Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Gorgeous with meh food and spotty service.
Casitas and property is stunning! Rooms are clean and comfortable. We went with kids age 10 and 8 and they loved the pool and our room. Only areas for improvement are: 1) staffing the family pool during the week, not just the weekend. It's a SPENDY place to not have somebody taking lunch and drink orders at the pool. We had to dial in the order and wait a fairly long time to get it. 2) Food is VERY mediocre, and of course incredibly over-priced for what it is. 3) The amount of plastic water bottles used is a little embarrassing; seems they could get with the eco-program and find a better way to do this without all the waste. Hoping that the ramp-up after COVID may bring the service and food program up a notch. I'd need that to return at this price tag!
