We got in yesterday. Just taking a few minutes out of the sun to send an e-mail and thought I'd share a few thoughts. This is our 1st time here, and it is wonderful. I'll bullet out our main thoughts and then get back to the beach.
- Weather....hot and sunny today. We got some rain that rolled in late yesterday afternoon. It was around the time that most folks want to head in and start getting cleaned up so no big deal. Don't sweat the weather. You may see rain but washouts seem rare.
- Food...very good overall. Have had a couple of misses with fish being overcooked. Surprised me based on past reviews. But unless it keeps up, I'm not complaining. Just had a wonderful ceviche at the Grill. Great rack of lamb at Barcelona last night. Can't wait to keep trying things out.
- Beach and ocean look beautiful. No seagrass to speak of. Water looks crystal clear today and I'll be in it within 10 minutes of now.
- Room is great. Wish we had a better view. Booked EC and requested high up in building 8. Was told we got building 7. View looked distant and we upgraded primarily for the view. Other option was 2nd floor of 9. Not the view I wanted but there are no guarantees. So far that´s the only disappointment. I guess if you really want the great view, better to book a RTT. But I did sit on the balcony this a.m. and was happy to be looking at the ocean even if it was behind the trees. Better than the way I normally wake up on a Thursday!
Atmosphere - you make it what you want. Want liveliness? Hang out at the main pool. Want quiet? Go just about anywhere else. My wife and I are here solo and have met some great people. Everyone seems very happy including the staff.
Will check this maybe once a day if anyone has questions.
