This is paradise I love this resort and the stay was amazing. Staff is extra friendly and helpful I had an amazing birthday. There is seaweed in summer months and hustlers on the beach don’t but from them all at. They are aggressive but In the resort it was just amazing. Rooms clean and cleaned daily even with language barrier they made sure to help understand each other to serve you better.

Everyone was so nice and worked so hard to make our stay better. All employees worked so hard. Resort is beautiful! Dinner option could be better but was still good. The towel lady at the spa area could’ve been a little nicer but I’m sure was because she was working long hours and didn’t had enough sleep.

The room service was horrible, the staff didn’t provide important information that we needed, the staff barely provided assistance and they didn’t inform me of any of the included excursions or amenities.

I dont even know where to start, I've never experienced such a terrible check in experience. Waited 4 hours to check in, The staff agent Enrique was the most nastiest ever. It is very sad i go to my parents country to experience such a disheartening treatment. Everything about the Privilege Category is absolutely horrible, No premium drinks, no premium amenities except a room with a jacuzzi, your not allowed premium drinks and the food was Okay. For me if i am paying a Privilege service there should be Premium Amenities, other resort chains have that same Category and step up to the plate. I am a huge traveler and it saddens my heart knowing i was mistreated in this establishment specially that i have visited this place before. The staff definitely needs TRAINING AND COACHING ON CUSTOMER SERVICE. Truly Unacceptable
