First off, we went here a year ago and wrote a review about our experience at that time. They unfortunately got off on a premature start and had many hurdles to overcome. Well overcome they did! We had the most wonderful experience this time.
The place has always been exceptionally beautiful. The rooms are elegant, comfortable and well appointed. You want for nothing. We had a one bedroom suite that was just a terrific time to come back to each day. The wonderful housekeeping staff had the room clean and fresh each by by about noon. Full kitchen (although if you have all inclusive you won't need to use it as the food is very good, more on that later). Two full bathrooms and washer/dryer combo which we made full use of.
Last time the food was lacking dismally. This time, wow. We made use of each restaurant and were not disappointed. Favourite was Hiroshi. The chef Juan Carlos is obviously very gifted. I LOVED the food there. They're lucky to have him. The staff at all the restaurants seem to have pride in their work and are happy to be accommodating. Lovely people and they deserve a tip. Do so generously. Adrian at Davino went the extra mile, saw I was shivering at dinner outside and brought me a wrap. He is a wonderful warm man, I was happy to make his acquaintance and hope to met him again.
They now have shuttles into town which they did not have before. Very nice touch. Saves a lot of money back and forth to town and they were quite punctual, clean and convenient. One to both major malls (quite expensive places and not much to buy for the average joe).
One plus I would suggest, walk to the right out of the gate and ask to get into the gates of The Beloved resort. The guard will let you in to look around. It is a beautiful (long) walk. Take sunscreen. Lovely iguana and bird spotting along the way. Worth the "snoop".
Lots of young families with kids there (we did not travel with any) but it is extremely well appointed for kids, safe, and accommodating, not a place to go if you are a partier or want a kid free environment.
All in all, I was sad to leave. I would whole heartedly endorse this place. Go! Go now!
