3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities

My trip started with me arriving early to the hotel at 2pm for check in at the 3pm, which no problem, I went to the hotel bar and had some drinks to start my vacation. I then went to check in at 3:30 and was told my room was not ready. So I didn't get into the room until 4pm. Throughout my stay the only 2 elevators did not work. I was on the 12th floor, so I got some exercise. There was no wifi, not even to purchase, so that was frustrating as my phone didn't work well. Cabs were always available, so that made leaving the hotel to explore easy. I only ate 1 meal at the hotel, so I can't really comment on the quality of food. They did have a boat dock that made meeting with my dive company very easy. The beach area looked clean. The pool had tons of dead flies in it. Maybe not easy to maintain. Also getting the COVID test was easy to schedule and process.

The location of this hotel is great (awesome beach front amenities) but the condition of the hotel is marginal. One of the two elevators quite working completely (trapped 2 people inside) and the second elevator was questionable (door kept jamming), which was a bit un-nerving. Perhaps plan on getting your steps going up and down the stairs ! This is not a modern resort but the location on the beach is pretty cool and the snorkeling is fabulous. You might wake up to cruise ships docked right outside your window !

Beware!!! There is no free Wi-Fi! Even though it is advertised. It’s $12 per day per device. It’s only available to all inclusive customers and the all inclusive even has levels. It shows nice Palapas with chairs on the beach but those are reserved for “special millionaire club customers“ it may seem cheap and affordable on the surface but they nickel and dime you to death. We brought our complaint to a manager named Francisco who clearly has no customer service skills at all. We have stayed at Melia in the past it was a much much better experience.
