Relaxing getaway. The resort had great service. We received a warm welcome from the staff. We had the penthouse, best view and balcony. Negatives business center, lack of beach & food selection minimal.

Beautiful venue but not worth the price. Service was excellent but surprised by water at $4 par bottle . All prices were listed in US dollars but when the check came it was in pesos at 90% of the current exchange rate! Food presentation and selection was very good!
