The property was well looked after and the staff were incredibly accommodating and friendly. The food and drinks were fantastic. The property felt extremely safe. I would highly recommend this property to groups looking for a relaxing vacation. There was no fighting over pool loungers or long waits for restaurants like I've experienced at other resorts. A couple of minor drawbacks: poor wifi reception, many of the listed amenities were not available during our stay, no room service available, and having to shuttle between buildings created some delays. There were also no hair dryers in the room so I embraced my either wet or extremely wavy hair for the duration. Overall, I would stay here again with no hesitation.

No adults only areas as advertised (under construction) Extremely limited dining hours and options No room service available at all. Dining area when open is likely a long hike away Arrived at the beach on the FIRST Shuttle in the am, got no umbrella, and no Towel... nor were any available all day. We just paid for them. Nightlife is virtually non existant here, and you will not have ANY option being so secluded, unless you uber somewhere (i suggest JAX in bucerias) There was a bit of locals activities at the bingo hall of an emty bar but it was all panish, every night. We had newer rooms that were comfy and clean, modern. But 2 of our friends had older/bigger rooms with private pools that definately werent maintained as well and both rooms needed to be cleaned/maintained before they would check in. When we arrived we were shuttled all around the roperty without maps, to different buildings.. had no idea where anything was, that we were in different buildings (after requesting during booking 3 months in advance to be in the same area) 2 of our bags were lost in the shuttling for 24 hours , because over helpful shuttle drivers were just grabbing bags and taking them. All in all we paid for 4 nights... only stayed for 2. If you are spanish speaking and have a family and want some bland limited menus at precise hours, this is your place. Definatly not for english speaking seeking adults only or socializing

We really enjoyed our stay. Our room was suitable with our own kitchenet, and balcony. We had an amazing view of the ocean from our suite. Hands down the staff made our stay! Big shout out to Jorge who was beyond fantastic, Argentinea and Jesus were wonderful as well. All the staff were truly exceptional! Some day we will be back.

Property is fine, but it is a long way from central PVR. Also, it’s very hilly, and a little difficult to navigate.
