“Gorgeous place to have a great time with the family! The place and the food is terrific and the people is so nice and kind! You always find something to do!” – Pedro V. 8/17
“We had a lovely holiday. Food was varied and plentiful. Favorite restaurants were the Mexican and Italian. Enjoyed the adult pool with its beautiful view, but loved the salt water pool on the beach.
The best part of our stay at the resort was the staff. They were attentive to our needs but more important very friendly. The wait staff in the Mexican restaurant were so much fun. Fancy coffee. Amazing guacamole made at our table and crazy jokes. A big shout out and thank you to Guillermo at the salt water pool. He was so kind and personable. He worked very hard all day to keep people in drinks. We appreciate his efforts and his friendly manner.” – Jeanne Jennings 8/17
“First time visiting but I am so ready to go back! Spent a week there for a friends wedding and I absolutely loved the ambiance. The service was great from the staff at the adult pool and hotel taxi drivers. Only downside was that room service wasn’t 24 hours and the restaurants although there’s plenty of options don’t stay open late. At the sports bar we received EXCELLENT service from Emmanuel every night we were there. He actually made it a point to find my husband and I to wish us safe travels given he wouldn’t be working the day we departed. Talk about showing your customers YOU CARE! The beach was beautiful not too much sea weed and definitely NOT CROWDED unlike neighboring beaches we visited that were rocky and extremely crowded.” – Veronica R. 7/17
