I recently returned from one of the most memorable vacations of my life. This was a week I won't soon forget. The friends I have made, many of whom were the beautiful staff, I will treasure forever. I attended an R Family Vacation week at this resort. It's the first excursion R Family has ever done on land and it was a tremendous success.
From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by the entire staff on the driveway. They were there to welcome us and to show us to our rooms. They're the most friendly employees you will ever find--trust me! Jona was our personal G.O. and he took great care of us all week.
There were so many other memorable staff members that I can't name them all. Stafani gave me private archery classes, for which I am forever grateful. Hannah at the front desk is a real gem. The bar staff is the funnest bunch of guys around, especially, Dany, Salame and George.
Audrey, Benny and Cel were not only amazing teachers, but wonderful acrobats in their own right. Sam took me sailing, Richi helped teach me archery, Other stand-outs were Javier, Amaya, AniLu, Sergio, Luis, Rafael, Marisol, Dulce, Luca, Hayley, Lucia, Joannie, and the list goes on and on!
We even had the pleasure of being joined by one of the Club Med management members from Miami--Ramon was a great addition to our week.
The resort is situated in a paradise-like location, and I can't find enough good things to say about it. The food was much better than any you'd find on any cruise. The executive chef even taught classes to the patrons during the day. I was certified in the art of guacamole making!
There are so many activities to participate in and learn about, including a tennis courts, kayaks, sail boats, trapeze, and several pools. You can keep your days busy or you can sit and relax on the beach.
If you have kids, there's a day and evening care program. I don't have children, but never found them to be a nuisance during my stay. They are very well taken care of.
There are several beautiful restaurants on the resort, and one gigantic, superb buffet-style dining hall. The white chocolate french toast is not to be missed!
If you're looking for the best all inclusive resort around, this should be at the top of your list. Congratulations to the manager, Eduardo on running a classy establishment.
