Checked in Feb 26, 2011 and stayed one week. We were the only Americans that I know of...mostly Canadians were at the hotel. Not sure why. But anyway, the staff was friendly and bent over backwards the entire time we were there.
The rooms are ok overall. Our room was by the quiet pool for 2 days with a mountain view and we asked to move to ocean view because our toilet wouldn't stop running. They took care of helping us move all our luggage. The pools are beautiful. There's plenty of chairs. We were a little disappointed that there is no hot tub.
The buffet is awesome. The food is great with plenty of choices. The drink selection is great and the bars were never too busy. The service was great the entire time.
There wasn't much going on in the evenings. This is an area for improvement. We just drank and walked the beach at night because the activities are boring...nothing too wild. It's very family friendly and lots of 60+ age people, too.
The beach was very nice, but vendors swarm you trying to sell stuff while you're trying to relax from about 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Here's a tip...you can barter with them and trade clothing or goods from the US. They love American clothing and will give you jewelry and art in exchange for what they sell!
There's golf, casino and mall within walking distance to the resort.
Overall, we had a very nice time and would recommend this hotel over any others in the nearby beach area.
