Unfortunately we're having a bad time here from the first day of the visit. Our first bad experience was just after check-in.. The butler had no idea where our room was. After our 15 hours of travel to reach the hotel, we were extremely tired. And the butler took us to every building in the area (!) because she had no idea where our room was. Finally i checked the paper on hand and tell her where it should be! Her English was very bad and she was keep saying "OK" and "sorry" . After a long tour we finally found our room. And there were other surprises waiting us. There were no slippers in the room, and i asked for them three times , but still there is no slippers in the room. And in the minibar menu it's been stated that there should be Beers, but there wasn't.. I asked to lobby to fill the minibar as it should be, and thank God they sent someone to do it! Then we went to restaurant, they inpolitely showed us the worst table in the restaurant, i said i want to sit somewehere else. And she told me the restaurant is full! even if i saw a lot of vacant tables. Yes i ignored her during the rest of our vacation..! Because i didn't pay for this kind of treatment!! The other issue was, restaurant was unreasonably cold! We were shaking when we try finish our meal! Yeah, lets talk about internet a bit! Oh sorry which internet? We were suffering while we tried to find a place which has a wifi signal. Because inside of the room, there were no signal for free internet! If you want to use internet properly you have to pay, like you didn't pay enough for this Luxury(!) Hotel !! And the organization?! Here it is! There is an information board in the lobby area. It's been stated that there will be some shows. Maybe you want to attend? Ok then let's check the board. Oh what's that? There is no information on information (!) board. You will have to ask it to someone if you want to attend the show..I'm so sorry to say it but guys, this is not Luxury! If you think it is, you have no idea about what the Luxury is..!Note : Don't forget to take a look at the pictures i've added..
Nice resort if you just want to relax. Nice to have the option of staying on the adult only side, or going to the adjoining larger resort. The beach is beautiful, worth a walk all the way down to each end.Plenty of space to lounge and be close or far from others.Food overall was very good. I thought the buffet food was actually a bit better than the reservation only restaurants. Activities were spotty on the adult only side, but well-attended and fun at the larger resort. Service was very good, friendly and attentive! It was almost like Disney-level service.Small daily tips to housekeeping, bartenders, staff, and they remember your name and are ready with extra towels, etc. This resort is about 50 minutes drive from SDQ. Easy access.
This vacation was with our three grown children, their spouses and our youngest granddaughter. This an honest review based on our experience.The grounds are very beautiful and well kept. No weeds anywhere to be seen. The ocean is brown, and we knew this before we came here so we can't complain about that. We had read numerous reviews before going so we were prepared for the best and the worst. Most reviews are spot on. The food is average I would say for an all-inclusive. We have been to over 25 resorts and it compares with most of the rest. Our least favorite was the Rodizio restaurant.The staff was outstanding. We had the most awesome waiter the whole time in the buffet. His name is Emerlyn (not sure if it is spelled right). Always filling our coffee, mimosas, water. Great service and needs to be mentioned. Joel in the pool bar always ready to serve. Our maid Nelly was amazing. She cleaned our room thoroughly every day and put the towel animals up. Always kept our refrigerator stocked.Animation team so much fun. We LOVED Melvin (aka Cappucino).Overall we had a wonderful trip.

If you want to get dysentery and a bacterial infection, come here. Each person who traveled with me is sick to this day and we left the resort a WEEK AGO!!!! I've never been so sick in my life. The way the resort handles to food resulted in all of us getting dysentery and a bacterial infection from god knows what. DO NOT COME HERE!!!!!!
