My girlfriend and I have traveled a lot and the last thing we want on a trip is an experience we can get just about anywhere. Popa is most certainly not that. The resort was beautiful and unique, the staff members were very friendly, laid back but always attentive, and know how to make a mean cocktail. There are many excursion/activity options, but there is no pressure to take advantage of them. We later spent a few days on Caranero Island so we decided to just stay put and enjoy the beautiful pool and surroundings of the resort.
We were initially wary of an all-inclusive resort since they can be pricey and cookie-cutter, but after coming home and reviewing the money we spent, Popa was almost as cheap and a much better experience than most of other places we stayed in Boca. The resort was very nice yet not over the top. And man! The food!
We couldn't recommend this place any more.
