Great for the price

Reviewed 2 december, 2022

Great resort for the price. I would strongly suggest a oceanfront room, the views are great. 2 things to keep in mind, please tip the workers if you can. They work very hard to make people happy even if you don’t see it. The other is that the food on the buffets could be a bit better, so just keep that in mind.

Not great.

Attended the resort for a wedding. The property is big, too big for our liking but once we got our bearings, we were ok. The buffet was often full of dirty tables, hard to get napkins or cutlery despite asking several times. Staff were often just standing around instead of clearing plates or cleaning tables. Food on the floors, dirty tongs, lack of plates. I've never experienced this at other resorts. The public bathrooms are dirty - there are often cleaning staff around chit chatting instead of cleaning. Towel cards- we had several issues where the staff claimed not to have cards when we tried to return them. After refusing to walk away without, they would magically find some. Be warned it's $20 USD per card if you don't return at checkout and there's certainly something shady happening with the staff working these towel desks. The Steakhouse and Coral restaurants were good and we had excellent service at these restaurants. Several people in our group hard trouble booking dinner reservations at a desired time. This is unacceptable if you are paying, you should be able to choose where and when you want to eat. The Bambu bar by the Barcy pool has excellent bartenders and service. Hoyo19 is good for lunch but same menu daily. Housekeeping is inconsistent. We often requested extra towels (and tipped) and would not receive them. Twice I had to call for hand towels or toilet paper because they didn't bother to check. The room would be tidy but its clear they don't do a thorough bathroom wipedown because the same strand of hair was on the side of the sink all week. The family room we stayed in was spacious but dated. Stains on the curtains and walls, broken tiles in the bathroom. For a well-known resort chain, I expected more in these areas. The service is truly lacking and if you try to ask questions or complain, all of a sudden there is a language barrier. On weekends, the hotel is very busy so it's hard to get a spot at the pool or a clean table at the buffet. Once you do, there are several empty trays and the staff can't keep up with the volume. Bar Carey was a great spot to spend time in the evenings. The Michael Jackson and Fantasy show are well done. The beach currently has a lot of seaweed, with a strong smell. It's not nice to swim in, no fault of the resort but be aware if you like the beach.

This is a good place

Reviewed 2 december, 2022

I see the negative reviews and I am confused. Sure, the place was not perfect. My biggest gripe was the I tried four times to get them to fix the room safe and they never did. However, the food was great and varied, the staff was friendly, the place was immaculate, there was plenty to do, and the entertainment was quaint and earnest. The beds were extremely comfortable and the soundproofing was great-no noises at all at night. Loved the jetted tub on the porch. The mini golf was great. Nothing to see when you snorkel, but other water sports were plentiful. I saw customers being mean to staff but never saw anything but kindness and friendliness from staff.

Been coming here for 8 years, this was our 10th and last time. Food if very poor quality except for steakhouse and spanish restaurant. Buffet is a joke, have to fight for plates, and service is horrible, tipping didn't help. Family section bar at kid's pool is the BEST! Overall service at the resort has declined drastically, rooms are worn and dated. Checkin/Checkout takes way too long

Beautiful place but needs lots of improvement in food quality and customer service. Some common areas like restrooms didn't have air conditioning. employees need more training in customer service. This hotel is nice and has lots of potential.
