We stayed here 3 night just before new year and booked with Hotels.com. We must have been given the worst room in the hotel with a balcony and view of the car port and golf buggy parking right at the front of the hotel. Room 328 room is right next to the main entrance and the constant arrival and departure of vehicles to the front is a real annoyance , the balcony offered no privacy and we had to keep the curtains closed most of the time.
The room furnishing was nice and my review would have been much better if the location of our room had been different. I honestly believe that the hotel should not even rent out this room as its a disgrace compared to the the rest of the property.
The rest of the hotel is beautiful, entrance area is huge and airy, the pool area is also very nice, with a computer that guests can use. The beach is a bit of a disappointment as the sea has a lot of seaweed and entry into the sea is not easy as you have wade through the seaweed and shuffle to avoid getting stung by stingrays - i didnt try it.
The marina area next to the hotel has a small supermarket and also the fantastic Azul Marino restaurant. The food here in my experience is much better than in the hotel and is great value. I would happily eat at this restaurant for my entire vacation.
There are also a couple of other restaurants in the marina area which offer variations to what the hotel can provide.
I would consider staying here again if we had a different room as the overall experience and surroundings are very restful.
