  • 6.0.Good

    It is good in general, but if you have a pet don’t go to this hotel. The hotel is advertised as pet friendly but it is not. Just a few barks and you will be harrased by somebody calling you or chasing you everywhere in the hotel. You don’t pay over $300 a night to be subject to this. The pet policy you sign at arrival is not very clear on what you can / can’t do with your pet. For example it is obvious you need to eat and go to restaurants, pet policy indicates you don’t take pet to restaurant, then you need to eat so you go to the restaurant and eat, the dog barks a few times which is normal, it is a dog (small one by the way), and then you start receiving calls from personnel to make you move your dog from the room claiming that the dog can be in the restaurant if you are outdoors,...would be nice if that was stated in the pet policy for example, or that a clear pet policy is made available before you make a decision to reserve. Again, they better don’t advertise this hotel as pet friendly,...I have been in many pet friendly hotels around the world, and this one is NOT.

    El hotel tiene muy buenas instalaciones, poco personal ahora y un poco descuidado el mantenimiento y el aseo seguramente a causa de la pandemia y que solucionaran con la vuelta a la normalidad seguramente.

    The beauty of this property is unmatched. There should be more restaurants open on the resort but Criollo did a bang up job. I understand the staff due to COVID concerns.

    Rooms were modern, clean, spacious and comfy w features like iPhone charger/speaker , large tub, private terrace. Room service and mini bar were fairly priced. Nice turndown service. Used hotel bikes and gym. Staff friendly, professional and attentive. Deli and a couple restaurant and bar options were super convenient. My friend had her wedding here and everything was of excellent quality. Nice complimentary breakfast w lots of options. Gorgeous beachside location. Very classy service level. Great value for the price in my opinion.
