My husband and i traveled here March 24-31st/14. The hotel was great!
We have stayed at more extravagant resorts, but for the price we paid this was excellent.
Food was fresh and hot with many choices. I was told that there were updated rooms for an extra $40 per night, but we chose a non updated room. It was super clean, and everything was in good working condition. Fridge was stocked and fresh towels daily.
I found the beds on the hard side, but the pillows were great. Always had hot water.
One large pool in center of resort, it was ok until a lot of kids arrived. We had a hard time finding a quieter section. Lots of chairs available. Pool bar could be larger, often a long line up.
Beautiful grounds that were well maintained. Everything was in short walking distance no matter where your room is. Specialty restaurants were ok, nothing to get overly excited about.
Beach was beautiful but it would be nice if someone was cleaning up the grassy seaweed that kept washing up in certain areas. Great location close to city, just a short bus ride (which you can pick up every 15 min just outside resort for super cheap)
Great gym with AC and lots of windows and mountain view.
We had an excellent time here and would highly recommend this resort!
