Just back from two weeks at Las Hadas .
I may stop giving this place such a good review because last year when we arrived it was just the two of us when we checked in this year it was 8 couples getting pretty busy .
First the flights and Air Transat
South bound had a 1 hr delay for deicing other than that and the seat I sat in meant for a 3 year old it was a typical charter flight , Best thing I can say is that they didn’t need the jaws of life to get me outta my seat and we were 40 minutes early coming home.
Las Hadas is still a great place , quiet and under capacity sitting at around 20% so no beach vampires or pool ghouls , mostly fellow Canadians with a nice mix of local people .
It is older but extremely well maintained , this year there was a ton of mosquitoes in the room and on the property , not sure if the rain before we arrived had anything to do with that or not .
No jelly fish at all this year must be a warm ocean current thing swimming in the ocean was great nice and clean water ,it was cool but refreshing on the hot days .
Food was marginally better this year had better beef steaks and the A La Crate menus were good but never changed unless you count the theme nights .
Legazpi is still a slow place to eat ( 3 hours ) but good food and ambience ( except for a couple of guys in baseball caps) really baseball caps and fine dining ?
Went kayaking one morning and had two dolphins right beside us for about ten minutes really something .
Took the Thursday sunset cruise , good deal for the money lots of booze and entertaining a great way to see the bays for $45.00.
Went to Melaque and Barra De Navidad as well , Melaque was uh interesting, not a whole lot to see and do but Barra De Navidad was nice and we will return there on our own without the tour group next time.
The Transat tour guide drives to Melaque opens the door and says one hour go shop , well shopping there is not that good and there is really nothing else to see so a bit of a waste , Barra De Navidad we did some research on and took a boat tour while we were there and took in the sights as I said we will be back .
As for Las Hadas if you are considering staying here …you will have to sign for everything as some people are all inclusive and and some are not plus the dreaded wrist bands .
Overall a great place older property but stylish unlike the newer cookie cutter hotels , clean spacious not for anyone who has mobility issues as there is lots of walking uphill mostly and on cobblestone walkways .
Service from everyone was great front desk , bellman , bartenders and maids and servers all friendly and much appreciated .
Will we go back …..depends if a lot more people start going then no but if it stays like this then more than likely very relaxing vacation .
Picture was taken of a sunrise off the balcony of our room .
