Just returned from this beautiful Resort. and all my wife and I have to say is Great Place!
as soon as you arrive they take care of you. if there is a line at check in be paitient, it will soon be your turn.
We stayed in the Villas,( 3rd floor nice view, but after a day of drinking, those stairs become tiring.)
and the xtra money was worth it. an area where no children are allowed, towel card not really needed, your own private area with your own bar, and waiters. Fernando was great at what he does. you don't have to get up early in the morning to save a lounge chair or the outside day beds. pool is beautiful and warm.
the resturants were wonderful and every employee there is helpful and attentive.
the place is always being cleaned. just look above your head and I dare you to find any dirt!
the maids are quiet, honest and very professional. your room stays cleaned and bed turned down.
you don't have to tip, but I pass $2 here and there. and at the end of the trip I know who really took care of us an rewarded them in kind.
10 all around except it could use a small disco area somewhere in the building. don't get me wrong, during the day they have pool games and contest and at nite there was always some kind of show. but a lot of families were there with children of all ages, RIUart for younger kids, and also teens. but later if you are in your 20's the shows are kinda boring, and I also need some music from 2014 jamming late nite! without going downtown.
they have a cappuchino bar. OMG great iced coffee and lattes. Sports bar always have snacks all nite.
I even contacted the conseior before my visit and told them my wife's birthday was yesterday, and without NO XTRA CHARGE they placed rose petals on the bed on top of a swan made out of the towles and chocolate strawberries and a bottle of champagne in our room.
getting downtown was safe and only cost $1 on the R2 bus. also went to the wallmart on the bus.
THIS IS A 5 STAR
