I thought about visiting a place away from the hustle and bustle of the town and read about playa del este at salybia. I didn't have any regrets at all. I spent an entire weekend enjoyed the meals, the refreshing sea breeze ,tranquil waters, the enticing jacuzzi, comfortable environment and warm and friendly staff. I'll surely visit again soon

My husband and I enjoyed our stay here. Although the rooms and general amenities are in need of a facelift we enjoyed our stay, very relaxing and so lovely to have the beach right outside.

If this is the absolute first time you're going to a resort,on vacation, never been to a nice hotel, etc. ignore this post. If you don't expect much after spending over $1000 per night and have no standards, ignore this too! For everyone else, this place is absurd!! We all look for something to be marveled at when paying the...

Dear Candace A, Thank you for your review. Our main attraction is peace and serenity and disconnecting you from the digital world where you can be refocused and grounded.

Breakfast: No fresh fruit. No fruit juice - only cordial. Globs of grey scrambled egg, and just a few rashers of bacon for the 6 guests staying there.The resort can accomodate well over 100. We asked for butter and some jam. "We dont have any, and you wouldn't like the margarine" said one of the staff. Miraculously, little plastic pots...

From the check clerk to the general staff make you feel totally welcome at Playa del Este Resort. Hearing the waves break on the shore throughout the night, made for unforgettable comfort and tranquillity, as the room overlooked the sea. The accommodation was clean and very spacious.

The customer service is absolutely terrible! A site visit was done on Saturday and although they promised a prompt cost estimate, that never happened. Calls were made numerous times (and emails were sent as well) but no responses.
