The hotel is a little of a stretch from the airport but once we got there it was worth it. We arrived quiet late, well early the next day to be specific but reception was well staffed and we we allocated our rooms very quickly, We ordered dinner at reception and it was with us in the rooms very shortly after we arrived. The hotel is far from new, however it is very well maintained, we were a little concerned by the age of the room, however they were very well kept and clean, not a maintenance issue in sight. The beds were a little hard for my taste, but thats just me, I adjusted quickly.
The first morning was great breakfast was impressive for a hotel with only about 250 room, it seemed to be able to squeeze allot into the restaurant, infact more choice than I had seen in much bigger hotels. The restaurant is not large and the hotel was full but it never seemed overcrowded, from time to time you wait for 1 or 2 people in front but never a long line for even the most popular things. Inside did seem to be more of a squeeze, but why in August would you want to be inside anyway. The trick seems to be they have a consistent flow of fresh food coming in, rather than pile it high and replace only when its empty as many hotels do, they seem to be working to keep the food fresh and looking good.
The hotel is set back from the beach with a small hill (very small) to walk over, and then your in the pool complex and down to the beach. The beach is good, the restaurant near the beach has a great bar next to it and we spent most of our days migrating from the beach to the pool, via the bar. The food in that bar was great, there is also a restaurant at the top of the pool complex (cant comment didn't use). There is a small but perfect gym and a very very nice spa. We didn't use any of the services, the beach and pool along we the open part of the spa was enough for us.
There was plenty of things to do, the animation team was good, always encouraging and working hard to get people involved, but doing it without being a pain. They were really good and the yoga, aquarobics and pilates being highlights for us.
All the staff were helpful and very friendly, in fact more so in the smaller Verde than the bigger sister Hotels of Golf and Serenity. You can use those facilities also if you stay at the verde.
We were there for 10 days and only spent one in the sister hotel (gloria golf) there is also the serenity, looked nice but those are large hotels with lots of time lost traveling around. We did check out the restaurants in the others and they were only marginally better than ours.
We only felts the small size in the last day or two as the entertainment started to cycle around. Seems they expect people to stay 7 or 8 nights only. SO if you staying more than 10 be prepared to be a little bored at night
In closing I would stay here again, and one day we might but we also like to try new places, so if this is one of your options and your staying less than 10 nights go for it you will be happy with your choice.
