We check in with front desk before 3 and we are asked to return at 3 for room and keys. We return and still no room is ready for us for another hour. The hotel was kind of empty to me; I am assuming due to COVID and it being hurricane season. They should have more than one room ready. After a long flight all I want is my room.

Nothing really unique, just your typical all-inclusive resort. The food was really disappointing. Buffet was average. The Japanese restaurant was terrible. Italian restaurant was OK. No really authentic Mexican food.

The property has a lush tropical vibe,very serene

The food was pretty good, beds were comfy, staff was were friendly but front desk staff needs to communicate with their guests. Our room Was in the worst area. We could hear everyone at the downstairs bar and when other guests would pass by our room. Made it very difficult to fall sleep or even sleep in! A huge bummer while on vacation without my children! There wasn’t anything to do at the resort. Making reservations for dinner was a horrible! If you weren’t down there BEFORE 9am (when they started taking reservations) everyday you would hav a difficult time getting a time for dinner then would be rushed through your dinner. The front staff never followed through with any “promises” or did they follow up with us on any of the issues we were having with our rooms, showers and Air! I won’t be staying there again. Some of the dinner staff at the buffet was very rude to my friends and I. My girlfriend was wearing a halter top and the hostess almost didn’t let her in saying she couldn’t wear a bathing suit to the buffet although we explained it was actually a shirt while someone was walking into the buffet in a bikini with a sheer “coverup”. Ridiculous! We are in Mexico during the SUMMER at a resort, what are you suppose to wear?

I have never ever gotten so many no answers anywhere. Very disappointing. Did not go out of there way to make us happy at all. Terrible customer service!!

The property is beautiful the staff is great. The food in the buffet was cold and there was not much variety.

The property is in good shape and the views are truly amazing, immaculate in cleanliness and continued to be throughout our stay. The staff, wow! They took such great care of all our wants and needs. The food is very fresh and tasted like it was cooked by a 5 star chef.

Customer service , excellent. I enjoy my stay. Thank you all

I like the size of this resort. Not too big and usually not as noisy.

Everything and everyone was nice and super welcoming

Horrible!! Will never stay at this hotel, first of all when we arrived at the recepcionest did not give us any information about the restaurants and when we went to our room the pillows smelled pretty bad. I understand that becouse of covid they have to take measurments, but really we have to reserve inorder to have food that is so pathetic im on my vacation and i have to know what time im gonna eat, at the Olivos we lost our reservation and went and the guy didnt let us in , horrible experience and buffet foot is nasty and very dry and old

More complaints than praises. First being that they were incredibly unaccomdating for both my group, as well as the group that was checking in before me. (They had a handicapped grandmother who needed a handicap room and they were apparently already given to others who were more handicapped than her). I had asked for a King bed room over a month away for a special trip for my birthday. They did say right away they may not be able to guarantee it the day of, just depending on what's available then and when we would be arriving. We arrived way before check in time the day of though, and still could not get the King bed room we had asked for. But what was more disappointing was that not a single staff member could even acknowledge it was my birthday. I wasn't expecting some mariachi band to appear and sing to me, but a simple "Oh we see here in your notes and on your passport that it's your birthday today, we are so happy you are here celebrating with us", would have gone such a long way. So after a bust of a first day and birthday, things didn't improve much. The room we did end up getting had ants everywhere. 1 of the dinner reservations we made for Tokyo was made under someone else's room, the waiter never even came to take our order after 30 mins of waiting so we walked out, and one night at 2:50am got a mysterious phone call that awoke me so suddenly I was hysterical in tears the rest of the night because it was so triggering for me with my PTSD. Would not recommend!

Small property, friendly staff! Good food! Beautiful beach!

It was an okay place to stay. The limited number of times you can eat at the upscale restaurants was an interestkmg concept.

the staff and property were excellent! The all-inclusive food can get boring but it's still good! Try the moonstruck cafe across the street from the Occidental- best breakfast!

Staff was the best I have ever encountered at a resort in Mexico. The beach is beautiful and the food was delicious. The only con is there was construction and I woke up every morning to it and it was loud. I was unaware if it and they didn’t offer earplugs. They should of gave us some massages or something to compensate for the noise. I wouldn’t have booked the hotel had we known about the construction. I would go there again minus the noise.
