OK I really am open minded but this review is really misleading .... Thank heavens they won't be returning. The poster is correct thought , everyone is entitled to their own opinion but at least be factual and honest.
"everyone is entitled to their own opinion... this resort is an ABSOLUTE DIVE!!! totally disgusting... food is gross.... rooms have bugs and beds are broken.... weather was rainy for 4 of our 7 days there... bus ride to resort is REDICULOUSLY LONG and bumpy and SCARY in the dark with NO STREET LIGHTS... staff are very kind, and new huts were being built when we were there so im not sure what it looks like now. i would never return to this resort if i only paid $100 to go!!!"
There are so many repeat guests at this resort, I can assure you it isn't a complete dive, it may be a 3 star but not a dive.
I still will never understand how you can say the food is disgusting when they have, yogurt, fresh fruit, fresh bread, toast, eggs, omelette bar, juice, cereal, coffee, sometimes sausage or bacon, pastries, they even have fresh tomatoes, cheese if you want to make a sandwich and of course the Cuban croquettes, french toast, pancakes etc etc for breakfast. They have meat, fish sometimes, rice, salads and fresh veggies, fresh bread, soup, banana chips, pastries and cakes etc etc for lunch, They have a selection of meat, fish, potatoes, rice, soup, salad, hot veggies, bread, pasta bar, grill, sometimes pickles, pastries, cakes, sometimes ice cream (not in low season as a rule) wine, beer, coffee etc for supper. They even have a snack bar open from 11 to 5 with pizza, hot dogs, hamburgs, fish and chips and a small salad/fruit bar. The salad bar has what is available, you may not get all of those all the time but generally they do have hamburgs and pizza and fries, depending on the season.
I have never seen a bedbug there in all my visits, I HAVE seen people take towels to the beach and bring them back to their rooms or go out at night and not spray their lower legs which inevitably may result in sand flea bites. I am not saying bed bugs cannot exist, I am saying many people assume any bites they have are from their beds when in actual fact it's from bringing critters back to the room.
If a bed is broken, ask maintenance to fix it. Duh.
The weather is not the resorts fault. That's a ridiculous statement.
The ride is not that ridiculously long.... it's 1 hour and 20 minutes and yes it's a little bumpy. We always have a blast on the ride to start the holiday LOL. Just for the record we don't have street lights on our highways and country roads either Einstein. <rolls eyes>. Good thing you didn't holiday in the Dominican Republic a few years ago and fly into Puerto Plata and then take a 3.5 hour bus ride to Samana to holiday .... I did .... it was great LOL
Anyway.... I am getting a little tired of reviews that blame things like weather, dark nights, no face cloths for having a bad holiday .... Good Lord.
At least they liked the staff. :-)
