Please, VT from Vancouver be fair with your review. I can't imagine that you went to the same place that we did. We have been going to Mexico for 12 years now (five star resorts too) and this one ranked in the top. I would have given this resort a wide berth if this poor review had come out before we left. Please people look at the grammar in that review, I think this lady is afraid of seniors and maybe a little PMS at the time.!!!!. Yes, there were a lot of golfers that come to this resort from Califormia but the groups that we met were absolutely charming. Should you expect the hotel to entertain your children after 7pm? If you take children you could kayak on the lagoons, take a bike, hike 15 minutes to the beautiful little bay to the left of the property. Take a 2 dollar ride to Barra. Heck - put them in a free lifejacket and snorkel in 35feet of water. They'll never forget that one!!!!
1/ The pools and gardens alone should be enough to please anyone.
2/ We also paid a very, very reasonable price to travel from Vancouver but the room we had on the forth floor was immaculately kept and I am super fussy - believe me.
3/ The food was fine. Breakfast was fruit, yogurt, meat and cheese plates, a station to cook eggs, bacon, sausages, cereal, juices and 4 mexican dishes. - You get the picture.
4/ If you go with a group, the all inclusive is actually 4 a la carte meals per week. The other evenings the buffet was varied and we enjoyed pasta one evening and chinese food another evening. At the buffet there was always a fish or meat and vegetable station.
5/ We enjoyed the circular area outside the main bar. It was a lovely place to sit and have a special coffee.
6/ Hi to our special friends from Calgary. What a fun pair!!!
