This normal sized hotel in a world of mega over-the-top resorts is a much needed reality check. Situated on the gorgeous Caribbean Sea could be enough but there is a bit of Catskills on the Caribbean going on with the meal plan and activities. We did not partake of the meal plan but did enjoy many of the activities. Luis and David, the social directors, were fun, helpful, and easy to engage with. The activities, which ranged from a mariachi sing-a-long to poker nights to water aerobics and yoga, are for all ages. There is so much to do in the area but if you want to stay at "home" there will be plenty for you to do and it's a good way to meet your fellow travelers.
Betsy, the delightful chef, gave numerous cooking classes which were informative and delicious.
The hotel runs fairly smoothly though there are a few things that could be better. It should not take an hour, several calls and a visit to the lobby to get your bags upon arrival. There should be flashlights or candles for guests in a power outage. The information should be reliable and consistent from the desk staff for queries such as reserving a ride to the airport. Most of the staff were sympathetic and friendly, a few were distant and well, frankly, cold.
The outdoor towels and bicycles available to guests, should be easier to obtain at any time. The room kitchens could be better stocked, a colander perhaps, and some sharp knives.
Saying all this the place was comfortable and almost everything you could need was available. We didn't have time to take advantage of all that was available.
