WHAT A LOAD OF NONSENSE! Try as I might, this place does not serve the top shelf, all-inclusive drink in a coconut! Yeah, I mean once you get past the sheer beauty of the hotel (guess I missed the peeling paint, bugs and murderous bloodstains) the excellent staff and the more than tasty food, this place is a total let down. Seriously, why did they build right of the coast and then have the audacity to put stairs from the resort to a beach you can't swim in? I place the full blame of me not being able to safely swim on the hotel management. They should add sand bar or something. OH and don't get me started on the weather. The sunrise was incredibly distracting; I was just trying to rest and the bright red skies would just pour into my ocean view room. SO ANNOYING!
In case you're thick, are seriously lacking a sense of humor or don't speak English very well you haven't picked up on my sarcasm. This place was amazing. The hotel, specifically the rooms, are immaculate and stunning. True, you can't swim in the water just at the end of the resort, but if you go into the pool, its basically the same without the prospect of death due to riptide. Granted, we didn't try the spa and didn't try to leave the resort (see: State Department Travel Advisory and everything was free as the the resort), but I really didn't see much reason to. Canto Del Mar is your traditional French, four-course meal with big plates and little portions. The food was very well done. Vista Bellianas (sp?) hosts the best breakfast buffet I had in a long while and trust me when I say I know my breakfast buffets. Spice is good if you are into the fad of "sushi" and like "fresh fish". The fellas down at the pool will serve any drink you can think of and few that you can't (aka Hector Special). There is plenty to keep you busy in the hotel and a walk on the beach is also very nice. If you see my new friend Leo down at the mansions near the Westin, tell him I say, "Hey bro".
Now down to brass tax (Cockney slang for facts). Past reports, as well as pictures, do the place justice for beauty. You CAN drink the bottled water with the ice as they have purified their own water. I accidentally took a swig in the shower on day one, but avoided a nasty visit from Montezuma, so I'm sold on the validity or either their system or my stomach. The pool was nice and although not crowded during our stay, we were able to claim a prime spot. I would recommend staying here and more then likely will again. Here's hoping they finally get some coconuts to serve a drink or two in.
