Just returned from our 8th visit to this wonderful resort and once again feel so very fortunate to have been able to go there again. We travel with Air Canada Vacations each year and their arrangements are always impeccable, although travelling on Air Canada flights continues to be a trial.
As usual we enjoy the all inclusive at this resort because the food is excellent, the service professional, and most of their restaurants are al a carte, but it came to our attention from the AC Vacations rep on site , that the hotel management is changing up the access to the al a carte restaurants in the future, only allowing access to each once during your stay and having the remainder of your meals at their buffet..
WE FEEL VERY STRONGLY that this would diminish our holiday and certainly hope that they will reconsider this change. We love spending our days on the beach enjoying meals at the beach patio and drink service on the sand all day, served by accommodating and gracious staff who welcome us back each year with hugs and smiles. Actually, we are greeted warmly each time we return, with recognition and warm welcoming service. The staff remains the same from year to year, loyal to their employer and doing their job with pride. The pool is beautiful and beautifully maintained as are the grounds everywhere.
It needs to be noted that there are a great many stairs and long walks to get around the property...these we find to be an enhancement but could be a deterrent to anybody with a physical handicap.
Sunset at the lobby bar is an every night event and never fails to excite. They could consider entertainment on nights other than the weekends though.
The Architecture is inspiring but the maintenance is not keeping up with the wear and tear that tropical climates impose. We hope that this will become more of a priority in the public spaces as well as the private.
a bonus this year was free WIFI in our room....much appreciated
In previous years there had been a "turn down" service so that our towels were freshened.....it never happened this year and we found that disappointing. As well, we accidentely discovered that the tip we had left for our maid, disappeared from the room before she got there....disturbing since we were told that only she had access to our room.
The weather was yet again, perfection and 2 weeks in Paradise once again, the jewel of our winter.
