Well I certainly would have to tell you that the first reviewer that said this was a Hotel from Hell was dead wrong. It was a hotel from Heaven.
Things have really changed at this hotel since late 2006 and the management has really done a makeover on the staff, rooms, restaurant and beach club. Attention to detail is now the norm.
Right from the first time we stepped into the lobby we were greeted by two friendly employees and the bellman. They took us over to the front desk where our room key and paperwork were all waiting for us to sign. It was very organized.
Then we were taken to our 2 bedroom apartment with a kitchen and a living room. It had a king bed in one room and two queens in the other. Lots of closet space, make-up area with a lighted mirror and a few end tables.
It was air conditioned and very clean. The kitchen had a gas stove, a small fridge, a microwave oven, a coffee maker, a blender, pots, and pans cooking utensils, glasses and silver ware.
Bathroom had a separate room for the toilet and a separate walk-in shower. The bathroom sink and vanity was very large. There were four large bath towels as well.
Just off the kitchen was a small living room with a couch, chair, TV with cable and a nice four-person dining room table and chairs.
The room overlooked a tree-cover pool that looked like a view from heaven. Just gorgeous is all I can say. I would take a chair out on the balcony and just sit there.
Most of the rooms have access to wireless internet as well so I was thrilled to be able to stay connected.
The restaurant has excellent food, an array of Mexican dishes and a beautiful setting. Soft music was playing and the view from the restaurant was looking at the pool and surrounding trees. There were lots of birds chirping and singing and just going crazy as the sun was setting.
The next day we went down to the hotel beach club that was complimentary as part of our accommodation. It had a few more pools with very above average service with drinks, food or whatever you wanted. They had a kitchen there that could prepare anything.
The swim up bar was fun as was just lying in the sun by the pool and looking out at the waves breaking in the ocean. Yes, just steps from a huge beach where you could walk for miles and probably not pass anyone.
This was definitely a romantic spot to visit and I would highly recommend this property to anyone.
The staff was friendly and courteous. Some English was spoken and one of the hotel managers spoke perfect English.
I can't believe that the one rater had such a bad experience but I suppose it could happen. Once you get to know the routine you can schedule your room cleaning for whenever suits you best.
Security was very good as well.
Just an all around wonderful stay is what you can expect.
I am going again for another two weeks later this month and I expect to be treated like family. What could be better?
