Stayed at this resort from March 22 - March 26th, room 2302, very large room overlooking the pool and sea. We had the mini kitchen with fridge, sink, 2 burner cook top and microwave. Room was large and very clean, (no mold to be found). The noise around the pool area was a little bit loud, but didn't bother us too much. Lots of locals and kids there, it was spring break.
The Pros: The Staff were so good to us. (we did tip often and treated the employees with lots of smiles and respect as they work very hard to please). A HUGE shout out to Manual and Angel at the lobby bar!! Best ice cold beer and popcorn. Lots of shots of tequilla!! :) The snack bar at the adult pool, wonderful. Eddie kept us very happy with wonderful nachos and drinks. The location of the resort is nice and quiet. Buffet food was OK, go early for breakfast to beat the crowds.
The Cons: The only thing we did not like was the whole "receipt" thing. We are at an all-inclusive and wearing a wrist band. But everytime we ordered something, they had to print out a receipt and we had to sign it!! Not too bad at the lobby bar, but there was not a printer at pool and snack bar, so if you ordered something, it took forever because they had to go back to the lobby to the receipt!! I've never had that at any all-inclusive. Management needs to change that.
A MUST DO: Take the ferry to Isla Mujeles, rent a golf cart and go to "Captain Dulche's Beach Club". A great place to eat and hang out at the beach. Seeing the island by golf cart was a blast!!
We would recommend this Hotel to anyone! Yes, the room walls are thin, but most hotels are! Treat the staff with kindess and tips here and there, and you will be treated like Kings and Queens!! I would return and stay at the Holiday Inn Arenas again!!
