If you want a feeling of having your own private resort you need to stay here! There are a limited number of rooms available at Loma that all provide the feeling of a private condo or penthouse rental.
The unit we stayed in had two good sized bedrooms and one smaller room that would be fine for a child. The two bigger bedrooms each had their own bathrooms with hand tiled showers. The bathrooms were also spacious and were a pleasnat surprise for what we normally expect. There was an open spaced living area including a dining table, breakfast bar, full kitchen, and living room with flat screen tvs and a dvd player. We had a nice balcony over looking the pool and amenities with a shade. Everything was clean and seemed well maintained.
We went in off season and the staff may have been scaled back. There was a day we had the entire pool to ourselves! English was definately a second language at the resort but it was manageable.
There is an open air restaurant and our food was decent, priced reasonably from what we experienced in Town. Service was slow but hey, you're on vacation!
This resort offers high end spa treatments including a salt pool and hot and cold underground showers. I did not attend these but spoke to people who did and all seemed to enjoy it.
The resort is not on the main hotel strip but it is within walking distance if you take the mostly paved route along the resorts golf course. You can also get a golf cart ride to the beach from the resort although the resort's reserved "beach" is very small and sometimes already taken over by the locals! We found we were able to easily avoid a taxi ride into Town by taking the golf cart to the beach and walking a short disctance to the public beach access which leads directly to the main road and landed us right in Town - near the Super Mercado and several good places to eat and shop.
My only complaint would be that the back of our room shared a hallway with a maid's closet and they would start very early in the morning and talk VERY LOUDLY!
We got a great package for air and hotel - but it was the off season! I went with Family but would love to go back for a romantic getaway with a loved one!
