The service here has been amazing this week. We opted for the family reserve 2 bedroom suite on the 3rd floor and it was perfect for us. The staff is so hard working, always hustling to keep the resort clean and moving well. Every morning at 6:30 (I’m an early riser) the team was out straightening out the pool area and getting things ready for the day. Our Concierge Tiara was awesome. She did so many special things for my wife who was celebrating her 50th birthday. She went above and beyond this week, even with some of our crazy requests. At the reserve beach section, Manuel and Ricardo were awesome. Our drinks were never empty and they were constantly on the move. These guys and the rest of the beach. We spent most of our pool time at the reserve pool and i can tell you that the staff there is great as well. From the pool bartender To the waitstaff, we never wanted for anything. Please don’t be cheap, the Staff here deserve every tip they get. I wish we had this type of attentiveness to detail in the US. I can’t say enough about the friendliness and attentiveness about all of the staff at this resort. The only thing i would pass on, is the premium tequila tasting. For the money spent, i had a guy read from a book, point at pictures and give me 4 shots. I’ve done these before in Cabo San Lucas and i learned so much from people who were clearly passionate about it. That is honestly the only negative thing i can say. My wife did the spa and loved it so that made my life easier.

Hotel's Favourite
This place was amazing from beginning to end. As soon as we got to the check in, we were greeted happily with towels and driven to the La Perla side, where there were refreshments and snacks at the check in area. The staff was very friendly and accommodating all around. Some of the great staff that made this trip amazing are as follows: Francisco, our concierge was very helpful; texted us every day with daily events and took care of our reservations Manuel, our waiter at the Market. Alejandro and Rosinna, our waiter and waitress and Cappella. Teresa, our waitress at North Bar during the Silent Bar night. Angelo, our activities coordinator and bootcamp coach! Dora, "Chocla-Dora, Mi Amor, Dora the Explora", another activities coordinator, motivator, and pool workout instructor . Aquileo and Delmar, our waiters at Fuego. Juan Pablo, the chef at Feugo. Guadalupe, our waiter at Mole. All of these staff members were great! Also, the staff during breakfast who graciously served me sliced avocado every morning! All the restaurants were amazing and as a vegan, I was very impressed. All 11 of my girlfriends were big meat eaters and during dinner, they made a very special meal to accommodate me. I am very grateful for The Market, Mole, Fuego, and Cappella chefs who made it possible for me to enjoy dinner with my friends. This place was beautiful, fun, and relaxing! I would definitely come back!
