The resort was big and had something for everyone. Toddler pool was perfect. Nice views. Pretty good food and drinks. Staff was hands down the best all over the resort, valet, bell man, even the turn down service.
Everything was pretty expensive. The cafe was so incredibly slow. During about dinner time there was only 1 tram going back and fort to the beach which took forever.
Location and standard.
Service is poor..... we had stomach problems when we used restaurant at the beach. 4 of us. Billy Santos Director of Food and Beverage contacted us since I left feedback on the hotel web. To follow up. I’ve replied with details for contact and suggestions but since 5 days nothing. No interest nothing. So here we are.! They should work on cleanest of gym. We used it 3 days in in a row. Mirrors, floor was not cleans at all!!!! Dust, sticky floor doesn’t encourage you to enjoy it. Service at the pool? Only one day we were approached out of 3!!! 2 other days we were not existing to the staff. I would expect more from management!
Hotel was very beautiful, clean and friendly
I didn’t like Avo restaurant’s host behavior. He was very rude and unpolite with guest.
This property is amazing! As beautiful as it is, the people the staff are really what make the trip. Everyone from the valet to the pool deck folks are the best! Everyone was working to ensure a perfect trip, you get what you pay for here.
Valet is a bit expensive.
The staff was incredible. They were so friendly and accommodating. It was a perfect weekend celebration.
