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.

Enjoyable Paradise

Me and my family had a good time at the hotel the only problem was that we stayed there for few days, we needed more time to take advantages of all the attractions the hotel had. We took a ride at the banana boat, kayaking and rode the horses, and also racing cars. There were more attractions that unfortunally we could not enjoy this time but we will in our next trip, because we planning to go back there in our next vacations.I hope next time we'll stay longer. I will recomend this place to everyone that want to a wonderful vacatios.

"Unbeatable location for the price"

The location was great, the service was awesome. I have to really say that the entertainment "Animation Team" was great. There were 3 people which stood out the most: [...], [...] & [...]. These 3 guys did a outstanding job and really make the resort fun and the shows awesome. I will def. be back. Muchachos "que lo que"
