We really enjoyed our stay. Our room was suitable with our own kitchenet, and balcony. We had an amazing view of the ocean from our suite. Hands down the staff made our stay! Big shout out to Jorge who was beyond fantastic, Argentinea and Jesus were wonderful as well. All the staff were truly exceptional! Some day we will be back.

Property is fine, but it is a long way from central PVR. Also, it’s very hilly, and a little difficult to navigate.

Check-in process was terrible, my room was dirty when I arrived, I was told there would be options to eat that there were not, the staff was rude and later told the other guest in my party my tip was only 50 pesos for taking us to the room although he did not carry out bags in.

Overall the property is just okay, I only choose it cause it was a couple hundred less than other all inclusive resorts near by. Walls are paper thin, I was on the fourth floor and could hear people in the pool down on the second floor till late hours of the night. They also just choose random times to stop food services even though they give a little piece of paper with all the times written down, they don’t follow that. I wouldn’t also won’t choose this resort if you don’t speak Spanish, very limited people who speak English at the hotel. The views from my room were great though.
