The room was immaculate, the sheets were crisp and white but the bed was a rock (had to sleep on 2 Duvets in order to not be sore in the morning). The view was great and it almost made up for the sparse and non existent landscaping, cracked concrete, the exposed wires and the unfriendly (basically rude) staff. It was also next to a nude beach which we were not expecting.
Additionally, if you need to change your reservation at all due to illness, emergency or whatever, they will charge you a 9%, yes that is 9% of your ENTIRE TRIP just to change the dates - last I checked they are not restocking large appliances, just changing a date in their computer for OFF SEASON dates. if you change to high season, you pay the 9% PLUS the difference in rate (which one would expect to pay the difference, but the difference PLUS not 9% of your entire trip). ABSOLUTELY ridiculous.
They also fail to mention as they try to book you at their resort that it is not safe to walk off of the property so you are forced to pay any cab at any time a minimum of $65 round trip to get anywhere off the resort - so keep this in mind if you plan an excursion which most DO NOT include transportation to and from. So glad I did not bring my children as I would have been fearful for them.
Hope this helps so that someone else doesn't' spent thousands of dollars on a dream vacation to be treated rudely and to have accommodations that are on par with Motel 6 (not that there's anything wrong with Motel 6 but you are paying Hyatt or Ritz prices and getting Motel 6 accommodations).
