The room was big and comfy, the premises were wonderful. Very nice staff and very nice beach and pool area. Prices were descent, and affordable, not cheap but not expensive. Th only downfall is the food is good not great, and let it be known they have a lot of bugs, not the hotel but the overall area. Found ants in my room and a beetle, but the area is very lush so not too much different from Hawaii in that sense. The internet was down when we went, that was a bummer, but if you are looking for a secluded very chill place with beautiful scenery, this is the spot.
I stayed in the two bedroom condo #402 overlooking the ocean which was absolutely spectacular. it is owned by Lance and Jeremy and they were absolutely awesome anything we needed they would get for us the condo has been remodeled it is absolutely beautiful . If you are looking to get away for a week I would highly recommend this beautiful resort which has golf, tennis ocean 🌊 pool and spectacular sunsets 🌅
I spend a few days in Estrella Del Mar from 12/27/19 to 1/2/20 to celebrate New Years !!! Sadly it was very disappointed. This place used to be my favorite place in 2017 but now everything change They have a very young management team and the lack of Knowledge is something else !!! . Don’t take me wrong the place is beautiful . And that’s why my concern the hotel and the entire property have a 5 star rating ! But the customer service and specialty Food and Drinks management service it’s terrible not even a 3 star !!! Food is average and expensive ! The worst I ever taste for a “4.7star place “ Restaurant La Paloma supposed to be gourmet dinning or fine dining !! Don’t even bother please !!! The bar average ... very poor selection of bourbons , whisky or whiskey and wine !!! They just don’t have the minimum idea !! On the other hand the next big disappointment was the “New years Gala Dinner “ OMG !!!! Shame on you !!! So many celebrities that night like Nacy Nash , Peter facinelli to mention some ! The buffet was average and nasty but the salad was good ! Which cost me a $150 dlrs ... I thought the hotel was going to represent a real And delicious food diversity’s from the pacific !!! And the best they did was spaghetti with Ragú sauce and dried fried mini shrimps ... Again such an amezing place !!! For a very poor management that is not in same level !!! I do want to mention that I speak with the foods and drinks manager about the “Gala Dinner” about how was possible that people were wearing Bermuda shorts ,sandals , t shirts and even hats ... in a New Years Gala Dinner and his answer was even terrible! We changed at the last minute because the people who leave here call us and told us that they don’t feel like to dress for Dinner . Woooooo so we the tourist or customer who pay for a Gala Dinner don’t count ? And he say it is what it is !!!! I will never come back to this place again !!! Shame on management it used to have a great service and delicious food back in 2017 ! …
Our family did the sea turtle sanctuary and absolutely loved it! Lifetime memories! Wonderful excursion. 10 out of 10 recommend! We were there in December so we were able to “let our baby turtles go on the beach”. They were gathered up for their safety and released that night (so they wouldn’t be bird food) 🥰
There is no way to explain the wonder of Estrella de Mar, but once you drive in the main entrance it all starts to make sense! The manicured land scape and golf course are breathtaking and unparalleled. It is a gated, safe, fun and beautiful place to bring your family. In 16 years we have never had or heard of anyone having a bad or unsafe time. Minutes from the airport with 3.5 miles of beach and a fabulous 18 hole golf course on the ocean.
