Booked the Regina Grand through Olotel booking site. I had never heard of them before so wasn't sure if my reservation was good since the price was ridiculously, but olotel reviews were ok and I thought 75 bucks was a low risk to take. We arrived at the Grand, unloaded and were told our room was at the club...downgraded but still had a jacuzzi room. Checked in...asked for a room with a fridge ( even willing to pay extra for one) and were told there were no rooms with refrigerators available. Unfortunate since we were expecting a room with a fridge and had stopped at Mega for a few supplies. Fortunately we travel with a small cooler and filled it with ice to keep the perishables from stinking up the room! The room was nice enough, although somewhat dated, a nice view from the jacuzzi tub but no balcony. We went for a walk around the grounds, and I soon discovered that I wasn't in as good shape as I should be for this resort! Lots and lots of stairs...no elevators...concrete roads link the concrete buildings and you soon look forward to the golf cart type shuttles that will drive you around the resort. If you have any mobility issues at all...don't stay here! The views were great looking out over the beach and ocean, and hearing the crashing waves was lovely but being surrounded by so much concrete did not give me the tropical feeling I was looking for. We went for happy hour just outside of their restaurant...2 drinks 25 USD (good thing they were 2 for 1...banana daiquiri was delish and service was good. We then had dinner at La Viajra restaurant...the meal was OK (84.00USD) service was good. Had tomwalk all the way back UP to the lobby though when our cardlock key didnt work after the first time. The next morning we went for coffee at the neighbouring Westin and paid 20USD for 2 coffees (bottomless with tip). Quite disappointed there was not a coffee maker in the room. It is my understanding that this resort is largely a time share property and so we were a little surprised to see the signs forbidding you to take your own beverages to the pool or beach, since many time shares tend to be somewhat self catering. Also pretty sure the front desk could have provided us with a room with a fridge since the whole resort seemed very empty. Internet to your room was extra cost again (or free at the lobby). In conclusion our 75.00 room, while it was a bargain in itself and much nicer than any 75.00 per room hotel anywhere in Canada, this place can get costly in a hurry. The location does not make it easy to leave. We had rented a car, but by the time we walked all the way back UP to the lobby and got the valet to get the car, and then drove back to San Jose or Cabo it just didnt seem worth it. Indeed after talking to some other guests it seems to be common that guests arrive and don't venture far. It just seems to be inconvenient. We decided to take advantage of the jacuzzi (the water is unbelievably hot....Be careful)! Didn't put the plug back in after draining the tub and there was a large cockroach on his back in the tub the next morning. i have been to mexico enough that they don freak me out anymore but still dont like seeing them inside. Before we left we had to pay our 10 usd for parking...I paid with a 20 and had to provide my drivers license of which they had to photocopy so they could make change...which btw came in pesos. This whole process took about 20 minutes. They said it was because they had to do the currency conversion. All in all, glad we stayed to check it out but won't return. I feel we had better value and a better experience this time last year at the Royal Solaris in San Jose.
