We have been to Aruba a few times, the Dominican a few times, Jamaica once, Cancun a couple of times....This resort is the BEST we have seen. It was our second time here.We stayed April 18th-26th.
We stayed in Room 5419. Great view of the Ocean and Pool. Our Butlers wer Raymond and Dwyne he they were awesome. We tried to make dinner reservations for the first two nights by email, but they never got confirmed. Raymond took care of this for us and Dwayne made the rest of our reservations for us.
ROOM: Awesome. Very big. Spotless. We asked for maid service at 9:00 am each day and the maid was there promply at that time. Turn Down service was very nice also. The Balcony is gorgeous and big and a great view. Our Butler kept our bar stocked as we liked it.
FOOD: Buffet for breakfast was very good. Omlett station and eggs cooked to order daily. Good variety of food. Lunch Buffet was also very good. A good variety of meats and pasta available.
Our Favorite Restaurant was Surf and Turf. SASHA is the Best server ever! We ate there 4 times and loved it everytime. The Scallop appetizer is to die for... We ordered the Filet and shrimp each time and it was great. The French Restaurant was our next favorite. They had a good variety.. Lamb chops and filet very good. The Italian Rest. was our next fav. We ordered ravioli ( which were good). The Japanese rest was good, but our lest fav. We did not eat at the buffet for dinner at all.
DRINKS: Very good. They had Red Stripe, Red Stripe Lt. and Heineken. All top shelf liquors. Our Drinks were never empty because the service is outstanding.
POOL: AWESOME. We are pool people. At 7:00 am you can get Towels and find chairs. If you want a float, ask for it then The shade spots go pretty quickly, but we like the chairs in the sun so we got the spots we wanted daily. We never felt crowed because of the size of the Pools. There is a swim up bar in 1 pool, an activity pool (volleyball, basketball, etc.) and a quiet pool ( which we really enjoyed). Service around the pool was fantastic. You never went long without a drink.
BEACH: We walked the beach a couple of times. It is good size, but not very big. Thats fine with us because we enjoy the pool area much better.
ENTERTAINMENT: Great. This staff works so hard and puts on great shows at night. There are also bands there on certain nights. They are real good. The lobby bar also has a saxaphone player, piano player and flute player on some nights.
STAFF: These workers bust their butt to make you happy. Everyone was always asking if everything was ok, or if we needed anything else. They provide activities during the day (if you want to participate). They are not pushy... If you do not want to be involved a polite no thank you is fine.
There is so much more I can say about this Resort, but I tried to hit the main parts of it. THIS RESORT IS AWESOME. We will be going back again next year.
One thing, these workers work real hard...a few dollars goes along way. We tipped at every dinner and when we were brought drinks. We felt the workers didn't expect to get tips, but were very appreciative when they did.
If you have any questions feel free to ask me.
