Nice and friendly place
The experience was very good. I enjoyed the stay and the staff was very friendly. The only issue was that the room have very limited power access to plug computer or charge phones if you are on a business trip.

Mi estadia
El hotel es lindo pero es notable que es antiguo, el personal es excelente. Las personas que trabajan en los bares de los restaurantes deben aprender más a cómo preparar las bebidas pues le ponen alcohol a los tragos que se vuelven imposible de tomar. El personal de la piscina y playa en el bar son una maravilla y los animadores también son excelente.

2/10 Poor

Visiting a resort means you have plans to relax and have a good time. And this was an interesting experience that made sure I don’t visit again because it was stressful and not fun at all. We had to leave a day early because it was overwhelming. It was confusing that such a big chain hotel doesn’t even let you walk between the hotels even though we are all on the same complex. Transportation to reach anywhere on the complex would take more than 20 mins to arrive and their “trains” don’t like stopping for folks. The cleanliness overall was very questionable, they would provide the same towels as the day before even if visibly dirty. At one of the restaurants you have to make reservations for the food was served cold and the food was not good at all. And lastly, my husband saw a roach crawling by grill during lunch and we saw a few more in the main floor of some of the hotel buildings. It was a bit scary to say the least. Leaving the hotel felt like they didn’t want anything to do with you any more. It took about an hour after check out to get any transportation for a crowd of people to the main lobby in the middle of the blazing heat. We had to push each other to get on transportation because we were all so ready to get out of there and there wasn’t even an intent of another “train” for pickup. And no one around to help. I could keep going but I will sum it up by saying I do not recommend this hotel.

Overall the experience was good. However, the rooms need to be updated with better AC, tv and mattresses. Also, the cleaning of pools should improve.

Would not recommend or go back. There was so many issues and we did not enjoy a relaxing vacation. We did come across some workers that we thought was respectful and courteous from Esmeralda; Pedro, Kelvin, Donald, Rosaur from spa.

Property was nice but the service wasn’t great. The bartender at the pool would just sit there and talk to the woman and barely serve drinks to other people. He was terrible

The property is beautiful, conveniently located at the beach. The only thing that we didn't like is our room. Mold was growing badly in the bathroom and the main room ceiling. The lights in the room are not very bright to hide the imperfections. The rooms need some serious renovation, it smelled like mold the whole time we were there. Other than that, it was perfect and lucky for us we didn't spend much time in the room. I recommend but make sure to check your room and if necessary ask to change.
