1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Location far away from the beach, food very poor, have next to my room a people drink late night and make a lot of noise. Called security to control it and no body show up, they did it for two consecutive nights, terrible experience. Bar without TV, pool with lot of people smoking. We never came back there.

4/5 Good

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
We liked some of the staff. Nestor, Jaime, Ivan, Karem, Omar and All the staff at Delta. The language barrier at the front desk check in was not good for us. They overcharged us in our exchange rate and the medical. I have to own some of that for not pushing back on it though. All in all a nice peaceful hotel that isn’t at the resort level when we stayed. The room was great but in need of some maintenance.

5/5 Excellent

Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I absolutely LOVED my room! It was a huge two bedroom with a pool on the balcony. The food was great, although due to occupancy only certain restaurants were open while we stayed. The property was beautiful, I felt very safe and I really would love to go back!

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family, Travelled with partner
Liked: Property conditions & facilities
Stayed in a beautiful all inclusive villa that did not offer room service or alcohol in the room. Kitchen was dirty. 1 fork and no paper towels. The staff at check in were not friendly or helpful. Not what I’m use to while on vacation, it was almost an inconvenience to ask them for assistance. The food was ok, and only one restaurant was open and available for dinner. The bar closest to our villa was closed. The walk to the open bar was a little far. Maybe golf carts for villas might be nice.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
The service is very good, the location and the fact of having a beach club was a highlight. I didn’t like that the administration charged us for a stained bedsheet due to a skin cut the first day but only told us when we left after 6 days. Lobby coordination did mistakes a couple of days in our dinner reservations. The “free” wifi doesn’t really work so you need to pay per device in a 5 star hotel? A really bad thing is that if you are in a guest room that has room to room connection, you can hear a lot the other room. They were nice enough to keep the other room empty during our stay.
