We chose the all inclusive meal option, the only way to go. Two of our dinners were at Vento. We had Emmanuel as our waiter both times (he was the reason we went back the 2nd time).
The food was superb and Emmanuel was able to make recommendations based on taste, portion size, etc... Every recommendation he made was perfect.
If you stay at this resort, make sure to eat at Vento, and ask for Emmanuel.
The resort is beautiful. All of the employees are extremely nice and helpful. Betsy really helped us to switch rooms, as we were assigned a lagoon view (aka parking lot), on the first floor with a king bed, but we got reassigned to the high floor ocean view with double beds as requested.
Pillows need replacing, and bathroom fixtures need some repairs.
The beach is pristine, with very few vendors harassing us, which is a pleasure.
