My mom and I stayed at this hotel, last May when it was just changing from a Club Intrawest Property to the Embarc. This hotel is excellent with all rooms having a beautiful view of the bay. I will advise that this hotel had 204 steps from the beach to our room, but the hotel has a golf cart that...

We have stayed here three times over the last five years. Each time it seems to improve. This last time we stayed in a 2 bedroom ocean view unit. It was wonderful. It had two beautiful balconies overlooking the bay. Rooms were clean and well cared for. We had maid service everyday. The front desk was helpful in providing advices....

This was our second time to the Embarc property and I can say for sure that we'll be back again before too long. Friendly, helpful staff; well maintained property; the best location in Playa Ropas; and gorgeous, huge suites! You can walk into the ocean in front of the resort and snorkel around the rocks to see all manner of...

This is my second time returning to Embarc (previously Club Intrawest). This time I traveled with my adult daughter for her 30th birthday. We exchanged through Interval for a 1 bdrm/2 bath. Same as I reserved last year. This unit number was 303 (last year it was 204 - I believe). The unit was virtually laid out the same way...

So very impressed in every way! We were in a studio unit. Could not believe the size .... It was huge! The partial kitchen was nice to have fruit and coffee in the morning. Every detail was thought of when designing this place! Resort staff was friendly and attentive. We didn't eat meals on the resort (except our first morning)...

Great weather, great location right on the beach, staff is very accommodating and appreciative you are there. Since it is on the beach, you have access to massages on the beach and other beach activities with in a very short walk or just a great choice of ocean front restaurants on the sand for snacks or dinner to people watch...

Stayed here as a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children ages 3 to 8) in March 2017. We had a two bedroom apartment and it was perfect; lots of space, 3 bathrooms (1), large veranda with loungers and dining table, outdoor plunge pool and sweeping views. The room was a bit dated but in no way unpleasant. The kitchenette...

We stayed here for two weeks. The first week we had a one bedroom unit and the second week in a two bedroom unit with three bathrooms. The first unit was musty smelling and there was visible signs of past water damage in the unit. Sprayed with Lysol and opening the room up helped a little. Our second room smelled...

We have stayed at the resort twice before and found the same attentive and friendly staff as always. The proximity to the beach (right on Playa la Ropa), the food and unbelievable views make this a perfect setting for either couples or families. There are a number of stairs and, if mobility is a large issue, you may want to...

I have stayed here 3 times and each time has been magical. The staff is amazing, the rooms are wonderful and I saw the most incredible sunset I have ever seen - it still brings me to tears when I think about it. I am going again in June and can't wait to see my friends at Embarc that are...
