    Poolside and Beachside lounging like VIPs!

    Kevin Beltran, Emmanuel, Joel Vallarta, and Idran made us feel very special as we lounged poolside and on the beach for the entire week. The food and drink were flowing all day, everyday. Good times! (All-Inclusive Package). Also, Mario from the El Patron Restaurant provided incredible service and attention to our group.

    Injured by hotel employee. Management unresponsive and inappropriate

    Do not stay here!!! My wife and I came for our 25th anniversary. My wife took a water aerobics class and was injured by an instructor. With no warning, without asking permission, he grabbed her from behind and squeezed her so hard that she had to go to urgent care when we got home for bruised ribs . We have spent months trying to get the hotel to cover the medical bills to no avail. Do not stay here under any circumstances!

    Esquivel and Oswaldo were outstanding staff

    Total relaxation on the lounge chair area above the beach with the gracious and hospitable server, Esquivel, who met all of our bar and lunch needs for four days. Happy Hour reigned supreme with Mudslides, Margheritas and Mojitos. Ceviche and Pita Alhambra with shrimp and bacon were outstanding. Oswaldo was provided outstanding security.

    Excellent stay, great renovations since last time!

    Excellent stay. The policy changes and hotel renovations since last time we came here (Nov’22) are very nice: all inclusive to include honor bar, El Patron remodel, new room keys attached to the wristband, the greener efforts to have less plastic (keep going!). The quiet at night. The food was amazing as usual and the reason we keep coming back (Neptune and Patron for dinner, breaks fast pastries and dinner desserts) (on top of great pools for the kids). What I wish the hotel implemented: all inclusive plan without alcohol! We are a non-drinking family so we would love to focus only on the food experience (and save some $!). Check in and check out is a little slower than it could be, hope they keep improving the process. I missed the homemade tortillas at breakfast Patron! Hope they bring them back, they were super tasty for the quesadillas. Great staff: Omar, amazing 3 paddle board tours, helped my daughter have a great experience the one time she rode with me! Gloria and Carmen from Patron & Jimmy and Gabriela from Neptune, very friendly hosts and waiting staff that remembered our choices the second time around and gave excellent service every time.

    Kevin Beltran is the best pool side waiter!

    We met Kevin our first day at the resort and he was amazing. Very attentive, hard working, and had great suggestions on drinks to try. We made sure to get seats in his area every day. We will definitely look him up again when we come back. Thank you, Kevin!
