Arrived yesterday about 10 am. Got room at 1pm (early). Impressed with lobby and check-in efficiency (but no champagne or towel, 'tho saw bottle on table..too early?:):)
Very pleasantly surprised by this place, given the price point. All staff helpful, friendly and efficient (so far). Nice room, bed comfortable - think modern Ikea style, not lavish - everything you need. Welcome bottle of wine and chocolate covered strawberries in room.
Food so far is very nice, good selection. Ate at Oriental last night and buffet for lunch (giant shrimp!). Went to beach buffet today for lunch; adequate with view of ocean. Main buffet for lunch has everything you would look for, as has b/fast buffet.
Show was good last night, plus they had a jazz saxophonist in the plaza beforehand and a DJ after.
No problem getting a palapa on the beach at 8am this morning, but most umbrellas round the pool were gone by 8am. Beach is much better than I was led to believe...and I'm a beach person! Pools are popular and the entertainment team is enthusiastic and not annoying in the slightest (at least for us).
My only drawback is the wifi in the room for laptop use is VERY EXPENSIVE - $15 for 24 hrs or $40 for 72 hrs (these prices just started yesterday). It's included for "Privilege" and it's also free in the lobby area and plaza outside the lobby.
Don't know when/if I'll be able to answer or post again - having too good a time on the beach! (ha,ha) to walk to the lobby - 'tho it's only a 5 minute stroll through pleasant grounds.
Hope this helps anyone coming or thinking of booking. Mags
