My wife and I had a great week at this resort. Before reviewing the resort I'll give everybody a very good tip. Pay your tourist tax on line and avoid the lines at the airport.
Now onto the resort.
The biggest negative has to be the breakfast buffets. The pancakes waffles and French toast are always cold and the bacon has enough grease to lube a car.
The other BIG problem is having to avoid the people selling time shares every morning. This is totally annoying!
The good: We upgrade to Royal Service and we're right by the beach. Our room was comfortable although a few items in the room were dated. The bed comfortable and the A.C. Worked great. We did have a small issue getting items restocked.
Our butler (still sounds funny to me) Manual was fantastic! He checked in with us every day and the two minor issues we had he handled promptly for us. What a gentleman he was and always had time just to chat with us. If we ever return I will ask for him.
The grounds are immaculate and even with the resort being the largest we have stayed at finding our way around only took a few hours.
The longest we waited for a shuttle was around 10 minutes but you could easily walk to anywhere.
The staff from the groundskeepers on up make this resort. Everybody says hello to you as they pass by.
The best food for dinner was Lapalpa and the Vento. All the drinks were good and our new favorite is the Dominican Flower.
Night time entertainment was good and the Michael Jackson show was terrific!
One note to people with children: Please control them in the restaurants. There were about 15 other couples and us that had our dinners ruined by four children running around like little terrorists while we were eating. The staff tried several times to corral them back to their parents but they kept terrorizing the place.
