This place was horrible. Please do not ever waist your money on this resort. We were moved rooms 3 times in the first 36 hours. Large, red Ants in every bathroom. Broken tv in the first room. Shattered glass screen door in the second room. Broken jacuzzi tub that leaked from the wall into the room in the third room. They refused a refund of any nights (considering we were moved rooms at midnight I thought it was the least they could do for one night) since we booked through Travelocity. Check in was 30 minutes late, room service is always over an hour late, no food on the beach, the ocean is full of self placed boulders which is not shown in any pictures. Minimum 1 mile walk to any restaraunt. The staff was friendly but this resort is terrible. They offered us a free night and I refused. I genuinely wouldn't stay here if it was free.

Disappointing! Not as pictured

Pros: Pros: WiFi speed was fast, staff are helpful and friendly, food is like a yelp 4/5, $-$$$ by LA standards, prompt service, medic on-site
Cons: Refer to my review above
I had HIGH expectations based on how pricey the room rate was. Here are the main reasons we were disappointed: 1) Our Casita suite was NOT CLEAN. Upon arrival there was a strong musty smell -like borderline moldy- and the room was not adequately cleaned (zoom in on my pix). There were sticky smudges and water marks everywhere on counters, floors, doors. Hair in the jacuzzi. 2) Suite was old and poorly maintained. Fixtures were tarnished and rusted. DIY construction fixes everywhere. Refer to my pix of the in-suite jacuzzi...it’s yellowed/stained and the enamel is worn. TV small and not HD with limited channels. 3) Our “personal concierge” hustled us hard. When we arrived in the morning he said we could get a discounted couples massage if we attended a 1 hr presentation for their Exotic Travelers club (similar to a time-share program), which we agreed to. Later that day my husband got bad heat stroke and sunburn. I called the general concierge line because the personal concierge hours had ended at 5pm. They said they would cancel our attendance at the presentation and at the spa "no problem." The next morning, despite our do not disturb sign, the concierge was banging on our door. He was so angry that we had cancelled and had no regard to my husband's illness, he threatened us saying it was "impossible" to cancel our massage, and that we would be charged the full massage price whether we went or not. I told him to leave, then I called the spa directly and cancelled it.
