    Beautiful location, beautiful beach. You have to do a lot of walking and climb lots of stairs to get around. things were not explained at check in, no maps or amenities explained so I had to figure where things are at, meals, drinks, etc. on my own. It would've been nice if things were explained better upfront. Food here was surprisingly good.

    I would stay here again. Security was great and very helpful. Receptionist Stetany (Stepany) was so friendly. She was able to help us get a menu when our phones didn't work. She made everything stress free. The only complaint I have is that the floor in our room needed to be mopped.

    Just go somewhere else!

    Absolutely disgusting room! Smelled like swamp and sewage, in complete disrepair. Waited for hours upon arrival to get our room as they insisted everyone check in before giving anyone a room key, I only got it finally because I speak Spanish. If you don’t speak Spanish, then you won’t be able to communicate your issues to the staff. No towels in our room, as in ZERO! They reuse the paper card that holds the room key, which is gross. Pool towels are tattered and worn just like the room curtains (eaten by moths). There were dead flies all over the room, smashed into the walls that nobody cleans. Spider webs, dead flies, and warped furniture from the humidity. I’m so upset, what a waste of money!!

    Do not stay here. The customer service is terrible, the hospitality is the worst. If you want to have a warm meal be prepared to wait 30 minutes before you’re seated. Than another 30 minutes in order to get your food. They serve the same food everyday. The ac in our room did not work. We had crab(s) in our room about 7 crabs. The room smelled so nasty. The pool closes at 6 and the bar at 5:30 pm. The beach that’s behind the resort is dirty and opened to the public I wouldn’t even call it a beach. Just do not stay here!!! It is not worth it. I wasted my time and money.

    We had a fabulous time! Enrique and Carlos are the best! It was clean and the food was good. We didn't like that the pool and pool bars close so early. We would definitely stay here again!

    The location and beach were great. The state of the facilities and maintenance were also great. Food was ok, not great and there were rules that made no sense like not using one of the pools until 10am for no apparent reason.

  • 6.0.Good

    Not a 4 or 5 star resort, passable 3.5 star. Overall, the price is reasonable for the accommodation. Would I return, no. The entrance has the nicest view, similar to a movie. A scene from a drug kingpin's mansion, or a music video. The addition of a multiple restaurants and the view gave the star rating a bump. There were 3 restaurants, a bar, and a snack bar. The buffet food was over salted or bland. The desserts always tasted too sweet, with artificial sweetener and not real sugar. The snack bar was a little better. The Oriental (one of their restaurants) was very disappointing. The sashimi was old and the dessert fruit was from a can. The ginger sorbet was not a sorbet, more of a mousse. The rooms were not as clean as should be. The walls had some stains, looks like drips. The floors are not swept well, there were dead bugs all over the floor. The glasses in the bathrooms were not clean, they're usually not. The shower had a glass pane that was 1/3 the length of the shower. Water was on the floor every shower. The bathrooms are dark, need extra light if putting on makeup. There is a window on the shower wall, that did not lock. Only free activity offered was kayaking. Snorkeling was $200 for private, or $90/pp. Snorkeling was a 3 hour trip, but kayaking was maybe an hour. It was kayak around the corner, stop to swim, and kayak back. Two different types of sand. The Occidental beach sand was tan, the sand around the corner was black, similar to Bali's black sand.

    4 out of 5 stars

    The property is beautiful. The check-in and desk staff could be more personable. The food was not that great but not the worst. And the staff who work in the restaurants are so nice and will do anything for you! They make you overlook some of the negative about the food selections. The resort needs to improve the dinner booking process. You have to call at 8am to book but if you have excursion already planned, you would miss out and be stuck eating buffet. They staff do not seem to care. There should be enough slots for everyone to cover at least the “3 restaurants” so that no one is forced to eat buffet at dinner repeatedly because the food is less quality and repeated. If you like good alcohol, do not come here. Everything was bottom shelf and weak/watered down. Order red wine if you want to have a buzz. Property was clean but lacked enough face wash cloths for every guest.

    Incredible

    It was amazing. The tours were great, everyone was so nice and friendly. The grounds are beautiful / well taken care of. The wildlife is incredible and the beach front with massages, snorkeling, jet skis are great. The food was really good but the options where the same each night (might be because of covid) but otherwise really enjoyable as well as the drink selection. I'd go again for sure!
