Just returned after spending two weeks at this amazing resort. On arrival at the airport we were quickly processed through customs etc and on to waiting air conditioned bus. We were greeted at the resort by staff and cocktail drink. Our check in was very quick and were offered a meal but chose instead to go our room. We were driven by electric cart to our room in the 400 block and our bags were carried to our room by our driver. This resort is beautiful with lush vegetation and numerous pools connected by cascading waterfalls down to the swim up bar and activity pool and almost to the long stretch of white sandy beach. We spent time at most of the pools as each one has its own charm. Food quality and variety was never an issue. Our favourite places were the buffet restaurant where we had breakfast each morning overlooking the pools and the ocean and lunch which we most frequently had at Don Bartello (open 24 hours/day). We also enjoyed the Cuban restaurant near the beach, the beach bar for a burger and the Italian a la carte restaurant.
There were no shortage of bars and the lobby bar was a favourite where after dinner each evening we were treated to very talented entertainers including a wonderful pianist or vocalists.
Overview : staff, gardeners, bartenders, entertainment people were always helpful and friendly. Yes, there were many steps but we came home in much better shape as a result and yes, there were mosquitoes but we sure grown them bigger in Ontario. Management was wonderful and continues to upgrade this resort. We would definitely return to this resort!
