We were the very FIRST guests to arrive at the resort and really had no clue as to what we were in for. Upon arriving we were greeted by the entire staff, senior management, ownership, a full mariachi band, a slew of photographers, and were handed two pairs of golden scissors to help cut the ribbon. After that, champagne awaited and a very excited front desk staff! I guess it's easy to think the royal treatment might have stopped there, but it didn't. We were escorted to a gorgeous room by the Resident a Manager Salvador Gutierrez, who continued to be at our service for the entire trip. While some of the staff are still being trained, and speak little English, they couldn't have been more gracious and eager to serve.
The resort is gorgeous, and I'm sure will continue to be even more beautiful after all the finishing touches are on and the flowers and vegetation are fully grown and in bloom. The rooms are fantastic with deep soaking tubs, a large double head shower, and variety of pillows to choose from. The "Secrets Box" is a fantastic way to receive early morning, or late night room service, without being disturbed. The pools are beautiful as well, and the views from your room, or the pool are magnificent!
The food: the food is by far the best we've ever experienced at an all-inclusive! Oceana and Portafino, were our two favorites, which is surprising since we typically find the Italian restaurants lacking at other resorts. The sashimi at Himitsu is very good, and the grilled fish filet in garlic butter from the Seaside Grill is delicious! I think we ate it every day at the pool. We caught a Mahi Mahi while deep sea fishing and the chef at Oceana was gracious enough to cook it for us that evening. Again, fantastic! As the previous reviewer mentioned, the top shelf liquor is a bit hit or miss, but we believe (and hope) that will change as things get up to full speed, however, it would not be a reason to not visit this amazing place.
The spa is very nice and definitely worth a visit. The gym is a bit small but even to get the job done. There are yoga and Pilates by the pool, as well as beach/pool volleyball, pool basketball, beach walks, and bike tours, all put on daily by their entertainment team. Speaking of the entertainment team, I literally am having a difficult time finding the words to express how utterly amazing they are! My husband and I were immediately welcomed and embraced by them. Their energy, excitement, hospitality, warm personalities, and smiles were contagious. They touched our hearts like none before; Jesus "banana", Daniella (aka Chuckie), Carla, Robo Cop, Valentina, and the rest of the team (unfortunately the names escape me at the moment) THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for treating us like family! You are ALL honorary "Adams Family". You are all a VERY big part of why this place is so very special and will be missed until we return, and return we will! Already thinking about it and we aren't even home yet!
Our deepest appreciation to the management, and entire staff, for a job well done. Can't wait to watch you grow!
