tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Jerica J :
spring break with friends

We loved this resort. I traveled with 5 other girls, ages 22-24. We had an absolute blast. ROOMS: Our villas were 46 and 47, which were fine. We didn't have the greatest view, but we asked for rooms close together so that was our only option. The rooms were very clean. Our fridge was stocked with beer and water, but was not working. We also never asked to have it fixed, so no complaint about that. My only complaint was that the bed was hard as a rock. I usually don't complain about things like that, but I felt like I was sleeping on a cinder block. FOOD: The buffet food was above average. I have stayed at a lot of all-inclusive resorts and this one has some of the best food I have had. We also ate at the snack bar, which was good. The snack bar by the beach is open late (until early morning), so it was perfect to grab munchies after the disco. Two girls in our group had the Mediterranean restaurant and enjoyed it. If you want to eat at an al a carte, book before you go. There were very few reservations open for the Japanese restaurant so we never got to go. POOL: we never hung out at the pool on our resort, but it was clean and big with a swim up bar. We always took the transit to the beach pool. Hugo was our favorite bartender. A small tip goes along way. Chairs fill up fast, which was okay with us because we spent most of our time in the water anyway. We were always able to find at least one chair to put our stuff on. There is also a kids water park but we never went over there. BEACH: the beach is beautiful and very clean. There are tons of chairs by the beach. There are lots of people though. I am sure I am forgetting stuff, but we really enjoyed this resort and would be back. This resort is far from the ocean, but they have shuttles that run every couple of minutes to bring you to the beach. If you are wanting an ocean view room, you should spend the extra money and stay at the grand bahia closer. You do have to pay for your safe, which is $4 a day. I read some reviews about issues with the language barrier. I speak very little spanish and was able to communicate with almost all employees, language barrier was not an issue for us. Bring $1 bills for tips and a mug for your drinks.

Huge resort over crowded beach !

This is an over extended resort. There are 7 resorts that share the beach and chairs are practicaly staked on each other . To get a nice place to sit you must get to the beach before 6 oclock in the morning not my idea of a vacation ! There are signs that say you cannot reserve chairs but we witnessed chairs with towels in best locations wich stayed vacant all day. The staff in generale were very nice but language barrier should be addressed. I must praise most of your restaurant staff for bending over backwards to please once they understand what you are asking ! The rooms are very nice and cleaned daily very appreciated . Entertainement was very good . Food was good but not up to par with other resorts we have stayed at, but the Capricio was the best on this site. I would recommend this resort for family oriented vacation.

Only go if with the Kids

Went here for a bachelorette trip. I don't know why anyone would book this hotel for a bachelorette trip, since it is full of kids, and cheap foreigners with their families. We went through a travel agent, and I am flabbergasted at why she would book us at such a crappy hotel. If you are looking to stay at a place like a motel 6 then stay here.The food is absolutely terrible! It is the worst buffet food I have ever had, and the alcohol that is included is all sugar. It's like drinking kool-aide with cheap vodka added to it. By the second day, I felt sick After eating buffet food for the whole first day, we had reservations for the next two days, which weren't much better. We wanted to eat at a hibachi table, and they said they were all booked up, so I went to another concierge who got us a reservation right away. When we showed up to the EMPTY restaurant, we were told that the hibachi tables were all booked. We were dying for food that resembled reality, so we sat down and ordered off the regular menu. The "SuShI" that they serve is something I can't even describe, I don't even know what I was eating. Then I ordered an appetizer of spring roll and it came with a bunch of fried things on a small plate with one little piece of spring roll. The next day we ate at the steakhouse, and the steak was sub-par. I never expect much from a buffet- all inclusive, but this place was beyond acceptable. After that, I just ate bagels from the buffet every day until we went home- which is another odd thing because all they have to go on the bagel is plain cream cheese, and then cream cheese with sausage in it, and some kind of meat like ham in it...gross. Even the oatmeal is weird. They add some kind of cream to it like condensed milk or something which makes it sweet, but when your stomach hurts from eating crappy food, and you just want some plain oatmeal to feel better, condensed milk doesn't help you out.Even the ham they serve to make a sandwich with at the buffet is gross. It's like cheap grocery store ham that we get here for a 1.99 at Walmart.The customer service is good, but that's not any reason to visit a place, because customer service is supposed to be good anywhere you go.The excursions are expensive, but were fun. We did the zip lining, and party boat. The zip lining was 12 zip lines, so I guess we got our money's worth due to the fact that you get to go on 12. 9 short ones and 3 long zip lines...a lot of walking and climbing, so if you aren't in good physical shape, don't attempt it.The highlight of my trip was that party boat.We paid 800.00 per person for this trip. I feel it was a rip off because we flew from Fort Lauderdale and only stayed three nights. I could've gone to a regular hotel that isn't all-inclusive and ate delicious food and had some places to go party for less than that or even equal to that. If you are going to choose an all-inclusive resort, please make sure that the food is good, or else it isn't worth it. I am a foodie, from South Florida, but I don't eat a lot, so when I do eat, I like for it to be good. I would have rather just paid for my food and ate something edible than spend money on food that is disgusting, and drinks that are full of sugar.

Huge resort, great for kids, beach a bit far

We stayed in resort next to the kids pool and it was pretty quite and fun for kids. Food was great and lots of restaurant. The carribean on the beach was the best. Pools are not overcrowded except the one by the beach. Beach is a bit far to walk but nice to loose few calories. Fast service and would come back.
