Once again the old Club Intrawest now Embarc did not disappoint. The change in the management of the group has not had a negative impact on the service or resort itself. The manager has not changed (thank goodness) and her staff have had little turnover. The biggest change with the staff that I noticed is their english, its even better....

I visited this resort with a friend and it was a wonderful experience! The facilities, service, day trips, recommendations etc were all top notch! Met some wonderful guests down in the pool! If you go be sure to attend any turtle releases, market to table dinner by the beach and do not miss bugle hour! We also arranged wildlife tour,...

What more could I add? Oh, very comfortable loungers right on the beach. I did the cooking class which included a trip to the markets. This was an interesting addition to the week. Nice to have a guide for the markets. I feel I could go back on my own now. Overall, the staff here is probably the best part...

Beautiful property with amazing service. The staff there, including the manager Marie, could not do enough for you. Very friendly and personal. The units are clean, open and most with amazing views. Lots of stairs as others have said but truly we didn't feel it was anything negative, it is so beautiful that you don't even notice all the stairs....

Amazing view from the higher rooms, great pool and beach front, restaurant fab for breakfast and lunch, and an amazing manager Marie. Poolside food and drink service were a favorite of my family. Super friendly staff. Easy for non-Spanish speakers. A family-friendly place definitely. Need to be in shape though, lots of steps. Not for those with mobility issues. There...
