Quiet and New Resort
Posted Mar 27, 2017
Overall, it was a really good experience and I would recommend the hotel for the value. The resort itself is brand new and beautiful. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. When we arrived, the staff did not try to upsell us to the Royal Service, but after reading other reviews, I was interested to see what a room in the Royal Service area looked like. The person from the front desk took us to both our room, which was an ocean view and to the swim up room so we could see both. After seeing the Royal Service room, we decided it wasn't worth the cost for the upgrade. We were very happy with our ocean view room. It had everything we needed, including a well-stocked mini-bar, a balcony, and a double shower.
The pool is huge and has a swim up bar. There are plenty of lounge chairs and cabanas, with many of them looking over the sea. There are options to sit in the shade or the sun, and the workers put towels on every chair in the morning and replace them as needed throughout the day. The beach is a little bit of a walk and the sand isn't fine or soft on the feet. We ended up buying water shoes so that we could comfortably walk on the beach. The sea was very cold and was not calm enough for swimming, but the area has beautiful views and interesting rock formations and sea life.
The restaurants were okay for all-inclusive. Only 2 out of 3 restaurants were open each night, and the menus did not change, so not unlimited options.
