8/10 Very good

We stayed in rooms 2009 and 2411 from 1/18 - 1/21. We booked through Expedia. Pros: The breakfast buffet had a great selection. Bikes & tennis equipment for two hours of use per day. Restaurants on site. We didn’t try the lunch restaurant. Bene for dinner was delicious. Our kids enjoyed time at kids club. Ice cold agua de coco. The coconut mojito. If you want to spend the majority of your time at this resort it’s worth it. If you want to go and sightsee Rio and won’t spend much time here I do not think it is worth the cost. Cons: There are not nearly enough white beach umbrellas for hotel guests to use. Please invest in more. Better beach service all around would be beneficial. More waiters a we often walked up to order drinks. The Sheraton stairs to the beach close at 6PM…I think 7PM or sunset would be more realistic. Drinks & food are a bit expensive. Afternoons were crazy crowded. Pools & pool area felt dirty.
