- the garden - thematic restaurants - entertainment - atmosphere (fun, distractions, joy) - staff - friendly, helpful, sociable, sympathetic - the organization (infrastructure) of the resort (carts to reach the points of interest quite quickly, maps and indicators everywhere, English-speaking staff at the reception/lobby, live show for relax after dinner, continental breakfast starting at 5.30 am for those who wake up early, 2 medical offices and a pharmacy)
- the room - it had a smell that persisted the whole stay - the beds - the mattress is too soft, the pillows are not comfortable. - the furniture is old, it should be changed for reaching 5 stars - the TV had no signal, for a period of 5-6 days (there was a provider's problem) - the toilet wasn't flashing (a problem for other toilets also (from the reception, lobby)) - repaired by the staff - the air conditioning had a problem once, was draining (we found water on the floor, after 2 hours), the staff repaired it right away, but it isn't an usual issue for a 5-stars hotel (the appliances should be changed, as well as the furniture) - key-cards were demagnetizing very often, we had to change them almost every day in the second part of the stay. - the beach is large but it is quite crowded (I hope it is only in high season, we were in January), the pool seats as well. - In conclusion, despite the 5 stars of the hotel, I would give it 3 stars (Three European stars)
pools, beach service, guest supervisor service, trolley carts within the hotel facilities, poolside bar drink service, pool towel service, themed restaurants (3 out of 5 options available), a children's playroom, with a monitor to supervise children within this room
One of the rooms used had severe water seeping into the bathroom ceiling, wetting the entire bathroom, and dripping water over the shower, caused by the use of the upstairs bedroom bathtub. When reported to Francisco (guest service team supervisor) he changed rooms by helping us carry our bags to the new room, and helping us with a number of issues in an exemplary manner. Upon arrival we found a rat walking in the lobby of the hotel lobby. There was a dead cockroach folded in the middle of the cloth napkin in the restaurant, we only noticed after using the napkin. The main restaurant offered themed dinners, and at one of them mid-dinner time (around 8 pm - dinner was served between 6:30 pm and 10 pm) Main food ended at the buffet was no longer replenished, in conversation with the Kitchen chef and the restaurant supervisor on this issue the only answer was: "I feel sad that I can't serve you this dish, everything we've done is over". The room was not cleaned properly, the bedding was not changed either, we noticed this because when we arrived there was a yellowish stain on the sheet that remained for three days, a glass (from the room) with a tea package inside (used) was on At the table for 2 days, used towels were left on a chair in the hotel room for two days without being collected. We found a cockroach on the door of the hotel room (which was killed by the hotel guestervice staff boss - Francisco) After reporting these issues, Francisco made all reports to the Hotel management, who offered us $ 200 to be used in the hotel shop as compensation for damages but to receive we would have to sign a document (all room adults) pledging us not to comment on what happened to anyone and not comment on what happened on any social network or digital form of communication. When we requested to remove this item from the document, the hotel management informed that it was not possible to remove such restrictions, and therefore we did not sign the document.
On the third day of our trip, I picked up a stomach infection and spent 2 days in hospital, followed by 2 days recovering in my room. Trip was ruined for me and dramatically affected for my family. We will not be back.
Big resort, plenty to do for everyone, the staff was very friendly. The room was clean and a good size, unfortunately mosquitos do get in the room, called reception and right away someone came to spray the room and it helped. The main restaurant is big, each night was a different theme(nationality). The food was great and a nice variety. Beautiful beach, clear water, nice white sand. We will definitely be back to this resort, overall great experience!!
The only complain I have is with the availability for the A la carte restaurants. My family (2 adults 2 children) was at the resort for 5 nights and we were only entitled to 2 dinners. There was very limited options to make reservations because everything was already reserved. We were able to get reservations at the Japanese restaurant for 10pm(late especially with kids). The food was great and so was the show, having the food cooked right in front of you was entertaining.
Many choices. Beach. Inside transportation
Luck of airport shuttle
