Friendliest hotel in the world
Posted Jul 18, 2016 on Hotels
Fantastic welcome, incredibly warm and friendly.
I'd booked a standard double for a 1 night stay. Requested a high floor room with view. In my confirmation it said we'd been allocated an Indigo room which sounded perfect. We were given a ground floor True Blue room (19). No view from terrace & we couldn't have blinds open without people seeing in. Room was attractively laid out and spotless with really comfortable bed. Not sure about other blocks, but this room had thin walls and floors - conversation & footsteps from above & to the side.
Dinner was BBQ buffet night, with good but loud band. We were told to wait for a table at the bar. A 2 person table became available but we were left waiting - think we were forgotten, after waiting over 20 minutes from a table becoming clearly available we had to ask again to be seated. It was a confusing setup of buffet but having to order main meat/fish. We arrived for dinner at 8:30pm, well before last orders at 10pm, but some options/sides had run out. The food was acceptable, nothing more, & not worth EC$60 (£16 at the time) per head. Breakfast at least was very good though limited.
Resort is very attractive. They have their own excellent brewery. Proximity to the airport is fantastic. Service & friendliness was incredible.
Based on the room we were given & the dinner I wouldn't choose to stay here for longer than a couple of nights, but I think my opinion would be completely different if it hadn't been for those two things
