We have travelled quite a bit and this resort is a very close second for us. As others have already said, the Food - Very Good, the Staff - Excellent, the Pool - Very Good, the Beach - Outstanding.
A few comments, the buffet while small was very good, the bars around the pool could have been open a little longer, chairs (like most resorts) can be challenging and could have had more on the beach, the beach we were told by the staff (and I hope I have this right) is reviewed by an Australian organization that checks cleanliness and eco responsibilities. This beach is ranked #1 in the world as the longest cleanest beach. 880m long and 35m wide. The beach must be certified twice a year to keep this accreditation. The elevators are a problem but will be repaired in May 2014.
La Fusion restaurant across the street from the resort was very good. Casa Elvira (been around since 1956) in Zwhat was our best meal, look for Milton, great guy, great food. We did our own thing and went to Las Gatas, met Orilio at El Macamba restaurant very, very good. Milton and Orilio are friends.
Zip Lining was fun, but at $55 a person, a little rich as a tour. I would try to do our own thing for this next time.
Would we go back....YES!
