Everything was amazing in our stay! We arrived on the 8th August to scorching hot weather and it rarely changed to the day we left! We we're in a group of 11 people but we never had any delays in the restaurants or breakfasts. Over all fantastic! Would definitely go again!!!

I'll first say the ONLY reason I didn't give 5 stars is that our room was soooo hot especially at night...when we notified the front desk, they sent an extremely polite young man out to take a look, and he climbed up in the ceiling and took the filter out and cleaned it, came back to check it again, and...

We paid for the Hacienda upgrade which included a private check in/check out area, free airport transfer, and a private breakfast and lunch buffet. It also allowed you to select your own room.
