Room on the beach......

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 10, 2013

Nice place that was clean and my room even had a corner view of the Pacific. Seemed like it was popular with the locals. There is pool with a swim up bar as well as the beach that is steps away. If you want you can even body board up the beach after a quick walk.

Unique Quality: Staff was friendly except at the bar where I was charged for an extra drink by some %#$% waiter but other than that I would and probably will go back as it was overall a good experience.

Directions: 15 Min South of the airport

glad to be out of here

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 10, 2010

I have been to various all inclusive hotels before so had certain expectations. This by far was the most disappointing experience:
1. the food selection and quality in the buffets was quite bad. you have to give them a credit for awesome food "recycling" (i.e. reusing items that were not eaten for next meal by changing its form or appearance slightly). Most of us had stomache problems and neede a toilet paper change every day. i think that says it all. also - don't count on 24/7 snack bar during "low" season - it's closed.

2. i thought it would be hard to screw up "unlimited alcohol" but they managed that too. Alcohol quality was horrible: tequilla smelled like paint thinner, vodka smelled like rubbing alcohol and beer was watered. the all inclusive option includes only one kind (the worst kind) of each alcohol type. let's just say i never heard of Red Bananza vodka or No Name tequilla...
drink the alcohol and you will have horrible hang overs even after a few shots ...

3. Security in the hotel is very very bad. You can literally get a key to somebody's room if you know their last name (we tried it as a practical joke on our friend). Maids will also gladly open a door for you if you say that something is wrong with you key. So I don't recommend leaving any valuables in the room or lock them up in a safe box.

4. Housekeeping here does not understand what "do not disturb" sign means on your door - they will still knock and try to get in the room. same with mini bar service - they don't give a sht... they have to check the bar even if you are not ready to see them or not there.

5. Speaking of mini bars. that was the biggest rip off. why would an all inclusive resort have a not included expensive mini bar where even water costs 23 pesos a bottle??? That was just ridiculous.

6. the nightly shows and animator crew are pretty pathetic in comparison to other resorts i have been too - the activities are very family oriented so don't expected any fun games for adults. let's just say that the most attended event was family aquafit lessons at 11am.
as for the shows - one night we felt like paying the guy to stop performing - his music was unbearable...

overall - i would never go back to this hotel again. yes, it was the cheapest deal out there - but it was not worth the pain. we are happy to be out of here!
