My boyfriend and I stayed for a week in July and had booked a Preferred Club ocean view. The room was absolutely beautiful. It was very nicely appointed, great shower, bathroom and comfortable bed. The air conditioning was a bit finicky in that sometimes the sensor did not register that the door to the balcony was closed so the a/c did not kick on if you went out then in.
The pool was great. Perhaps a few more umbrellas would be a good idea.
All the a la carte restaurants were fantastic and due to not oversized portions, an appetizer, main course and dessert was possible. Our favourite was by far Bourdeaux, great food and attentive service. We did not like so much when the buffet restaurant was turned to a la carte in the evenings. We did that once, the service was not as good as the other restaurants and the setting not as intimate.
Bar service was great everywhere. The resort was spotless.
It is about a 25 minute walk to the Malecon. We did that a couple of times, or a cheap taxi ride, 65 pesos.
We will definitely return and recommend to any couple looking for a romantic, relaxing vacation.
