Excellent service. Rooms are dated but very clean. Cleaning staff are very friendly as are all of the rest of the staff. We were treated royally. Our room looked over the garden and sitting on the balcony was very relaxing. The pools were kept very clean.

Beach and rum is the same in expensive and budget hotel. Food in Barlovento ? I did not see anyone hungry - Air conditioning works well. You'll save 1600$ on 2 week vacation in comparison with Melia Peninsula. Good place for adults
