Stay Away!
everything advertised on website is a bunch of baloney this hotel does not offer room service and does not have 5 restaurants it has 1 mediocre buffet, 1 restaurant available daily for dinner which seats about 60 max and and is completely booked everyday. only 1 vehicle for transportation around hotel for 1900 guest! it takes hours to get to eat unless you plan on taking a hike to get to anywhere including the pool, and the ocean?... its a 25 minute cattle truck drive away from hotel. my son complained about no hot water no plug for bathtub no washcloths gees in the end we were so fed up with chaos that We ended up leaving 3 days early upon checking there was no internet service, we waited as long we could, we were not about to miss our flights due to internet issues so the manager promised a refund which now is not happening after speaking w/ reps. We paid an additional $1000 for ocean view and got same mountain few as our son. As far as Im concerned Management should be fired, no order with staff no order with housekeeping. No order with food servers. The hotel is nice but it needs maintenance and staff tiles on pool were missing walls were chipping in dining locks didnt work in public bathrooms etc. the list goes on but im only allowed so many characters Dont stay here this hotel should be removed from website

Good 6.0
Good but not as expected
There's only one pool for children and its cold. The pool at the room is cold and you get charged us$50/day to heat it. Food is good but nothing to talk about, the all inclusive is very bad quality, except for the dinner restaurants. People is very kind but wit limited resources.

Poor 2.0
Terrible food and drinks. Total ripoff. An insult to serve such awful food and drink and poor service. Couldn’t wait to leave.

Very Good 8.0
Romantic getaway
This resort is definitely for those seeking to relax. Lots of vegetation throughout the resort, and views of the ocean from the hill is breathtaking. The service is impeccable. The buffet always had variety though nothing really stood out. We never got sick at the resort. There is a shuttle to the beach every 30 minutes between 10am-5pm. However this resort has lots of stairs so it’s not mobility friendly. It’s not the resort’s fault since it is on a hill. Bring bug spray! I’m already recommending to friends.

Exceptional 10.0
Un hotel muy bello con personal amable. Las cenas de especialidades son deliciosas. La limpieza es muy buena y las instalaciones están bien conservadas. Las habitaciones son amplias y muy cómodas. Mi reconocimiento a Maricruz, quien atiende a los huéspedes en la zona de albercas para llevar bebidas y snacks. A Julio, bar tender de la alberca principal y los conductores de los transfer en el hotel y al equipo de meseros del restaurante RAIXES capitaneados por René.
