I went as a red level guest in an ocean view room, it had a Jacuzzi on the balcony. Upon arrival at 12:30am, we were greeted by a pleasant receptionist. There were no food or bar places open! We could not get a drink or welcome drink, we got some sandwich boxes brought up.
The jacuzi did not work (new motor), a light didnt work and fixture was coming off the wall and a floor tile was a little loose, other than that everything seems fine and nice.
We bought some beer at a local supermarket but were not allowed to take it into the room, we had to sneak it in a suitcase in the end, there seems to be two factions, security and hotel staff, where things dont always get along.
Passion food was below average, dried chicken, asian place was better, Italian also wasn't bad.
We had two cloudy days and 3 sunny days. pool was great and the beds were nice (at the pool). Drinks were strong, tad expensive though, sea temp nice, very calm water.
Free breakfast was great on days we made it, free drinks and food 5-8pm were also great, local beer or wine/champers.
All in all not bad, would come again if a cheaper deal, 2800 for 6 nights + flights from SFO was a little expensive.
We rented a car and driving was sometimes a pain as the signs are not that great. But we drove to the food kiosks, from the airport to hotel, to the waterfalls in the rain forest and the bio-luminescence lagoon (best trip by far).
