I want to give a sincere review of this resort so here it is...........I stayed for 6 days returning on 7/22/14. Check in took about 20 minutes after they explained everything and our bags were being carted away to the room. It was four of us and we stayed in a family deluxe room. That was a mistake only because if we wanted to sleep in, the kids were splashing and playing in the pool..next time we are in the adults only section!! The room was as pictured, room service was ok--we did have to request wash cloths but we received them promptly so no big deal--WE WERE ON VACATION!! No time to stress small things!!
The restaurants were ok--I had no problem at all booking dinner reservations for every night we were there. I didn't book when we checked in but I did the next day and I had NO PROBLEMS!!
The buffets were ok. Food was good and not bland to me. I felt the variety was good and it didn't bore me. We ate there almost every day for lunch and once for breakfast. Hoyo19 was great for breakfast and lunch and Seferino(i hope i spelled his name correct) was awesome!! Such a gentleman(very handsome too!!). He made sure everything was perfect. The only complaint about the restaurants is El Coral. The seafood was horrible...but the staff was great!! The Japanese restaurant was our favorite and the Steakhouse was a close second. But I have got to mention my favorite person Rudy Aquino at the Coco bar(i think--it was the swim up one) Not only was he so very attractive he has a great personality and so much fun. Every day he saw me he waved or kissed me (on the cheek) like we've known each other for a while. I would recommend this resort to anyone. Friends with children or without--We had a ball........
We went on a Catamaran excursion with Power Adventures. Snorkeling and scuba diving....with fresh fruit, drinks, and Mamajuana!!! We went to the natural swimming pool and partied there!!! We also went to club Imagine for my birthday. The dancers were great, beautiful bodies, drinks were flowing...nothing bad to say!!
Overall if there was anything to complain about--it was immediately brushed off because it was taken care of immediately. I really appreciate every staff member I encountered. I am planning a return trip as I type!!
