nice and others from our group said they enjoyed it. The food at the restaurants was pretty good, it just depends on what you get, but overall good. I would love to go back here, next time with some friends or my husband! I highly recommend this place and the all inclusive is just amazing, you feel like royalty! If you can afford an ocean view, go for it! but if you are on a budget I wouldn't pay the extra! We had a wonderful view and could still see the ocean in the distance, and just a few steps outside and you were already on the beach!
