We arrived Thursday March 25, after leaving St. Louis with warm jackets and snow flurries. What a relief to land in a warm climate, get whisked through Customs, hassle-free and put on a tour bus to our hotel. The resort is CLEAN!!!NEW!! Fresh drinks await you. Staff at the check-in counter especially Darling, were very friendly. There was 14 of us and althought we all couldn't get rooms very near each other the first day, they made sure we all were accomodated the next day. Our rooms were always clean, fresh towels, min-bar with Presidente Beer, bottled water and various soda flavors. Each room had a welcome basket of fresh fruit and your own bottle of Rum. The entertainment at night was not Over-the-top, but really different. The Disco was cool! The Casino was small and not worth throwing money away.
We all had a ball on the Beach, sometimes to the point of "we should have been Cut-Off" LOL! Everyone is issued a wrist bracelt to show that you are staying there, althought you can use the other side of the Resort. There are no children allowed on this side, a bonus for all of us 40-60 year olds. The entire staff would anticipate our needs and amazingly they would appear with fresh drinks. The food was Diverse at the buffet. There are Reservations needed for a few of the retaurants, so I advise you to make Reserv's. as soon as possible. My husband and I are still wearing our wristbands and it has become a joke among the rest of our gang to see who'll lose their's first. We are all going back, same time next year, with more people (jealous) who have seen our pictures on Facebook. The best part of being from Missouri, is the locals LOVE Albert Pujols and the Cardinals, so we got along very well! The only drawback...slick flooring doesn't mix with wet clothing and lots of alcohol! Walk gingerly around the pool area, and on your terrace when getting out of your hut tub/jaccuzi.
