Individual guest reviews

  • Great location, beautiful Country and the hotel was very clean and well maintained. Fresh guacamole and the steak house were an a, the reception staff were fantastic, water was dripping from the light socket above the toilet. Pool towels were provided and changed as often as you liked, the food was amazing. Plenty of choice and the al a cartes were good, beer served was dos equis and hubby was happy about that, we returned to Asian as was lovely.

    Our room was awful smelly.

  • Pool area was nice, beach was gorgeous and the food in the hotel was great. The buffet in the main lobby building was by far the best of the buffet choices, staff were helpful and bedroom was spacious, cleaned every day. Maids gave us fresh towels and lunch was similar, breakfast was just something else.

    No light in the shower and bad wine.

  • The reception area is awesome and it’s only a 5 minute walk and its much cheaper. This place is very nice and the staff from housekeepers to waiters to bartenders are all fantastic. The guacamole in the lunch buffet is amazing.

    The most uncomfortable hotel bed i've ever encountered, the steak house is absolutely amazing, the Asian ok and the Mexican not the best, the water is not just blue is turquoise.

  • The location is good and probably the best beach I have ever seen. The hotel itself is lovely and the staff are very friendly and cant do enough for you. The rooms are comfortable and functional, breakfast is awesome and most evenings are themed.

    The beds were downright awful, oh and the sheets were stained, the pools were pretty nice and not too cold.

  • The location is great, beach is gorgeous and really fantastic stay, totally enjoyed and will go back one day. The house stuff is not all that good and the lobby is very impressive. The staff are extremely helpful and hardworking, that water color is incredible. The drink strength really varied based on the bartenders.

    This hotel and its three other close partners are awful, our shower didn't drain well at all either. The Cuban gin is undrinkable and the pool is badly in need of repairs.

  • Great place for the price and an amazing beach. Some staff were just unprofecional, the rooms were large and the food at the buffet was always plentiful and good. The pools were pretty hot.

  • Great hotel for the money and negotiated a good price. The beach is amazing, the bar and entertainments staff worked tirelessly to keep up amused and happy.

    No comfortable bedding, the swimming pools were dirty.

  • The location of the is resort is perfect, the beach is beautiful and for the money this hotel is brilliant. The service and staff are absolutely wonderful.

    The rooms, as stated in previous reviews are dated and not very comfortable.

  • None of the rooms have an ocean view was a little disappointing, the beach was gorgeous and the hotel was fantastic, staff very accomidating and helpfull. Service was quick and efficient, the beds were two double beds pushed together to make one big bed. Pool bar was great, the food was fine and the cocktails were good especially the tequilla boom booms.

    No hot tub.

  • Great pool area, beautiful beach and all the staff were friendly and helpful in all parts of the hotel. Again the service was good, the rooms were clean and the buffets were all very nicely done as well. Asian was nice.

  • Theres 2 pool bars then another 2 bars near the entertainment area and beautiful beach. Good place to stay and private homes. Lobby large and colorful, very friendly staff. The rooms were comfortable, food was great and desserts, fresh fruits, and cheeses were excellent.

    The beds felt wet due to the high humidity.

  • The pool area is much quieter and the grounds are very pretty, the beach is fantastic and the sea is beautiful and warm, the hotel is in a great location. The staff is awesome even you do not see alot of tipping and drinks are good.
