Excellent choice! Relaxing time in CR
Posted Nov 20, 2016
If you are looking for a relaxing time in CR this is the place! We travel a lot and have been to many different islands, always stayed at 5 star resorts and double the price, so didn't have much expectation for this place. But we were very impressed with service, food, the grounds and the room of this hotel. The service is excellent, every single staff member goes above and beyond to provide your every need, beginning with shuttle bus drivers, restaurant reservation desk, room service, and even the hostess at the buffet (hi Sylvia:)). The food is really good and healthy! The best restaurant we liked was Catalinas and Italian, but other restaurants were very good as well. Even buffet food was exellent! Hotel grounds were very nicely done and felt very private. We saw some animals, like squirrels, cats and a lot of iguanas. Only saw one coati and once saw monkeys. That was a little disappointing because I was expecting to see a lot more wild animals on the property. The pool area had many lounge chairs and they were empty. You don't have to reserve your chair at 6 am like in other resorts. The pool was large and the water was just the right temperature. Warm and refreshing. The beach I didn't like very much. The ocean had waves and the sand was not fine, and was hurting my feet. Bring shoes to walk on sand. The hotel is about an hour from LIR airport and I found it cheaper to rent a car than to get a taxi or shuttle for 2.
