    The grounds and the room were very nice. But the staff all had a hard time understanding English. Forget special ordering instructions. The drinks were weak.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We arrived for a week’s stay and had such a good time that we have decided to stay for an additional week!! So many reviews tell you about the people here that make your stay, and this cannot be understated. Each employee reaches out to you to inquire about your needs and tries to exceed our expectations, with high levels of success. It was my birthday on the 11th, and thanks to Angel (manager), Yudelka (housekeeper) and various other people who brought champagne and delicious birthday cake, I was moved to tears. At 63, I take none of this for granted. We have had the pleasure of repeatedly engaging with a group of servers whom we feel are practically family. Lisamar greets us, remembering us, and seating us at the best tables. We cannot wait to see her (and her beautiful dimples) at each meal. Miriam, Karina and Delvis seem to appear together and surround us with care and attention that we cannot hope to achieve, even at our favorite restaurants at home. Bar servers and bartenders (Carmen, Aurelio, Robert, Danny to mention a few) make a point to remember your chosen drink and your name and hope to keep your drink needs filled. In terms of food, there are some stand-out selections, for example, the filet mignon at Chez Isabella is melt in your mouth tender and cooked to exact specification. Lunch selections at los Olas are cooked upon order, and fruits, veges are fresh daily. The grounds are immaculately maintained and the landscaping crew are professional and polite.

  • 6.0.Good

    I visited this resort every March and this time the Custer service was horrible. They never said anything about closing the resort Friday and sending us over to the other resort to then tell us they were closing as well. We did not get any assistance when they sent us to hotel by the airport. We had to cancel our trip by two days. Will not be returning. Time to try another resort. Very unhappy

  • 8.0.Very Good

    The property is nice and the men that work there are friendly. The woman are rude and seem mad that you don’t speak Spanish or even bothered when asked for help and even more mad when you go to eat. It is mostly woman that check you in to the kitchen or restaurants and they are not friendly. When I asked how long the wait would be the lady responded, “ I don’t know, it depends on the guest!” I said, thank you for your kindness. Keep in mind there were plenty of tables open for us to sit and eat. Typically, the hosts would give a time of 20 mins or 45 mins but not here. My cousin was getting married and when we tried to eat together as a group we were asked to separate and go to different restaurants because they could not handle a large group. How can a all inclusive resort not prepare or have enough staff to accommodate all the guest staying at the resort?

  • 2.0.Poor

    On the surface the was resort was nice but as you get settled you notice how nasty it is. Most of the staff is extremely rude. The only staff we encountered that was pleasant was the pool bar staff and some of the waiters. The theatre area and lobby smell like cigarettes. People are constantly smoking under the covered area. Do not waste your money with a private pool. The pool is freezing cold and dirty. They do not skim the pool for bugs and the patio furniture has bird feces all over it. We were never able to enjoy that area. We had to exit our stay a day early due to COVID. The staff completely lacked empathy and refused to refund even half of a nights stay. The food was terrible and the drinks were watered down. I would highly recommend finding a different resort then this one.
