This was a great resort for the price! We paid about $2,000 for two of us for a week, including round trip air fare from Miami.
There's always a bar open. All the top brands were there and bartenders were very generous in pouring them.
I speak Spanish, but everyone on staff spoke English, so no one should complain.
The food was plentiful and could have been more flavorful as this is Mexico and I love spicy foods. However, there were a variety of salsas available to add to any dish that I thought needed it. Serving an international clientele, the hotel has to prepare foods in the mid-range and let people add their own.
Wireless internet is available for a fee: $15 for 24-hour period. We did it twice in our seven days. It was nice to be tech-free for a couple days and just relax at the pool.
We thought the spa was a little overpriced, but it was a nice experience, we were on vacation, so why not!
Other guests were a nice mix. I was a bit concerned it would be all 20-somethings as my husband and I are over 55. But there was a nice range of ages from 20s to 60s with no group dominating. Nice.
Staff was very efficient and professional.
The surf was a big rough when we were there, and I got caught in an undertow/rip tide and couldn't get out. The same current kept my husband from being able to get to me to help. Lifeguards were very alert and on their way to get us before we could call for help. They were cute, too! :-)
Beds were super comfortable!
We would be happy to return to Golden for another vacation.
We can also recommend Best for airport transfers. Very efficient and professional operation with on-time pickups.
