We stayed for one week October 28 - November 4, 2006. It was our first time in Mexico. R DeCameron came highly recommended to me by several people that are repeat clientele, and it was easy to see why. The service was very good, the staff was very friendly when approached for assistance. There is such an array of food at the buffet restaurants that if there is something not to your liking, there must also be something that is! Our absolute favourite of the al la carte restaurants was the Italian - it rocked! And the guacamole at the Mexican was to die for!
I had read reviews here beforehand and tips like 'take your own mug' and 'take your own washcloths' were not very clear so let me say this....taking your own mug will likely save you trips to the bar as your mug will probably be bigger than the plastic cups that drinks are served in, in addition will keep your bevy cold and save on some of the waste with all those disposable plastic drinking cups! In the week that we were there, housekeeping left washcloths in our room only twice...not sure of the reason behind that but the reason for the tip became clear!
Comments in other reviews about tables being cleared a little 'too efficiently' may be as a result of the amount of litter the guests leave lying around. The staff has to be that efficient to stay on top of it. I was pretty disgusted with the guests in that regard...the amount of drinking cups left on the beach, or beside the pool - often with an untouched or barely consumed drink in it was appalling! Really! how much effort does it take to drop your glass into the trash can?? And if you ask for it....drink it!!
The entertainment was really good, very enjoyable - just remember to take your camera! We forgot and missed out on getting some nice pics - their costumes were beautiful!
Kudos to the staff - they handle ill mannered, arrogant guests (and we witnessed a few) very diplomatically, and were very friendly otherwise - making it a very pleasant stay. Will I go again? absolutley - watching for deals already!
