We spent 4 nights recently with 2 other couples. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. The pool
area and beach were very nice and the service people were some of the most sincere and
friendly we have ever experienced. We especially liked Mataeus (sp?), the Argentinean, bartender in the Essensia lounge. He was funny and charming and the ladies found him adorable! The guys liked him because he made good drinks and was more than happy to
joke back and forth with us.
You do need to be aware that they have a lot of additional charges. We paid for the rooms in advance but, when we arrived there was a $14/night resort fee and a $35.00/day valet fee.
In addition, they wanted to charge us an extra $75.00 for early check in. We declined. Also,
as with most every where we went, there was an automatic 18% gratuity added to everything.
I guess you get what you pay for and overall this was a wonderful hotel!
