Michele, 4-night trip
Verified Hotels.com guest review

8/10 Very good

It was ok
The overall stay was pretty good, the staff was helpful and friendly. Downtown PV was a short cab ride away and plenty to do on the property. The only drawback was the checkin, we were put in a room that was owned by someone and the mixup was pretty bad for my wife and myself. It could have gotten nasty if calmer heads didn't prevail, what made it worse is the resort did nothing to make anything better. No we weren't looing but when you screw up that major you don't just let the parties you screwed over walk away with nothing but bad feelings.

Place was well kept, employees are very attentive, they respond to your request right away. Mix drinks can be better, drinks I ordered were all watered down. So I just order beer.

The best place I’ve ever stayed by far!!! Amazing facilities, luxurious room, delicious upscale food, but the best asset is the staff. Mike and Jay from pool activities, Jorge and Christian from breakfast buffet, and Elliot from de concierge services were absolutely amazing!!!!!! Impecable in all aspects.. worth your money. The NOI restaurant had the best food, Alejandro and Travieso were superb. I’ll be back soon for sure!

Overall it was good stay as this is our 2nd time retuning to the property. We arrived late due flight delays went directly into our suite after dinner. Noticed that the suite was not cleaned throughly - tremendous amount of bugs on balcony; Wendy at front desk moved us into a new suite. The inconveniences with the room was disappointing.
