Beautiful spot, just a bit buggy
Posted May 28, 2016 on Hotels
Ladera Resort is beautiful. The view from the rooms is insane! The wading pool in the room is nice, and the space to sit and relax is great. However, for the price, I felt the room could have been better. For starters, the bed was on the second floor, and for some reason there is no window up there so there is no cross breeze and on hot, humid nights it gets pretty uncomfortable. They do provide a fan, but a window would have helped so much more! And well there is a mosquito net around the bed, we still ended up with 20-30 mosquito bites by the end of our stay, we must have been tasty to them! The bed itself dipped in a bit, but was comfy enough. The other issue is because the rooms are built right next to each other and the 4th wall is open, you can hear every conversation of your neighbors which ruins the secludedness of it. We enjoyed the hotel pool (although it was a bit chilly and small), the space to lay out in is beautiful with another amazing view. The dining space shares the same great view, and the food is great, a bit pricey (the free breakfast just includes pastries and juice, you need to spend $15-20 per person for a real breakfast), but delicious. We enjoyed our massages and everyone on staff was very friendly. There's a shuttle to Sugar Beach which is beautiful (free chairs are on the right side of the beach FYI). And the free wi-fi works great. Overall, we loved our stay, and would recommend Ladera, but I'd love to see them make a few improvements.
