The hotel was very clean. The beach was beautiful! The service was great. The only negative thing I can say about this resort is the fact that every time we would go to the lobby area, the hotel representatives would try to book us on different things and they were pretty aggressive about it. We were so annoyed that we would avoid going past their desk.

We loved the pool area but wish there was more entertainment or activities doing the day. We had 3 different rooms because we were not happy with the conditions of the room. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The food and drinks was average and when I got home I was sick for almost 2 weeks, I was diagnosed with Salmonella Poisoning. Would not go to this resort again.

Had a wonderful stay here. We had a swim up room and it was awesome. We were very close to the beach and everyone was friendly. Ate at several ala cart restaurants and our favorite was El Olivio. We also enjoyed Portofino. We were not big fans of Bella Italia or M.E.A.T. our favorite bar was the Lobby Bar called Daiquiri Bar. We will definitely be back again!

Well first of all my wife and I found a bikini bathing suit that she liked in one of the shops at the resort. It didn’t have a price on it and they told us to come back in a few days to talk to the manager about the price. So we came back a few days later and the manager couldn’t give us a price so we showed him another bikini, by the same company that was $32. He scanned the merchandise and said the computer says $46 and that he can’t sell it for the price marked on the tag. Second of all, we were asked to participate in a seminar about the resort and we would get a free gift. Well it turned out they were trying to sell us a resort package that was $18,000 and I told them I was interested. They became very hostile in trying to get me to buy into the resort. 3rd of all, I was supposed to stay from Friday to Friday, but I got a call on Tuesday that my sister had passed. So obviously I had to check out Wednesday morning and from what the Travelocity rep told me, the resort refused to credit me for 2 nites. So with that being said, I would not recommend anyone staying at the resort...

Beautiful property and meticulously maintained grounds. Beach and pool area are beautiful, as well as the dining facilities. I felt safe and relaxed on grounds. Excellent transportation around grounds and to the Village area; with very good entertainment offered at night. Bahia Spa gave excellent treatments. The only negatives were that there were a LOT of mosquitos at night; don't know if the property does any spraying to treat mosquitos. The room's décor and bathroom was dated and very weathered. You could see where past customers had killed mosquitos on the walls. Some employees/staff really were friendly and pleasant and enjoyed their jobs. Others were not as pleasant and had so-so attitudes. The food options were plenty, but the quality was a "B" rating on the buffets... not an A (but I knew that this was a 3.5 start hotel and not a 4-5 start hotel).
