We enjoyed our stay in this majestic hotel. Service, restaurants, room service, breakfast, pool, hygiene, cleanliness, personnel behaviour, everything was e x c e l l e n t. Our stay though was in October of 2010
We also enjoyed a lot the extra activities they suggest you such as, dinner in the mountains to enjoy the sunset, dinner on the beach (next to the beach is a big pool, comfortable couches, majestic scenery and plants, fires on the beach and all these just for you because by reserving your dinner by the beach you get all these with the discreet present of 2-3 service people that you can call by the small ringing bell!!!), scuba diving, helicopter tours and many more activities that we unfortunately didn 't have enough time to experience...
The only bad thing I can find was the book charging... Oh yes, we paid a fortune, we tipped graciously the personnel and when we checked out, for my surprise they made us pay for a book either 17 or 33usd. It was a book in the room that I started to read, nothing special or rare, and I kept it to finish it on my long way back to Europe. At the check out, after the 'hello" and the "goodbyes", the payment they asked me. Did you kept the book?? On my surprise I asked which book?? They answered me, the one next to the bed. I answered yes. Ah sorry sir we will have to charge you for that. I felt like an idiot. In my opinion, if you want to charge something, write it down, notify the client like you do for the mini bar. Don't make someone that paid thousands of dollars look like an idiot for a cheap 8-10usd that you overcharge... To be honest I found it cheap, frustrating and lowered in my eyes, pretty much, the manager that had agreed in such an idea...
