Stayed here with my wife in Jan.Perfect beach,best on the island ,and we went to 90% of the beaches on the island in our rental car.Nice rooms ,kept very clean (dont forget to tip the cleaners).Beach was kept very clean,and the local guys hawking their wares were cool,did'nt hassle you if you said no etc etc,and done good bargins too.
Security staff at the hotel were pleasant and helpful.
Grounds were kept very well.The people who do the tours and have their öffices"set up near /around the lobby were very helpful and nice,,,even when the inquires had nothing to do with them.
Best part of all was the nightly shows,,,,the lead dancer Tiffinay,and all her dancers were FANTASTIC,,,REALY !,and I usualy dread the shows every resort puts on,,but these guys were professionals,,,,,
That was the good part......
Food------same every day I'll repeat,,,SAME EVRY DAY,,,,bland ,very little choice,and serving reheats from one day to the other....Breakfast had boiled patatoes ,,,hmmmmm same patotoes(and other stuff) as the last night and more like that ...No ice cream for desert...rating on the food out of 100-------5,,and only because the coffe con leche was GREAT.
Hotel staff (except cleaners and security)---Very bad attitude,especialy the bar staff (well ,,,most of the bar staff ,not all),not very friendly if you did'nt have any spanish (btw,,I speak spanish so I did'nt get much attitiude from them ,but my wife and other english speakers did have problems).Main reception staff ,,,no manners...sorry ,but I grew up with a please and thank you gracias y de nada,,,,,but dont expect any manners from them there.
Serving Staff in the dining area were slow and could'nt care less attitude,especialy the cook with the scrambled /boiled eggs/ omelettes downright rude.
THE WALK---sorry but when your room is a 8 min walk to the beach ,,,it's a PITA in 30 degrees cel.
I might think about going back though,as the beach was great,,but the price would need to tempt me,along with some assurance that the issues above were resolved.
BTW.Change your american dollars with the beach dudes,,,,their cool and wont rip you off or steal your money,and pay for your rental car in the local currency,,,,If I had paid in dollars I would have paid $498 usd,,,instead of $219 usd in the local currency.
