Spent five days at this resort with my family which consisted of three people.
The food is of good quality here and the rooms are clean and freshened daily - which includes restocking the mini bar with a few sodas, beers, and bottles of water. Overall, the staff is quite friendly which enhances the experience. I wish the restaurants had more flexible times to eat, but considering there are five of them on the property, it is not too much of an inconvenience. El Dorado was easily among the best even though its kitchen had a slip-up the night we went and it took them over an hour to get us our food (which had been sitting under the warming lamps for at least 20 minutes prior). Thankfully, however, our experiences at the other restaurants were better. Grille Del Fuego is the other I recommend. I had the salmon which was well prepared and served hot.
In addition, this property works with Alamo car rental service and Swiss Travel Company, both are located on property and have been reliable thus far.
Overall, I would recommended this property for shorter stays. If you are anything like my family, we don't like the same scenery/food for TOO many days at a time, so five days was plenty for us and that includes two guided tours and one half-day trip to coco beach on our own.
