We had bought this all inclusive package not knowing what to expect since the past reviews were not great. Well we had an amazing time there. Yes, we stayed in the hotel.... Not the villas and it had an amazing view. The food was really good, way better than any cuba's hotel we ever stayed at. The buffet was always fresh and the food always hot. The animation team were very funny and the girls at the reception (Taiga) was so helpfull. Jose at the restaurant was making us feel like home. We took a 2days tour with Hotelbeds, Sunwing, WOW!!! Tony was our guide and we had a blast
I truly don't understand all the people complaining about this hotel... yes they do eat rice and beans, but you don't have too! There was plenty of other choices... Yes the hotel doesn't look like the RIU but who wants to stay in a cold cement building in Costa Rica!! Canada could learn from them for trying to preserve wildlife and environment!!
Would I go back? For sure
