My Wedding - Unforgettable experinece at the HEART

It really should not have taken me this long, however, the fact that it is still fresh in my head is enough to conclude that the experience made an indelible mark on me. My wife as well. On August 5, 2009 Our wedding reception was held at the heart hotel. The service was second to none. The staff were most professional and efficient. Meals were on time, Servers were courteous and helpful. Even though we paid the decorators and all, the hall was picturesque and gave a great ambiance. There were a few glitches with the electricity, however, the overall experience was great. The rooms were beyond our expectation. Breakfast was great. Every now and then we look back at the picture of the food. T'was soooooo good. My wife and I can't wait to visit again and stay a few nights. It's quiet, friendly inviting atmosphere just keeps inviting. Runaway bay heart, you guys are in my HEART. See y'all soon. Ajuno JS.

BE AWARE !!!

We need to warn you. My girlfriend and I bad made bad experience with this hotel with regards to billing and safety, We like to advice you to please ALWAYS check your Bill when dining at the hotel restaurant. More than 3 times we were way overcharged, of course I did my math and figured it out fast. Secondly please be aware to lock all your personal belongings before you leave the hotel. We strongly advise you!!!!!! While dining at the hotel restaurant our cash and blackberry was stolen from our room. So far nothing has been replaced, no correspondence from the Hotel etc. Would not recommend to stay at this hotel. When dining it takes FOREVER until food is served.

Very family friendly

The Runaway Bay Heart Hotel was the ideal hotel to stay in when visiting this area. There were lots of attractions nearby. The room had a tropical look and feel to it. The balcony had a beautiful view, especially at nights. The dining room is right by the pool, so after a meal you can just go chill and relax. Their staff were very pleasant and courteous. Beautiful Hotel overall. Difinetly stay there again and again.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

There were many family owned eating spots nearby. About 30 minutes away there is a big water falls, where you and your family can hang out by the beach or climb up the falls with a guide. In the other direction are a couple of public beaches were you can park up on and chill. There are caves and mountains to be amazed in.
