    Nice area

    Hotel is very beautiful. However, it is not cheap. The hotel rooms and restaurants are expensive, but the beach and pool area are nice. Luckily, there are a variety of fast food and local restaurants within walking distance they have reasonable food prices. Note: If you looking for live entertainment and activities, the hotel only has a lady that sings for awhile at one of the resturants. You will need to go the hotel ESJ hotel next door for dancing.

    Not a luxury resort

    This is not a luxury property - its more of a budget property. We went through Costco travel and they always recommend above average resort but this was not it. When we went the place was packed. Our room had a water leak and they could not offer us any other solution, so we had to leave. The manager we deal with: Arnold was amazing! He was so nice and that's the only reason I'm giving this place a 2 star. The staff overall seemed nice but the property isn't that great if you're looking for a luxury 5-star experience.

    Our room attendant Hilton is the best. He leaves the funniest towel decorations and is so sweet. Our room is clean and we feel safe with him in the room alone. If you’re busy in the room when he first stops by he will always circle back around to make sure your room is taken care of.

    Excellent Staff!!

    Special Kudos and Thanks to Salvador Colon, the Head Front Desk Manager for excellent service beyond the norm. I had a couple of odd circumstances with my hotel bill due to my business travel. Salvador worked through all the issues and got my bill straightened out. It is a beautiful hotel but the staff is the best part of this hotel.
