Almost, almost paradise - what a beautiful resort!
Posted Sep 15, 2016
The location of this hotel was fabulous. The beach was awesome. Everyone on staff that we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. The arrangement of the resort and the transportation around the resort was great. They supplied ample options for entertainment if you didn't want to just sit on the beach or in a pool at a bar all day. We saw a few shows, a couple in the open air theater and one in the market square. The options for shopping, in the square was accommodating, but the prices were extremely high. Try not to forget any essentials, suntan lotion, bug spray, etc. - because it is very expensive. (Bug spray is definitely needed if you are prone to mosquito bites, got a lot of bites the first night, before I purchased my expensive bug spray.) Food was good and there was a lot of variety. We only ate in the main dining halls, never in one of the restaurants. Our room was fairly large, but the air conditioning didn't work as well as we would have liked it too. But overall the room was clean and sufficient for our stay. We really did not spend much time in the room. Activities on the beach were nice. We did some aerobics one day, that was very interesting. The entertainment in the bars was also pretty good. Vendors are allowed in the gated resort, but it appears they are regulated. They are not too harassing and are all stationed near the main lobby or in the market square. Finding deals with the vendors is a strong possibility.
