Our group of 4 older ladies stayed here on Jan 23 to the 30th.
After reading some of the reviews posted recently, we were leery of travelling to this resort...but, WOW, we were pleasantly surprised!!!
I would have to say that this resort is one of the cleanest, safest and, thanks to an amazing staff, friendliest I have ever stayed in! During the week I was there, I didn't hear any negative comments by any of the people we met.
The restaurants were very good. The buffet was plentiful and had lots of variety. (I loved the self-serve wine taps!!!...lol) I realize that the hotel was not at full capacity while we were there but they didn't cut back on the quality or quantity of food.
We loved the pool and the beach. Because the area we were in (13B) was not full, we had a bit of a hike to the main lobby for the first 4 days but then they opened the snack bar/bar on the beach closer to us and we were thrilled!!!
I really can not say enough about the staff...FABULOUS!!! It didn't matter who worked there, from the reception desk to the gardeners, everyone was pleasant and helpful. Not once did we feel uncomfortable or ignored by anyone.
A special thanks to Elizabeth and all the bartenders at the lobby/pool bar who didn't over pour our drinks..to the day time Manager who was so helpful, Maria our maid, and to Hipolito, the Air Canada rep, who WAS available when he said he would be. I am sorry I don't remember all the names of the staff who were good to us, but when I close my eyes, I can see their faces.
Would I go back??? in a heart beat. Thanks to all for a GREAT vacation.
