Wedding and Honeymoon

Just returned from the holiday (20.07.17 - 03.08.17) we would like to share our experiences with you. We have not only spent our holiday, but also as a highlight in our facility also married (thanks Sharlin and George - our Wish came true) Perfect Organisation and unbelieveble Decoration - we love it!!!!The complex is idyllically situated on a rock, overlooking the bay and the island of Cayo Levantado (Bacardi Island). The complex and rooms (2 x per day cleaning service) by cleanliness and absolutely friendly and friendly staff. We were read in the 14 days every wish from the eyes. The utilization of the resort was extremely pleasant, since there was no problems with the availability of the beach chairs and umbrellas at the beach and pool. The bath towels could also be changed at any time. The private beach is reached by a white staircase and is - as measured by the capacity of the hotel more than adequate and super clean .... (it should be mentioned, the staff constantly with plaster, brush, broom etc.).The entertainment and evening shows / events are on a high level. The entertaining activities (yoga, fitness, games, dances, Spanish course, etc.) were excellently managed by the animation team, as everyone from this team had their "place"; for example Nefri our fitness and sports guru :-) We miss you!The hotel has three different gourmet restaurants: Don Pablo, Las Olas and Bella Italia, which did not leave any culinary wishes open. The buffet in the main house was simply fantastic, varied and above all rich. If you find nothing there is simply not to help !!!!!Room and butler service (Ramon and Pedro you are two very special people) complete a perfect stay. The organization of the wedding by the Weddingteam, the hotel staff and also the guests have made this day an unforgettable experience.The departure was very difficult, since we became part of the hotel family and we will spend our next vacation there again.Finally, we wrote: We have a dream vacation with mad people spent !!! Thank you to all of you and to the director of this hotel - Manuela - You are the reason that we have arrived at home completely relaxed, happy and full of energy. Nörglers and negative comments will always exist, but be sure: you are for us the Numero Uno !!!!! We look forward to walking through the lobby again in 340 days and saying: Everything is paletti, great and wonderful !!!!

visited for our 25th anniversary

We booked in July for our anniversary, it was a 1 week vacation.A few disappointments but overall it was a great resort. We had high hopes seeing as how it was low season. We had a nice room in the category we booked with a great view of the ocean. Everything was clean and well appointed upon our arrival and a nice touch with the anniversary banner on the door. We were able to order from the pillow menu before the butler left for the night. The bed was comfortable as were the soft pillows. Our maid did a great job of cleaning the room all week, no complaints at all in that department.The mini bar was well stocked but not cold, it was more room temperature than cold. This was an issue all week, nothing like warm pop after a hot day in the sun. If I left the door to the cupboard open the fridge got a small bit colder. On a few occasions the evening butler would put the beer in an ice bucket full of ice for us. Nice touch from Ramon.Ramon our butler in the evenings was simply amazing, he changed up the scent in our room every night. It was nice coming back to the room to a nice smell when we opened the door. The evening of our anniversary Ramon filled our jacuzzi tub with bubbles and spelt out Love in rose peddles on top of the bubbles. Some rose peddles and candles in the room, very nice romantic touch. He saved our evening when the a la carte dropped the ball. Food overall was ok. The buffet is very small with not a lot of options. I was disappointed with the selection or lack of selection. Every day was the same, with the lack of choices I did not gain weight, ha there is always a silver lining. Everything was hot and prepared wonderful. We never once ran into cold food on the buffet. Gala night in the buffet was nice, the lobster amazing. The only problem we had with gala night the seafood was filled with little flies, to the point we did not take anything on the cold food areas. The Italian . They dropped the ball on our anniversary dinner and the food was not good. The buffet was not open this night so when we left hungry we ordered room service. I would not recommend this a la carte at all.The french don pablo did not disappoint, we did this one twice and the food is amazing. From starters to main meals all perfect. The Brazilian, this was our favorite a la carte. The meat comes out to the table on skewers and you can pick and choose what meats you want. We sat outside both times so we could have a nice breeze while eating. The pool is very small I would hate to see high season at this resort. The deep end is deep so you end up sitting on the steps and standing in the few feet of chest deep water. It's over 7 feet deep so staying in the deep end is not possible. A few days the pool was pretty dirty with a lot of sand and bugs. I don't think the filter system was turned on all week. The tiles need a good scrub down. Very little shade to be had in the pool area and when the winds pick up you have to close the umbrellas or they blow away. There are a lot of sun beds no worries there.The lounge area is all open air, no air conditioning in the lounge or buffet. There are plenty of areas to sit and have a drink and it's always nice and clean. There isn't always a lot of staff maybe because it is low season so you had to wait a really long time for drinks even when you went to the bar yourself. Front desk staff were all amazing and helpful when we needed anything. We booked all of our a la cartes with the front desk staff. Entertainment around the pool, Nell (Nerfri) made our week a lot of fun. He has so much energy and makes all of the games exciting. I did a morning of stretching with him, it was a nice way to start the day. I would have done a cross fit class but the gym was so hot and stuffy i think I would have passed out in there. Nell does this excellent coconut show down on the beach, go and watch you will enjoy it. He even managed to get us to play bingo a few times. He is a really nice guy and made our time around the pool a lot of fun. This resort is small and very quiet during low season. I am not sure I would visit during high season I don't think the buffet can handle it. We had a nice stay and would come back. We stay at mainly Bahia properties and this one is a good adult only.
