Stayed here for 3 days/3 nights. Entire place was painted pink for upcoming television filming 🤦🏼‍♂️ Room keeping poor, pizza chef AWESOME, most bar tenders agreeable and hard-working. Making dinner reservations poor, not great food. Won’t go back for the price.

Thank you for your visit and constructive feedback, we hope that you had a nice journey back home and to have the pleasure of serving you again ensuring you in advance of our best intentions at all times. Cordially, Laura Ramos | General Manager

Hotel's Favorite
Our 2 favorite wait staff, Oscar for Breakfast and Lunch and Cesar for dinner. Oscar was always that smiling face with amazing service, who not only remembered our names but remembered us from our stay here 3 years ago. Cesar made me feel at home every evening for dinner. His service is top notch and he was kind enough to help me with my Spanish, teaching me new words or phrases every evening. The two of them helped make our stay her amazing. They made us feel like we were family.

Great location and layout of hotel. Staff polite and friendly minus the POOL BAR STAFF ON SUNDAY. Room was great and clean with a perfect view considering I got caught in Hurricane Nore August 28, 2021. My only regret was the quality of food at the hotel. it was Blah and not a big selection that goes together.

Average resort recently repainted with pepto bismol pink. The color of the building was am eye sore. We also had water leakage problem in both bathrooms in our room was never addressed. They had no entertainment or board games. Food was mediocre. The best thing was their premier lounge and staff Marco Garcia, Iveth Garcia David Rodriguez and Oscar were the best. They attended to my son's food allergy needs and were superb. The pools were nice as well. I think what they have going is their staff so hopefully they are compensating them well.
