Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Pros: An adult all inclusive off the beaten path Cons: You'll have to pay more for taxis to go back & forth on tours. My room had the faint smell of trash/sewer or something. They wouldn't change it. My room needed renovating (cracked ceiling, broken floor boards) & maintenance (missing lights bulbs, leaky showers). There was construction being done outside early morning til the evening. I paid for the all inclusive option and there are no healthy food options. I'm a plant based pescatarian. Everything had meat/cheese in it. I had fruit and coffee for breakfast. They suggested I go and buy food at a neighboring restaurant. The bar had food I could eat but refused to make it. The manager had to intervene. Needless to say, I was happy to leave.

Poor service, run down facility, poor entertainment. Very average beach with dark sand and murky water. Good food. The room smelled mold. The furniture in the room was old, heavily used and partially broken. Not even close to 4.5 stars advertised. I would give it 3 the most.

Could go from good to great with a few minor changes. (Faster service from staff). I’m okay with slowing down on vacation but there’s slow and then there’s feeling ignored. Be prepared to not have private beach access but for the price it’s an overall good experience. Shopping center was close by, Ubers were easy to get. Would stay here again.

1 star, spend your money else where activities, service and no phone service to reach anyone in corporate was a major issue. one of the reps also called me a "douchbag" on the phone because my wife left a medication at the hotel on accident, we tried to rectify multiple and no one has helped us we had to physically go the the hotel and no one even tried to contact us

Carlsbad, California13 contributions5 helpful votes
I have been so looking forward to this! I was so excited to book an adult only resort for Christmas after being traveling non stop for work. I really wanted for my husband and I to relax and enjoy the beach and the facilities. But no! Don’t even waste your time! The road to the “resort” is a dirt road in disrepair. You better get a SUV to get there, and good luck finding it at night.! The first thing you encounter is the pungent sewer smell that permeates around the area. It is sewer but they tell us is “the construction next door “…sure Lobby staff is nice and polite but still this is not a Melia this is a Super8 at best! Room has signs of water leaks, mold, and many loose tiles. Spent first night and got a 7:45am jolt from the construction next door even though our room was not facing the construction zone. Nice breakfast ant least . I grabbed some fresh papaya and ask the girl if she could make me a smoothie and she just looked at me and said no. Oh well no harm done. After breakfast went to the beach nothing to brag about. We decided to make the best under the circumstances and went to the pool. The pool bar had a nice server Leandra who made a mint lemonade for me. She told me that they should have made me a juice or smoothie anytime during breakfast and I should tell the manager. Certainly some staff people are extremely helpful and nice but the hotel is not worth the price. The hotel management should carefully study what a True All Inclusive hotel in the Caribbean , Mexico, etc is and see how they are not all inclusive and not even in the same category. Only then will the hotel manage expectations properly. After seeing the pictures and some reviews as well as from our conversations with the property manager Fernando before arriving we were certain this was the best place! However here we are getting ready to just leave this dump!!!
