Reception: All the staff in reception area were very nice and very attentive, we definately had our favorites: Celestino(overnight) was the best!!! Ruben, Kensy (daytime) work very hard, and very accomadating to each persons need. Lobby very well kept and spacious comfortable seating for the people watchers
Rooms: Large size room we booked (family room #502) 3adults slept comfortably, 2queens and pull out sofabed, a/c and ceiling fan in room, **BEWARE** not enough electric sockets for everyone to charge items: ipod dock, 3cameras, 3cellphones, flat iron only 2sockets worked, so we charged everything in shifts and you must have extenders/adapters for items .**(tip) Front desk will give you extenders for your electronics $1/US return at checkout and get your money back, or purchase at gift shop for $3/US.
Entertainment: I dont know if these guys ever slept, SO MUCH energy, move from one event to the next without hesitation, no complaints and ALWAYS with a smile MJ, Ajay, Fransico,Kathy and Ashley were the best!!! The evening shows were good and the Circus show was great **BEWARE** outdoor event with cigarette smokers everywhere!
Plenty of help with excursions and tours in the lobby, definately do the "Carnival Caribe Show" great show,food and drinks worth the $$. ask for J.J. or Angelo they are wonderful. Night entertainment ends at 11pm and you are on your own after that, NO FOOD but plenty of drinks.
Beach/Pools: the beach was very clean(minus the seaweed), you could always find a lounge chair available. The pool could have been larger for the size of the hotel but the beach is a stone throw away. the swimup bar looked crowded all the time, but there was a walkup one very close by!
Food/Beverages: the meals were good, drinks were BAD, I like the sweet drinks but these were EXTREMELY sweet, so me and my girlfriends decide to drink Tequila shots with juice chasers, too strong, we just couldnt find a happy median. Stocked frig in your room with plenty of soda and water bottles and the liquor dispensers stayed topped off.
My girlfriends and I had a wonderful time, plenty of fun and laughs! looking forward to returning next summer!!!
