We were greeted by Mario, the Hotel Public Relations Manager, with a bright smile and warm welcome! He is very knowledgeable and speaks English wonderfully. He can assist with just about any issue that may arise during your stay, don't hesitate to ask. The pool and pool area is spectacular, gorgeous even, I know, no ocean but after we settled in we did not even care...tranquil and serene...birds, greenery and the flowers! Best pic's ever!
The room was huge even to American standards, the bed was really firm, not upset here as my back and my husbands NEVER hurt the entire time! The bathroom was better than expected, Great shower...Clean room, Clean sheets... The maids were excellent and efficient, always a "good morning" and we even came back one day to a gorgeous flower arrangement on our bed...how romantic!! The decoration of the room was sparse but we really were only there to sleep. Not many rooms with balconies so if that's a must ask them, we did, and got a nice one.
Service: Excellent! Always served with a smile! We hope you get to see Elene L., a server, she is friendly, attentive, energetic, and always going beyond to be helpful. The Hotel Manager, Mr. Baldehar Alvarez, was friendly and funny, he assisted us whenever he could. :) Thanks!! We were lucky to have Mr. Huber assist us as well :). And a 'BIG SHOUT OUT' to the Bar Tenders here, especially Senior Daniel E. Awesome Job keeping us plied with your superb beverages! Try a Long island they are very good here!
So, what's really THE BEST about this hotel? The food prepared by Chef Dagoberto! He rocks, this Chef would make Anthony Bourdain happy! We were lucky enough to have him prepare his Master Pieces especially for us for Lunch....Nothing ever tasted So Good! (Check out the pic's!)
Thanks Guys we will be back!
PS Travelers: A little tip $ often ( to say 'Thanks') goes A LONG WAY!
