So we stayed here on our RCI time share. Like anything you get what you pay for!!
Right off the bat we were pestered under the guise of the girl being our guest services advisor and it actually took 2 very strong goes to get the point across that all we wanted was a bell boy and then she came up and asked how did we know about the ruse??!!
There was even a fellow hanging around the towel area who asked if we were interested in the time share! Very persistent and annoying! If you are going to be there for 3 weeks then maybe it is worth giving up 4 hours of your precious holiday time to get there VIP discount card! But they are from what everyone says very aggressive in their approach so be strong!!
The first room they put us in fronted on the main busy road and the patio looked over the roof top and air conditioners which ran nonstop ...ugly! So in the morning I requested a move which we got. The room was just OK ... but 150% better than the first one!
The food is mediocre at best. Beware of drinks delivered to the beach..stick to Happy Hour or you will pay a ridiculous amount for a margarita!!
Big tip if you want a pylapa be prepared to get up very early and stake out your claim. I was up most mornings at 5:30 to get what I wanted for the day! You will need the blue towels from the towel desk to mark your chairs.
Remember it is not Canada ...people smoke everywhere. So if it bothers you park yourself at the waters edge! The beach boys are very accomodating and will help drag the lounges and umbrellas or you can set yourself up!
I did have a great massage in the spa!!
We would not rush back to this resort!
