Hurrican Newton and all the changes from 2014
Posted Sep 12, 2016
Our first visit to FA was back in November 2014, when they just recently changed to an All inclusive (optional). I have to say the difference is very noticeable almost 2 years later. FOOD: The portions got smaller, the choices less abundant, the dinner menus now have sections on the side of "non inclusive" options such as premium steaks, duck or lobster. Peninsula restaurant used to have an amazing authentic mexican breakfast menu, now it's a buffet for breakfast just like Vina Del Mar only smaller. Usually if the hotel is full all inclusive the buffets are HUGE, but FA is something in between still. 2 years ago it felt like a high end resort with exceptional food that is already included in your price. HURRICANE: I have to thank all the staff for working non stop for god knows how many hours to prepare the resort for the hurricane and to clean up the debris after. GROUNDS: This is a beautiful and unique property. It is set on the side of a rocky mountain with gorgeous views. Very clean and well maintained.SERVICE AND DRINKS: Some servers are definitely better than others. So are the bartenders. If you find one that makes the drinks the way you like them, try to go back to the same person. I know I had at least 6 margaritas overall, and they all tasted differently. ENTERTAINMENT: This is not a party place if that's what you want. They have events during the week such as a mexican fiesta night, country night, a dance show. For clubbing, go to downtown Cabo.
