Kids stay free? We didn't get that promotion.... are you booking directly with the resort?
My twins stay free but that is because they are under 2
I picked this place BEFORE I knew of anyone that had been there before. I know Sarah ( coworker) went every year but I couldn't remember what resort.
I originally had the Hard Rock selected.... but they would not allow a group booking. So I had to go back and start the process over, at the time I read a lot of great reviews and the jacuzzi in each room was a plus. Some of my guests have never been south before so I wanted to give them more than just a basic room, and I wanted a smaller resort but lots of options....
The Hard Rock had every option but it is a huge resort so it worked out better in the end. I also have since learned the water and beach is much better at Now Larimar :-)
To ease your mind... Go look at the "bad" reviews for the Majestic Elegance... that resort is beautiful and very expensive but you will still find ppl complaining of food, bad rooms..etc..
Anyone I spoke with that has been there never had a bad thing to say about it.. but there are people out there who didn't like it and will never be back.
I don't expect the staff to speak perfect English.. I know that the service will be different as that is their way. They live a relaxed lifestyle and I try to as well when on vacation.
The food.. well food is hit or miss anywhere you go. .. Weather is no ones issue..
If I don't have a remote that works... I will go to the beach and not take the time when I get home from my busy life to complain about a remote! haha
I laugh at some of these reviews... there was one I actually sent to friends it was that laughable... Complaining because of the shampoo provided and they didn't get a shampoo upgrade.. seriously bring your own!
