Good Hotel - Mostly Pros/Some Cons
Posted May 7, 2016 on Expedia
Overall, our trip was pretty decent. First the positives - The food was great (Dinners - Superb, Lunch - Decent, Breakfast - Very Good). The beach and pool were very nice. Service was very good, but servers could have come around a bit more. There were a lot of people so I will not hold that against them.
Negatives - I am pretty sure the entire resort did not have air other than the room. Even the air in the room wasn't extremely cool. It was set on 65 deg. and set to high, but it did not feel that way. There is next to no night life during the week. That may change on the weekends, but we stayed Sun-Fri, so we didn't get to experience the weekend. There is not much going on during the day. Barely any music during the day, which is not all bad. A little something wouldn't hurt.
The biggest negative would be the gray area between the complete ME package and the ME+. I stayed at Riu Palace previously and there were no "levels" of all inclusive, whatever you wanted, you got. The strange thing was that they asked for your room number when ordering drinks, food, etc, which made me very uneasy. I thought that was what the wrist band was for? 90% of everything in the room mini bar is extra. It all played out though. No extra charges when checking out.
Personally, I would not go to this resort again, but my plan is to visit as many resorts as possible, so I will not be visiting any resort twice. I would recommend that you go to this resort though. The price we paid, can't beat it
