In total we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can highly recommend to families, couples, friends.
chique boutique style resort with daybed and lounges, very modern, however bit dated and in need of an upgrade. Just changed ownership and is going to be upgraded now,
situated at one of the best beaches with swaying palm tresses, bordering a river and a marina.
Main and general areas very open, spacious and comfortable. Lighting very romantique with lot s of candlelight. Two restaurants, one main upstairs with more pricier food ( heavenly Mahi Mahi)
bottom one at bar and beach and pool nice general food, sandwiches, great pizzas and some salds and fish. Kids menu exceptional with meat and veggies apart from usual pizza and fish and chips. very affordable as well.
whole pool area and layout as well as gardens spotless clean and lounge chairs and hammocks.
we had one wedding while we were there and the whole thing looked very romantic beachside wedding, extra beach restaurants with lounge furntiure open towards the beach and river.
Rooms are in two wings at each side of reataurants, either facing the ocean or the garden/parking. By all means, if you can get the ocean view..much better and also always a gentle breeze, while garden side very stuffy and no air is moving. They seem to have an internal grading of rooms, the ground floor ones being the worst, and better the higher you get up. Three floors in total. we moved from groundfloor to first floor as I was not happy with ground floor. No bedside lamps, safe not attached to wall. Bad smell etc. First floor, although same category had bedside lamps, safe was attached and they even had nicer cups. (?)
They supposedly have very nice penthouse suits, which are basically the second floor of one of the wings, however cannot be booked for children.
rooms are quite soundproof, was pleasantly surprised by this. Large flat screen TV and marble bath,however just with shower, that seemed to overflow a lot.
worst thing was the beds. Never slept on a worse mattress I think ever. Still recovering from the back pains and I never had back pains before. they seriously have to consider the mattresses in upgrading.
Howver that was really the only bad thing.
The staff is incredible, very friendly but not pushy. seem to immediately accept you as friedn or family and have your well being in mind. In many other resorts, you feel like a walking dollar sign or plainly ignored. The staff of the Pearl really makes this resort. hardly ever felt that safe and happy anywhere. especially since this time we left my husband at home and travelled just with my two, very pretty young daughters. No bad and seedy looks. Nothing. Just plain friendly and interested. Very impressed! Especially Maria, Save, Aquila from the activities were incredible. Also Ben from the restaurant!! Thanks so much guys and hopefully we will see you again very soon!!
They also have a wonderful gym right at the beachfront, amazing! And a wonderful spa, we visited almost every day. Prices are good and the girls wonderful, massage was very good and we had pedicures, feet massage, breading and eyelash tinting , all very professional and recommendable.
They had daily activities for rain and shine, and it kept us busy. however they were never obtrusive. It is a all around very pleasant, thoroughly enjoyable holiday and we will be back ( however with cushions, pillows etc>
Can recommend for anyone, also for weddings.
ocean view and higher up, second floor bring your own cushions
