The food is good, can always find something to eat.
The rooms are large, the refrigerator was restocked.
The common bathrooms are far walks from the pools, restaurants and bars.
There are no coffee makers in the room
The mattresses are firm, not hard. The view from all rooms is breathtaking especially at sunset and enjoying the afterglow as well.
The wine is drinkable, but not as good a swallow as wine spectator would note, but then go buy a good bottle..........
The drinks are fine, if you call for Bacardi, Smirnoff or Cuervo. They are just not strong. The hotel probably does not want to deal with drunks............
Go to Tino's in Punta Mita for dinner at sunset. The food is wonderful and the view is picture postcard.
The help is not indifferent, just new to their jobs and still perfecting their system. Also some guests just cannot wait their turn, making it difficult to wait for drinks. Oh what a dilemma!
Would go again, but I would bring my travel coffee pot.
