Our travel dates were 6/20/08-6/27/08. Our party had 9 travelers. Check-in was smooth. The timeshare person invited my wife and I to a "free" breakfast in return for a "short' presentation. She was very nice to us as she was giving us our bracelets for the hotel. But as soon as we said we were not interested, her face changed from being nice to being "you've offended me". They did not bother us once we made it clear to them that we were not interested in their "free" breakfast.
Many of the previous reviews mentioned construction noises. We did not notice any construction noises. We barely noticed any construction going on unless we looked at the golf course view. We had two rooms, same floor, but one had the ocean view and the other had the golf course and construction view.
The food at the resort was very expensive!! We managed to save a bundle of our budget by going to Walmart to shop and stock up on groceries. We had a lot of money left to purchase gifts for our families back at home. I would totally recommend people go this route if they are looking to save money.
The staff there were wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were very spacious.
The pools looked very clean, but if you pay close attention, it is actually dirty. There were stuff (dead bees, dead insects, and other small trash floating) floating in the pools. The pools were very open and we had no problems finding seats or areas to swim. Be careful about swallowing pool water accidentally. The wave pools were nice. The lazy river was awesome. The ocean was great. I noticed that the shoreline on the beach was a bit brownish in color due to a close-by rivier flowing into it. The beach and pools were quite a trip. If you don't mind walking, then it should not bother you. But I recalled a couple of times when we reached the beach and looked back at our rooms, the thought of the travel back to the room after a long day of exhaustion from sun bathing was not fun.
The peace of mind we got was priceless. I've been to the Flamingos del palmar and I would rather return to that one. Don't get me wrong, this was a very nice place and I'm glad I was able to experience it with my family.
