6/10 Good

31 October 2012

maybe a 3.5 but not a 4!!

I've stayed there 3 years in a row, and going in Jan 2013 for the 4th year. It is clean and the service is excellent. Make sure you have plenty of 1 peso notes because tips get you service and immediate friendliness. The resort is always safe, with security 24/7 and no peddlers on the beach. Lots of bars and not a bad variety of drinks. Food is bland, but as of last year some sauces were available, like Tabasco. I bring a bottle of Habanero sauce. The buffet is attractively laid out, with lots of salads and cold cuts. Fresh juice in the morning, good coffee. Wine service with dinner, and a tip ensures frequent refills.

The best thing about my stay was...

The people are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean.

The best thing about my stay was...

nothing really good to say
