Well priced hotel right on gorgeous beach
Posted Jan 28, 2016
Chose this hotel for price & based on recommendations. Was not disappointed. Checked in with not problem around 11 PM and staff was ready and happy to assist. Property is very spread out, so long walk to our "tower." That's because the property sits on a very long stretch of beach (a plus, in my opinion, as far as the beach is concerned). As per recommendations, we did not get the all inclusive and were happy with that choice as the restaurants on site all offer pretty much the same menu at each one (except for the one Italian restaurant). There is also a much cheaper alternative for drinks at a small stand on the beach. There are plenty of other places to eat right across the street from the hotel as well as next door on either side. So, I would also recommend you not get the all inclusive. The rooms have more than adequate AC. Beach/pool towels are free, as are cabanas (although the system for reserving cabanas is somewhat confusing; be sure to inquire upon arrival; ask Maritn at the beach/pool desk on the beach). Some great places to eat off site: Iguana Cantina, Dushi's, Moomba (next door), Garden Fresh. Our favorite was Dushi. We ate there everyday for either lunch or breakfast. Next favorite: Moomba (try the chocolate mousse for dessert!).
