    I love the jungle property, it is so relaxing. When we stayed the resort was almost empty, so we felt like very special guests. I love waking up to the sound of the birds every morning. The dinners were excellent, and we had top notch service from the staff. Front desk, shuttle drivers, and the regular bartender at the Sky Bar were all excellent. Renee was especially gracious and made sure we were having a good time. Our room was cleaned and restocked every day. We spent our days on the beach where the food is exceptional and the service outstanding. Margarito made sure we were never without food and drink. The beach a La Cruz is the most beautiful in the area. Its not crowded and the water warm and clear- perfect for swimming. The property could use some fixing up and I was dissapointed that the mineral pool was not as warm as years past. However under new ownership it sounds like good things are in the works. This was my third visit and am looking forward to returning next year.

    Stay Away!

    everything advertised on website is a bunch of baloney this hotel does not offer room service and does not have 5 restaurants it has 1 mediocre buffet, 1 restaurant available daily for dinner which seats about 60 max and and is completely booked everyday. only 1 vehicle for transportation around hotel for 1900 guest! it takes hours to get to eat unless you plan on taking a hike to get to anywhere including the pool, and the ocean?... its a 25 minute cattle truck drive away from hotel. my son complained about no hot water no plug for bathtub no washcloths gees in the end we were so fed up with chaos that We ended up leaving 3 days early upon checking there was no internet service, we waited as long we could, we were not about to miss our flights due to internet issues so the manager promised a refund which now is not happening after speaking w/ reps. We paid an additional $1000 for ocean view and got same mountain few as our son. As far as Im concerned Management should be fired, no order with staff no order with housekeeping. No order with food servers. The hotel is nice but it needs maintenance and staff tiles on pool were missing walls were chipping in dining locks didnt work in public bathrooms etc. the list goes on but im only allowed so many characters Dont stay here this hotel should be removed from website

    The scenery was simply breathtaking, the location of the resort was perfect. Too bad this resort isn’t adult only. The food selection from the buffet could have been better.
