Just got back yesturday we absolutly loved it. Alejandra did a great job! Once we checked in we realised we were upgraded (free of charge) to a junior suite. We were on the tucan side and have no complaints. Beautiful ocean view. ( i would post photos but it wont let me). We had a similar setup as trace2013. (with the exception of a turquoise sache along with the white up front) We kind of winged the whole thing, didnt do any rehearsals and it went great. The flowers turned out beautiful. I gave a vague explanation of what i wanted ( lillies, few roses and anything tropical....tropical colors and no dark red roses)....They were beautiful!.
I will try and review some of the resort....
This resort is amazing, everyone really enjoyed it. It was big enough that if you go with a group (we were 39) there was enough room to have "alone" time (time away from rest of the group) but small enough that usually by walking around a bit you could find everyone.
I have read lots of complaints regarding food....personally we loved the food. There is lots to choose from in the buffets and they do switch up a few items daily. I just made sure to not have a little bit of everything every meal otherwise i guess it would get repetative. I would stick with pastas one day then maybe potatos/rice the other and such.
We did do a few of the a la cartes.
We went to the mexican and we did not care for it too much however a few others from our group went and loved it. Its hard to review restaurants i find as everyone has different tastes/opinions.
We also tried out the steakhouse and the japanese. Both which we really enjoyed. The japanese was tasty and entertaining as they put on a small show while cooking your food.
Our room was nice....not extremely fancy or anything but we thought it was perfect (we are simple kind of people and i guess it doesnt take much to impress us haha)
It was cleaned daily, our housekeeper did a great job. She refilled our fridge with beers, water and pop everyday (although we had been told it would only get refilled every second day)
She also would make us a different animal out of towels everyday. The night of our wedding we arrived in our room to find it had been cleaned while we were gettign married and she had made 2 swans on the bed out of towels and then decorated the bed the floor and washroom with rose petals.
Our one small complaint about the rooms was the shower. It was big and VERY roomy/nice however be aware! the water will occasionally go from really hot (i like my steaming showers) to really cold for a split second then back. But it wasnt SO bad, the first time just caught us by surprise and OUCH!
Stuff to do around the resort.
I was personally impressed with everything the resort had to offer (keeping in mind this was our first time in an all inclusive, however a couple of my guests did mension that a few other resorts they had been to had a little more stuff but ...still had a good time)
A couple of our guests took advantage of the free kayaking, which they enjoyed. A few of us took part in their daily free zumba...SO MUCH FUN! might i add I LOVE MAURICIO, he is one of the star friends and is absolutly adorable/amazing.
For anyone artsy or anyone bringing out children they have an area where you can pick a ceramic figurine and paint it. (once you are done painting they touch it up and make is pretty/shiny and looks like you bought it from a store!) This is at an extra charge depending on the size of the item you choose.
We attended the discotec a few nights (it was the only place open late night for drinks/ dancing). Everynight we went...it was not busy at all (a couple of the nights our group was the only ones in there) However we still had fun and enjoyed it!
Now the theater...
Everynight The star friends put on a show (different show every night) at 9:30. This group of folks work sooooo hard, you will see them during the day doing avtivities such as zumba, beach volleyball,bingo, beach soccer and many others then in the evening putting on shows. We really enjoyed the shows (of course some better then others but...all were entertaining) In the theater there are a couple of pool tables as well (need to make reservations to play with the front desk)
This was our hangout every evening, we would have some drinks/ mingle and catch the daily show.
ALL of the star friends are amazing and extremely friendly. They work soooo hard we were very impressed.
I just realised i can keep going and going about how much we loved this resort. so i will stop now haha
