Beautiful Hotel, Beautiful View
Posted Aug 25, 2016
My husband & I had never stayed at an all-inclusive resort before, so this was an amazing first experience. The staff was very friendly & very helpful with every question we had. Our room was clean & the view was incredible! Several restaurants were served buffet style. They were quite tasty & you could find something for everyone! Other the restaurants were served a la carte (where you pick from a menu & they bring it to you) - they were simply delicious! Everything really is included: food and drink (even alcoholic beverages), room service, day & night time activities/entertainment. Tips are not required but we felt the service was outstanding, so we left tips. Usually $2 for breakfast/lunch & $5 for dinner. (We also tipped other hotel staff $2 & shuttle drivers $5.) There are two beautiful pools: the "fun" pool (or you might call it the "party" pool) & the "quiet" pool. The atmosphere is family & kid friendly (surprisingly, even with the amount of alcohol being consumed.) We found most of the people staying at the resort to be friendly as well. There is a gym to work out in down by the north pool. A spa in also connected to the gym, but you do have to pay extra for the spa services. There is also a massage tent on the beach which you also have to pay extra for. The waves crashing on the beach (at least in mid-Aug) were extraordinary! The were so powerful that swimming was not possible, so that might be a drawback for some families. Overall it was a wonderful experience!!
