Awesome Trip..worth the $ and would go back again Posted Aug 5, 2013
I purchased a trip to the ME and just got back. We stayed for 5 nights and got the Elegance Club package ( a no brainer because it is not expensive and you get several added amenities, like personal check in, lounges, private beach, etc.) - The trip started out perfect because our butler Juan gave us a very energetic tour. The only downside was Juan gave us a great tour right when we got there, but we did not see him again. However, if we called his number, he would help us with anything so we really had no need to see him. If the bellman sees you have a reservation for elegance club, they immediately check you in in a private room and get you started. We may have been lucky with weather because it was sunny from 7am to 7 pm every single day, it was awesome (we stayed 7/27-8/1). The beach is INCREDIBILE and swim up pool with bars is great too. The grounds are constantly being cleaned by a staff that is friendlier than I thought they would be. Every single worker says hello and seems happy to be there. The food was AVERAGE. Did not like the French restaurant very much. The steak house was good, and so was the Japanese place for dinner. We had breakfast 3 days in a row at the Italian restaurant because they offer a later breakfast and we slept in some days. Overall, great trip and worth the price in my opinion. I would go back here next year without a doubt!
