My partner and I traveled down to CRT the first week of March. Our stay was outstanding! I don't think I have a single complaint. I read a lot of the reviews on here before booking so I thought I would just try to add to what some others have said already.
-There are no "ocean view" rooms. Honestly, I preferred it this way because the beach was so much more beautiful when you didn't turn around to see a bunch of balconies. It also means that all the rooms are pretty much on equal footing so you don't need to worry where in the resort you are staying. It's a very easy and short walk to everywhere.
-The size of this place was smaller than I expected but I really felt like it made it feel less crowded.
-There are a lot of Italian guests but I selected this resort for that reason (hoping it would mean the house wine and food were a little better than places that cater more to Americans and Canadians. FYI, I think I was right). There were a lot more English speakers than I expected though based on other reviews. I would say at least 30% of the guests were English speaking if not more. I'd put Italian at around 50% and the remaining were French, German, Russian, or Spanish speaking. The staff at CRT are so multilingual it made me jealous, so I didn't find that it was an issue for us.
-The food is pretty decent. The tapas place is by far the best (and has a martini bar) but it fills up quickly so be there when it opens at 6:00 if you want to eat there. Everywhere else we had no real problem getting into regardless of the time.
-The beach is perfection! I had heard horror stories of other places where you had to be on the beach with your towel by 7 AM if you wanted a chair. Not the case here! You could wait until 10 or 11 and still have no trouble finding a great spot. I noticed the chairs around the pool were all pretty much spoken for by 9 though so keep that in mind if you'd rather avoid the sand and waves.
-The guests are older than I was expecting and with all of us in our early 30s, we felt like the younger crowd. This wasn't an issue though since we picked this place to avoid the "spring breakers." If you want a lot of nightlight you might want to look elsewhere though.
-This service and all facilities at this place are incredible!
-This was the most relaxing vacation I've ever had and we can't wait to go back.
