Hotel as for me is 3 star.Hotel needs renovation. In the lobby, the plaster dries down and places on the head.Food was ok.Rooms clean.Big and nice beach.Pillows in the hotel room stinky and sweaty,it was replaced after 5 days of complaint.The refrigerator once worked another day did not work, despite complaints nothing changed.The restaurant service was very slow, we were lucky as we got two coffee breaks.Quite often lack of fries and ice cream for children.Mini club for children, not very good. Mini disco sometimes only 15 minutes. Baby station was good.I do not know if I will return to this hotel again.
The Vacation was ok.. Nothing special for the hotel and the restaurants and "special" dining was less than expected at a Mom and Pop diner!! Transportation was really one of the highlights.. They got us to the Hotel.. and back to the Airport, although that was dicey too!!.. The Biggest problem was the Hard sell for the Privilege Club and then finding out the little hidden clams.. the cost is suppose to be for a week at their hotels based on the membership purchased.. COME TO FIND OUT.. that is ONLY for the ROOM.. not the ALL-INCLUSIVE FEE which is the hotel cost!!! So for a discount of maybe 15%.. they will charge you $10 THOUSAND DOLLARS.. That is crap.. I have lost that money.. I don't want anyone else to get snowed by their woolen sheets!!! BEWARE THEY are Hard sell to get you to go ..don't go to the brief and DON'T BUY ANYTHING it is a scam!!!.. The Company after I found out..made note they are not even associated with the Privilege Club.. it is a third party scam!!! Beware!!!
Since we got there, we were a group of 9 people, or room it should be close to each other, but no that did not happend, but ok we can work that out, the check inn that was at 3:00 pm after arguing with the front desk they give separate rooms at 7:00 pm, my room has no ac working, they change it 3 different rooms when finnally we agree on a room that did not work well the ac, the food was very bad no taste , the restaurant had no ac, bed unconfortable staff very rude ecept Jodarlyn ( who was a aprendice who did not get paid for her job ) and Gilbelto at the front desk he tried everithing to help us, the mosquitos on the room bite mi daughter in the eye, and it cost me $200.00 to get a doctor with the prescription, if you are plannig a family vacation DO NOT GO HERE
Let's start from the beginning: check-in time. My room was not ready and when I inquired about its status, the receptionist told the room maid to leave the room as it is (glad I understand Spanish). So, I received a dirty room, the bed sheets were disgusting with cigarette stains (see pictures). The pillows smelled so bad, but so bad that we couldn't use them. When I asked them to get things cleaned, the response was always the same: it will be done in 5 minutes. As Einstein said, time is relative because these 5 minutes turned out to be days. I took pictures of spiders and roaches in the room, that is how bad the room was. Next: the mini bar was not working. When I asked them to get it fixed, I was informed that the mini bar (a fridge) does not cool anything, it is only there for the sake of storing things. Finally, the lady cleaning our room was yelling all the time "Dios mio, Aiii Jesus", complaining that the room was dirty. Rather amusing and ironic I must say. Overall, never coming back again (BTW, there is more see weed than anything else in the beach)
Good family hotel. Waiting for drinks at restaurants can be a bit long. Can't comment on alcoholic beverages as I'm not much of a drinker, pool is nice. Only complaint is that they charge $4 per day for a room safe, not outrageous but they're free at other hotels. Will definitely go back!
