We booked this trip through Beach Bum Vacations with Nanda van Zwam and will definately use them again! This was our sixth visit, so we have to like the El Dorado! The good and the bad of this trip-
We had the worst concierge service of all our trips-Fern (room 404, swim-up room). Once he knew we were not interested in the time share tour, he was no longer interested in helping us. We had the Anniversary Package and are Welcome Back members. We did get free internet and a bottle of wine for our anniversary (we asked for them ) but the Welcome Back was never mentioned.
I think drinks were better this trip with great premium brands. Jo Jo's has cut food costs-smaller portions and no cerviche bar with chips and guacamole anymore. We weren't all that impressed with Sante Fe-lots of food but main entres weren't overly impressive. Lots of empty seats but hard to get a reservation. Liked Rinco for lunch, not so much for dinner. Listed as open for breakfast, but never was. Both Italians were good, but the original one was our favorite. Nice size portions and great service-Armin was our favorite. As always, Kampai was our favorite restauramt!
We thought the beach was rockier this year. Bring beach shoes.
