Second time to this resort (Went four yrs ago). Things are much the same as previous trip (did not seem as full).
Pros: Beach is beautiful (best we have been to at a resort) Tropical paradise.
Staff attitude is second to none ,Customer service took care of problems quickly.
Good variety of drinks, A la cartes were good, restaurants were clean. Buffets were efficient,,line ups short.
Cons: Resort is aging ,Rooms are dated. Hot water,plumbing and electrical issues for us.
Notes : Bring your favorite condiments(ketchup etc) in packet form to eat with your meals.
Let customer service know if you are a returnee (benefits).
Lots of loungers (on beach a peso will get you them moved setup and wiped down .
Bring tissues in small packets for excursions.
In Cuba : We talked to the staff ,guides etc and some goods are expensive ,hard too get.
Clothing ,shoes, shampoo and toothpaste, gum and pringles are good to tip with and much appreciated .
Had a great vacation because of 1/ friends and family 2 / weather 3/ resort
