I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel again and it was by far amazing like the first time, but with a twist.
I will go over a few details I believe people should know when looking at staying here. The grounds for this hotel are simply amazing, they do a wonderful job ranking the sand and maintaining the landscape several times a day, this goes for the beach as well. The hotel is now all-inclusive, however it is not as all-inclusive as I had thought, so be mindful when booking, I will cover a few issues later on.
The room was amazing, I went with the Terrace Suite with plunge pool and while I stayed in a normal suite last time, I would of almost preferred the normal ocean view suite again. I will cover why later on.
The last time I was here they only had 2 places to eat, this time around they had added a sushi bar, a mexican restaurant and a pizzeria on the beach. We ate at every place multiply times and it was amazing, the food was good sometimes great, but all in all it was great food and a wide selection, even covered my picky nature. The room service was also great!
Some Pros, the hotel is 5 star, the service and waiters/waitresses are amazing. They really go above and beyond. The beach cabanas are the way to go, so you do not have get up super early to try to snag a spot on the beach or next to the pool with the bar. While you can reserve the beach cabanas at $45 for the day, it is well worth it, even though the hotel is all inclusive. The room was amazing, very clean as last time and the little touches such as fresh strawberries or custom pastries was to die for. The liquor in the room and at the bars was top shelve and included in the price, which was nice. The bartenders where all amazing and Lydia the beach concierge was amazing and ensured our needs were met on the days we stayed in the beach cabanas.
Some annoyances, not cons: When booking all-inclusives you assume that ALL of your liquor or activities are included, this is not the case, and while I do not mind paying for it on site, I would prefer to know ahead of time so I can plan accordingly for example as mentioned above the cabanas on the beach ranged from $45-$65 for the day, you can arrange dinner on the beach at night but for 105$ a person for 4 star cuisine and it goes up from there. Bottles of wine at the restaurants ranged from $40 dollars and up, which again doesn't bother me, I just wish they would raise their price when booking and I do not have to worry or sign for every bottle of wine I order. They also offer a bonfire on the beach for $200 for up to ten people, which I found odd but again, I wish these things would of just been included in the price and the price raised. The last annoyance was we booked the plunge pool terrance however the plunge pool was extremely cold and they stated they would only turn the heat on in December, no big deal, however I would only get this room again if I was staying from May-August as I feel I would of use it then, however it was too cold, we were unable to use it during our trip. Since the room layouts are almost all similar I would choose just an ocean view suite or pool side suite if I stay outside of that time frame.
Overall it was an amazing trip, I am just disheartened on the all-inclusive set up as I have stayed at other 5 star all-inclusives where I didn't feel they where trying to nickel and dime me.
Alex and Geo did an awesome job serving us, Alex was on the beach and Geo was the nightly bartender at the main bar inside the lobby. Christian was also amazing assisting us when we arrive assuring we had the top shelve liquor on our rooms as well an additional robe.
The trip was great and this hotel is amazing, just be mindful of the things listed above when booking so you can budget or plan ahead of time.
