Stayed from Jan 24 to 31, booked through Transat as it was 300 a person less than West Jet. We where in room 208. A some what spacious room with a king sized bed and a beautiful view of the bay from our balcony. The room was kept clean throughout our stay but trying to get the maid to leave a towel or bath mat always seemed to be a chore. They move the evening shows and disco around the grounds nightly so you never know when your going to get enough "quiet time" to sleep. Very noisy resort at night.
The hotel grounds where very clean and inviting with the exception of the swim up latrine!!! Any time you have 20 guys drinking beer, hooting, hollering, and have a good time at the swim up bar for 3 hours without getting out of the pool...... Swim up bars just aren't a sanitary place to be, so therefore our pool use was non existent. Off to the beach we go. The beach is nice, although some what steep and very soft. They had just trucked in a pile of sand to the beach and it had not yet settled so walking the beach was difficult. To lay around and relax at it was nice though. Could use a lot more palapa's.
The food was plentiful and edible but NEVER warm, let alone hot!!!
The hotel is isolated and if you enjoy walking through town and adventuring out on your own, be prepared to learn the bus system, very easy and cheap, (7 peso each time you get on a bus) or take taxi's. Negotiate your price before getting into the taxi and be prepared to pay more if you look tired, hot, or are carrying shopping bags.
The evening shows where bad bad and worse than bad LOL My wife and I sat through as much as we could and then it became a game of attrition, who could stay longest LOL. One other person said it best, "my grand daughters grade 1 Xmas play was better!!!' No choreography and costume designs that left one of the smaller dancers tripping over hers throughout the performances.
All in all a vacation is what you make of it, and we had a good time. Would we return to this resort? Not likely, to isolated and the cold food was really a let down. On a scale of 1 to 10 we rate it about a 3.
