Stayed self-catering 6-13 October.
Hotel is in a great location around 300m from the lovely Amodores beach. The rooms are fine, spacious and they were cleaned daily. Pool was clean and well maintained. We didn't eat at the hotel as there are many fantastic and cheap restaurants to eat at along the beach or in Puerto Rico around 20 min walk or 5 Euro taxi away. Also a useful mini-market in the hotel itself or a Spar shop 100m from the main entrance.
From my dealings with them the staff were all helpful and friendly although I see others on here do not feel the same way. My 2 cents worth would be to try and attempt a little Spanish(it is their country after all) and smile when asking for something or maybe leave a tip once in a while even if you are All Inclusive.
The pool was really nice and there were plenty of sun loungers although Lots of young children(school?) running wild the week we stayed.
The hotel bar caters for All inclusive so we avoided it for the most part. I heard shrill screams from the pool area on Karaoke night although it could have been two cats fighting just the same.
So to summarise. Go self catering for as cheap a deal as you can get and eat out in the evenings. Use the hotel as a base to go to other areas/sights. You don't really need Air/con in October- March, but do get a safety deposit box. I Wouldn't really socialise in the bar unless you're all inclusive or like the tasteless beer before closing time at 11pm. Try smiling at the staff and maybe a word or two in Spanish for a more friendly response.
If you want your room cleaned, leave the' please clean room card ' on door handle.
