Would look somewhere else -no resort vibe
We had high hopes for this place, and although over all it was an ok stay, there were tiny details that left us unimpressed and overall disappointed. We reserved a sea view as we read those have a more resort feel, instead of a time share feel, they gave us a room in the “residential area” (which do have the look and feel of an apartment/condo/time share) AND was sandwiched between 2 construction sites (one inside the property and the otherone in the lot next door). When we mentioned this they said it was an upgrade but we would have liked a heads up so we could decide, no alternative was given nor did they offer to change our room. The building and finishes are low quality, with lots of vinyl and plastic/latex/faux leather furniture everywhere (which I am alergic to) so I had to carry and sit on a towel during our stay. Although it is an all-inclusive, there are many things you dont have access ot have to pay extra for if you are not a time share owner which felt like a rip-off, and the time share thing is pushed big time by some staff. We chose this for the “gourmet” experience, but over all it was very plain, mediocre quality food with a hit and miss service, plates are presented nicely and that is what passes as gourmet (we didn’t try the thai nor the italian), all the pther restaurats were bad (bistro) mediocre (olive-rs) and ok (flavors-oka) Couple of people made our stay a little bit special Roger Vazquez at the sea olive and the manager at the flavours restaurant!
