I went on holidays with my family (parents) to this hotel expecting a balance between cost and benefit. I was greatly surprised!
First, the staff were always helpful to give us a hand with everything we needed, from touristic information, to touristic plans, to finding the best prices on car rentals. They speak -- besides English -- Spanish and Turkish, in case you're wondering if they speak your language or as my parents, are afraid of people not speaking in Spanish. Maybe they need someone able to speak Portuguese - I had to help a lady to change her room as she and one of the staff guys were sort of lost in translation.
Regarding the room, it was in tidy and nice conditions, water ran perfectly (hot and cold), the TV worked fine and the free internet connection was awesome... 40 mbps of downloading speed!!
Another thing worth to be mentioned is that you can buy online and use the hotel's address after you're registered. Just make sure you are already checked-in and the staff keeps your things aside for when you're back from the beach. I bought from Amazon and didn't have any problem with things missing. This is just in case your trust is very hard to be gained.
From my cold home back in Colombia I and my parents would like to express my gratitude in special to Adrián (very nice and helpful Colombian guy), Christopher (I guess he's from Puerto Rico, very helpful guy), Burak (the most serious guy in the staff but works and helps as fine as a Swiss watch, he's Turkish, in case you're traveling from that part of the world and need some help), Johsmar (another super helfpul latin guy). You guys make yourselves be missed!
