    Great place to stay with children.

    Great hotel. Very clean. Great service. But varierty of food could be better. Very limited fruits, fresh juices, very limited seafood. Very good beach, especially if you travel with kids. Long day care hours 9:30am-10pm.

    The good and the bad

    We were there for ten day in May, and I will start my review with the positives. The location is faultless and the secluded beach is an absolute heaven. I can not praise enough how lovely the serving, housekeeping and the entertainment groups were. Every one of them was extremely polite and friendly. The hostess at the World Cafe was always friendly and helpful. The staff there were very nice and friendly. The cafe was always clean. The same can be said about all the other restaurants on site. We never found a fault. The entertainment ground went above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome and always encouraged us to take part in activities. Shoutout to Karla, Piero, Javier, and Esveydi. They were absolutely fantastic. We really enjoyed their company and they made our stay fun. The housekeeping team was absolutely awesome, our room was always clean and the bed always tuned down and we really enjoyed that. Every part of the hotel was very clean and they went out of their way to make it happen. The quiet man that cleaned the pool, that was so discrete, almost no one noticed the hard work he did. We are very greaful for his work. The Spa, was absolutely heavenly and Julieta is really really good. So good, I booked her twice. Now to the not so great part of our stay. We were given room 251 and on our third day there we started to see terrible mould patches in the bathroom and in the room. On the second day we were there the hotel cut off AC for 6 hrs for repairs and when we came back to the room we realised that the plasterboard on the ceiling near the AC was cut out and there was water dripping from it. When we informed the reception they straightaway offered to change the room and was asked the pack out bags. I appreciate the offer, but the whole experience wasn’t great. We were given a room similar to the one we already had and it’s only when I told them that i wasn’t happy with the offer they upgraded us to a room with the beach view, but turned out to be much smaller than the one we had before. By then we were so disappointed and had enough, just couldn’t be bothered. We never got an apology for our inconvenience or any fallow up calls to see how we were doing. I am sure the manager could have acted far better than he/she did, and this review could have been far different. It’s all about how well you handle a situation and sometimes a small gesture goes a long way. Unfortunately the front office lacked that touch. It was sad to see on the very following day that very room with mould and water leaking was ready for someone else with a banner outside the door saying “happy anniversary”, absolutely speechless!! We took two rooms originally on the second floor, and after our room was changed, the ceiling plaster in front of my kids room was coming off from the ceiling and was about to fall off. We were very worried that it might fall on our heads. The maintenance team had to do a major repair and strip the plaster off and it was temporary patched up. Definitely not a five star look!!!! Felt like we were staying in a three star hotel. To our great disappointment we were told a day before that on the 21st of May, the hotel reception area, the pools and the beach are closed to everyone, as they had a photoshoot organised for the day. We were virtually stuck in our rooms until the photoshoot was over. This should have been informed to us well in advance, as this is not an on the spot issue that came up. Once again, the hotel manager should have been more organised and tentative to the customers. Definitely not a great job on his/her part. Nice hotel with a not so great management!!

    Excellent hotel

    The rooms are big, clean and nice views. We had the normal package and we are glad we have not upgraded. The area is great as the resort is enclosed in an enclosed area where you can do other things. The beach of this resort seems to be the best as it was a bay so the waters are not ruff, even on red flag days. Also seaweed is an issue in the area but not so much in this resort. There is also a dedicated team that removes them all day. There are a few restaurants to chose from for evening dinners but not all open every evening. Food is good, however i think they could do better with the Mexican food. There is one place that is open all day for snacks (nachos, burgers, etc). All staff are amazing!!! From the reception, serving staff, all the way to the pool cleaning staff. A particular shout out goes to the entertaining team, Javier, Karla, Piero and Esveydi as they did a great job to keep us busy and Always with a smile. Definitely made my stay a great one. The Spa is a great experience and would recommend. Prices are on the high side but worth at least once. We had Lucia and Juliet for my wife and they were amazing.
