This was my 2nd visit with my husband. We came the first time on our honeymoon in May 2009. I'm not sure if this was done on purposes but they put us in the exact same room as our honeymoon stay so that made me quite happy! We stayed in 601- swim up. We actually didn't use the swim up so next time we visit we will probably just do without and save a little money. It's the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. This is a quiet resort so if your looking to party- this is not the resort for you. We LOVE all of the staff! Our favorite friend was Vital. He works so hard to please and is such a sweetheart! We can't wait to go back and visit him. The service was amazing. Anything you want- they will work hard to make it happen. The food is really great and the drinks are good. I'm not a huge drinker so I was fine w the quality. This is a resort for ULTIMATE relaxation. If you want to just unwind and relax, this is your spot. We did several massages and also did the dinner on the beach our last night. It was beautiful!
It bothered me to see people not tipping- these people work so hard to make you feel comfortable and wait on you hand and foot so we tipped every meal and were so happy that we left a large tip on our card at check out for several waiters and staff that helped us. The grounds are beautiful and we did activities at the maroma marina and that is right next to the resort- we had a BLAST! I highly recommend this place for a chill vacation. Do at least one activity with maroma marina like snorkeling, parasailing or jet ski's. It's SO worth it!!!
