2 week vacation review:
Pros : We had a beachfront family suite on the 3rd floor for the first week. From the silent a/c to the spread out of the room, it was more than sufficient. It was not luxurious in any way but had all that was needed and a bit more. We had the same type of suite for our second week but on ground floor. We loved walking out straight onto the beach
Cons: Lots of tiny bugs on the counter tops and bureau that I would wipe down a few times each day. House keeping only did a good job once out of the 15 days. Bed and linens were great in first suite whereas second suite had scratchy bedding and the mattress itself was so old we'd be rolling onto each other towards the center. I mentioned this to the staff but nothing was done about it. Couldn't wait to come home for a good night sleep.
Pros: Beautiful and clean. Comfortable lounger and beach beds. Nice clean towels.
Cons: Annoying salespeople walk the beach up and down all day long so the same person will cut off your rest or conversation at least 7 or 8 times per day, times about 10 different salespeople so I can safely say that every 15 minutes or so, all day long, someone is shouting at you 'hey you want a necklace'..or dress, or bracelet, or hat, etc..After politely saying no thank you to the same person 7 times the same day, I tried to just ignore him and found out this would be impossible because he then whistled and snapped his fingers and clapped his hands while shouting 'hey lady'. They don't usually walk up to you, they stay near the water thus explaining the shouting.
Pros: Delicious and very varied. Even the fussiest will be fully satisfied. We all loved the food and beautiful presentation. Especially loved the beautiful set up on the soccer field.
Cons: At the 'a la carte' restaurant, felt like we were the food...for the mosquitoes. Although we covered ourselves in repellent, we left this restaurant covered in bites.
Pros: The resort is spotless. Breathtaking views from everywhere and beautiful flowers and decorations throughout. Lots of comfortable seating, shade, and cozy spots to be found.
Cons: Very large and winding. It's a bit of a hike getting from the restaurant to the sol suites. Very expensive in gift shop. Paid $14 for a miniature bottle of 'off' repellent that I used up in one evening.
Staff: The best part.. every single staff I encountered was kind. I must mention the extra extraordinary who went above and beyond to make our vacation the best : Claudia and Luis : thank you so much for your kindness and professionalism. You are both fantastic. Manu :from day 1 he remembered our drinks, our names and without even asking, he would be there with a smile and our drinks as soon as we showed up on the beach and never did we have to ask for a refill, he would be there with it before we ran out, fantastic service.
The rooms, the cleanliness, the food, the beach, the staff and the weather will satisfy even the pickiest vacationer.
