Stayed for one week Feb. 27th. Short ride from the airport, which was a bonus and what we look for in a vacation spot. Arrived at hotel around noon with about 3 other couples. I have to say I was slightly disapointed that they did not have a cocktail waiting for us. All our past trips, cocktail and sometimes a cool cloth is waiting for you. I don;t know if is was because only a few of us were arriving or not, but it is a nice touch when they start off welcoming in that way. That being said, we were pleased that our room was ready, bonus. Rooms were average, nothing to write home about, this not being top priority to us, don't spend a lot of time in the room.
Food was really good, always had a good variety and presented well. We always like to try out the ala cartes. Itallian was really good, try the chicken. Cuban was ok, the mousse is a must try, it looks like a chocolate Easter Egg. International, was a nice experience, different. Everyone was served the same menu, a sampler menu. Very small tastes of eveything on the menu. Was not aware of this before booking, but enjoyed the experience. I was not wanting the lobster, they brought double of the beef portion for the main dish.
Beach, was very good, narrow beach, I enjoy being close to the ocean. Nice walk to the right along the beach. Walking to the left you pass by the Sol hotel, cross over a road to another beach, much different looking, deeper beach, not as many people there.
The resort is a small resort, not a lot of walking, you are close to everything.
Staff were very friendly and very attentive. We noticed the manager was very hands on with his staff, not so much with the guests, that we saw. He has no worries with his staff as they were all doing a great job.
I would reccomend this resort, and would return one day.
