Great trip! Flor has been just amazing with my baby! My baby is 7 months and would go crazy seeing her and laughing with her! She is very helpful and has an amazing personality ! She is great with the kids ! Every day we were excited to see her ! Junior also was very helpful from the elite collection when we first came in and explained and showed us many things around the hotel. The waitress that we had for oregano and in lolita’s was beyond helpful and attentive. I believe her name was Susan but I can’t fully remember ! Great music from the DJ also! We had a great 5 days !

We stayed here for 5 days. Big area, room was nice and clean. Several pools, bars, 4 restaurants plus beach bar which is open all night and even offers food at night, all for free - fantastic! The food offered in the restaurants and the buffet were always superb, to high standards. There is an additional restaurant directly at the beach with a beautiful atmosphere at which we had a wonderful exclusive lobster menu - 4 courses including a giant lobster and Champagne for 50 $ per person, well worth the money. If you like good wine the housewines for free are not a choice (as to be expected at all-inclusive), but you get a good selection of decent wines at fair prices from around 20 $. The only downside we experienced was too many people offering services like pedicure, massage or selling things of all kinds at the beach. They disturb you every few minutes and won't leave at a simple 'no'. Best of all was the service, which was very friendly and highly professional. Special thanks to Fernando, Justino and Willi who made sure we won't forget our time here! If I was ever to open a restaurant I will definitely ask you to work for me! Fantastic job - thank you! Overall we highly recommend this hotel. We will certainly come back with the whole family!
