Nice stay and Fun New Year Celebrations
Posted Jan 9, 2015 on Hotels
My husband and I stayed in this all-inclusive hotel 5 nights. The room/suite was large and had a living room with flat screen TV, full kitchen, refrigirator with bottled water, bear, and soda, bedroom with the 2nd flat screen TV, huge balcony with beautiful view of the ocean. We enjoyed swimming in three main pools and walks on a long beach. The problem with this beach was that it was muddy due to sand and silt exposed during the tides and suspended in the water. The word "blanca" for the beach is desirable. It is more grey and black in some areas. Food was OK. I wish there was more seafood. Italian restaurant definitely needs a lot of improvement in ambiance/decor and cooking. I do not recommend going there. There was not much in terms of activities, but we did go on a canopy zipline tour of 5 short ziplines, which was pricy for foreigners and rented hobby cat for 1 hour. There were also windsuf boards there, but the sails were located at a different hotel down the beach. Scuba did not appear attractive by the small island not too far from shore due to poor visibility and not much interesting to see. So, we decided that was not worth it and was too expensive for 1 dive. We really enjoyed the New Year Eve celebration. It was quite a show starting with buffet dinner, and followed by the light show with DJ music, latin band, about 30 min of spectacular fireworks, champaign toast, and more DJ music until 3:30 AM! The way to go!
