Apart from not being on the beach, this resort truly raises the bar.
We had never been to such an elegent resort. The staff truly go above and beyond when compared to other resorts we've been to.
Getting to the beach is very well set up. There is a large golf cart that is available 24 hours a day. The PRIVATE area on the beach is excellent. Menu service on the beach was amazing. What ever you wanted was yours.
We thought we would get tired of the resort food as we were there for 12 nights however the menu changes daily. We ate at the steak house at the sister property for a change. Looking back we found the food, selection, quality and service was above the sister property (which is where the beach is).
Take advantage of the excursions. The city/country tour to the Tequila factory was great. The way Tequila is made from the plants grown, to the specific geographic area was very interesting.
The staff at the "Quinta Fona Chelina" were super, they answered any and all questions, as well as explained in detail how tequila is made. We purchased two bottles of flavoured, very very good. Nice family run business.
We did the evening sail, swim with the dolphins, and catamaran trip.
You will be treated like royalty by the staff. Get the fresh salsa and quacamole, with taco chips. Nice snack for the pool.
The tapas bar at the top was breathtking, sunset was unbelievable.
And for us Canadians, they had TSN on the TV's,(including the lounge, just ask) you read it correctly TSN !!!! Jay and Dan in the morning.
I had never been to any resort anywhere, in Cuba, Bahamas, Dominican republic, or anywhere in the USA, that had TSN. Hats off to the resort for that. (TSN is the Canadian version of ESPN, not that I don't like basketball, bowling or tennis, but Hockey is nice to see)
You wll not be dissapointed.
