We just left Mompiche a couple of days ago and having been at other resorts this one I have to say needs a little work.
Here is our take:
Check in manager could be a little nicer smile a little more.. She isn't one to just greet you welcome you and so forth... She instead gets to the point and done. Doesn't make you feel too welcomed (my impression).
Hotel room gorgeous! Everything modern clean rooms are big.. But get ready to walk a lot if you happen to have rooms in buildings 10 18 and so forth. But we didn't complain we liked the walk. We had a room with ocean view. Outstanding view!
Pools clean fresh and slot of them they werent overcrowded which is sometimes an issue in some hotels..but not this one I believe they have over 5 pools.
Food, though we only had buffet meals they lacked variety. Literally one bar of saads one bar for fruits desserts. One for soups (2 choices) and the main course only have 5 choices. Other resorts win big in this section. The service in restaurant lacks interest. The staff need to tend to the clients a litle more they only came around once. In the morning they would come to us and offer coffee or hot chocolate they would serve and we would never see them again. During lunch they would come by with water and that was It. I would expect them to check in on us every once in a while to se if we needed soft drinks or juice.. Nope not them we would have to get our own drinks. But they were quick to pick up plates.
Pool side snacks, almost close to none. Pizza, hamburger, hot dogs.. One day they actually had nachos. But you can't eat it by pool.. You have to eat it in designated area.
Drinks they were ok. I would have to tell you piña coladas lack the icy part that makes it drinkable. It's literally a juice they throw some vodka in and there.
Entertainment A +++ they are on every night and they are fun to participate in and or watch though a little late they start at 10 pm. But you have the karaoke room, game room, movie theatre, bars, clubs that keep you busy other times. The hotel offers many other things to kep their guests busy so in that area great!
Beach while in the am this a big strip of beach area right by the grounds by 1 you have to make sure you eithere know how to swim or not go in at all waters ar rough unless you take the short boat ride across to the other part of the grounds and enjoy the beach on that side which is quieter, whiter sands, wider beach area. And before I forget the trip to the hotel is pretty long you should be prepared for bumpy roads and a long ride.
Again I have Been to many resorts and this is a good hotel but I do think they need a little more to make it great! Which I'm sure they can! If you aren't a member be prepared to be hounded by the sales people I quickly told them we belong to another chain and I had RCI as well but thanked them for trying. Before I forget wifi is5 bucks for the hour and transportation is 25 from Quito not what they quote you via phone or email.
