Relax Time

All in all i really like the hotel. It was nice, clean, stuff was friendly. We really enjoy life shows. However outside the "club premium"a lot of workers of the hotel didnt speak English language. Whats more rekreaction atractions were sheduled so if we wanted to rent for example volleyball we had few problems because it wasnt that specific hour.

The hotel was amazing. All the staff members were extremely nice and helpful. We spent most of our time relaxing by the beach and the pool. We did leave the hotel to go out on 4x4 car drives. We didn't want to leave but we had to.

The good, the bad and the ugly.

THE GOOD: The hotel is right by the beach, which is wonderful. You can eat all you want, and the food is delicious and fresh and clean. You can do buffet or even make reservations at one of their restaurants. THE BAD: The staff is sometimes unfriendly and not very helpful. Also, there was an ongoing problem of our room keys not working, so we had to walk all the way back to reception to get new keys twice. THE UGLY: The beaches are filled with people desperate to sell you something: sombreros, cigars, hair braiding, jewelry, excursions, etc. So it's not exactly a beach environment for relaxing.

Make reservations for excursions once you check in. DON'T WAIT. They fill up quickly. Also, there's not much to do in terms of excursions on Sundays.

Great Resort

I was pleased my stay at the resort. Plenty of water sports are available. I enjoyed the banana boat ride. They also had parasailing, jet skis, kayaking, tubing and horseback riding on the beach. Nice pool with a swim up bar. During the day, the staff provides excellent entertainment for the kids and adults at the pool. The music from the entertainment is a bit loud - it can be heard from your room. Also, there is a golf course and mini golf course available. Food is okay. I suggest the fish and chicken, which was very good. They have several restaurants (seafood, brazilian, mexican, italian and oriental) that require reservations, which needs to be booked early. They fill up fast. A fee is required for lobster and shrimp at the seafood restaurant. The superior room is okay, but the premium upgraded rooms are definitely the better choice. They come with two balconies, spacious living room with television, dining room with bar stacked with beverages (water, coke, sprite and rum replenished daily), spacious bedroom with television and spacious bathroom with seperate shower and shower/tub combo. Also, the premium upgraded guests get the privilege of using a large jacuzzi, lodge and eating area with waiters that only serve them. There is a health spa that has decent rates, but there is no fitness center. Great location on the Play Dorado Complex - shopping plaza and night clubs within walking distance. I would definitely stay at this resort again.

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

When buying merchandise from the locals on the beach or at the stands, never pay the asking price. Offer them at least half of whatever they are requesting. The locals make most of the merchandise at little or no cost to them. Therefore, they will still make a profit. Sometimes, they will even throw in free stuff with the bargaining price.
