I took a tour of the facilities the week after New Year's as a potential place to bring a workshop group at the end of 2012. I was appalled at what I saw. The grounds are overgrown and unkempt. The villas are FILTHY and all of the mattresses have huge stains, there's mold and cracked tile everywhere. This must have been a beautiful resort at one time and it has fallen into deep disrepair. The place was deserted when I was taking the tour. It maybe had 4 guests in the entire resort.
It's a shame that this location is in such a sad state. I didn't get the sense that the manager who was showing me around thought that there was anything inappropriate about showing me unmade rooms that looked like they hadn't been stayed in in years with bare mattresses, huge stains, dead bugs, mold, broken tile and mirrors, etc.
The spa had no one working in it and the rooms were not very soothing.
In terms of priorities, I found it amusing that with all the work that needed done in the villas and rooms and the grounds, there was instead an employee painting a frog statute near the entrance.
I have no idea when the other reviews of this resort were written, but the resort I saw did not resemble any of the experiences I see accounted for here. I really wish I had taken pictures to post, but I was so appalled at the condition that I didn't for a minute consider bringing a group there.
