My elderly mother and I spent two weeks at this hotel at the beginning of December. Overall the hotel was great and we had a fabulous holiday. On the down side the beach was relatively small and I would recommend beach shoes. We spend our time at the beach so this was important to us. A plus side on the beach is there is drink service.
I was amazed at the great service that we received throughout the resort. We regularly tipped but I think they gave great service to everyone. The hotel rooms were very nice with the exception of the hard bed and terrible pillows.
We avoided the large buffet for meals whenever possible by going to the coffee shop for breakfast and booking the restaurants. Nothing wrong with the food at the buffet, just prefer to avoid the large groups of people. The Brazilian and Japanese restaurants were our favorites with the Mediterranean being our least favorite. We also enjoyed the Steakhouse, Cajun, Italian and Mexican restaurants.
The lazy river and the pools were also highlights.
This is a huge resort so expect lots of walking. There are also carts available to take you if you don't want to walk.
We would definitely go back depending upon price but would take pillows and lower our expectation on the beach. We have also stayed at the Barcelo Mayan Beach and would definitely recommend their beach over the Grand Sirenis.
