Glad I made the reservation in August for 15 days in December 2013 issue of price. Hotel for adults, why not when you have 60 or more. We would go back.

Positive :

Clean rooms, swimming pools, the quality of the food at the buffet and the a la carte restaurants. The friendly staff even if they are better in English than in French. Beach very well. Plenty of chairs available. Nightly entertainment seemed very well based on feedback from other customers.

Negative :

The main pool is too deep for 5pi1po who do not really swim.

Positive :

Very nice hotel. We had a superior room with sea view Very clean, we came every day to fill the fridge. Pepsi, Seven-up, beer, water, carbonated water ... On arrival we had a fruit platter in our room. They also came to bring us another tray another night and also a bottle of Mamajula a local drink. In the evening we had to redo the beds if we had defeated and they were open it for the night. The service throughout the hotel is EXCELLENT!. Bar despite the fact that there were many people there came to take our order at the tables and then we had our drinks quickly. Service also on the beach and at the pool. The food is good and the buffet choices for everyone. La carte restaurant we went to the Japanese (it was good but a little disappointed because we thought there was a leader who was food before us. We also went to the steak house (if you have that a la carte restaurant to make it worth the trip). Surf'n turf, steak are excellent with baked potato and sour cream. Very easy to book the a la carte restaurants. Admittedly, the buffet is very good so were less inclined to go. There was a theme every night. For those who love the sushi there was often even noon. repeatedly Also there was lobster. No need to run after chairs in the morning, there is a magnificent palm and therefore can choose between shade and sun. Over thirty travel in the south and I can say that we were delighted. Second time in a RIU, Los Cabos last year. Truly a great experience. People are always smiling, they seem to love their work, and tips or not they serve us very well. For those who enjoy walking you can walk as much as you want. Beautiful Entertainment every night at the bar there is music. quiet resort where you can really relax and unwind. We made an excursion Country Express. was well liked. We took the half day it was enough.

Negative :

This is not really negative but as the resort is not very big, there is a large swimming pool (I qualiferais average) and a small bar where there. No vortices. For those who really like the swimming pool, for my part I prefer the beach. During the excursion really too solicitation to give tips, buying T-Shirt, CD, hats .... it gets a little tedious.

Good, relaxing place and very convenient. A tad expensive, value for money.

Positive :

Extremely courteous and helpful. Comfortable and very clean. Gorgeous bathroom.

Negative :

Quality restaurants disappointing for a 5 star. Deck chairs beach in very poor condition. No outdoor Jacuzzi: unacceptable for a 5 star. Restaurants uneven buffets every day. Repetitive choice for a stay of 10 days. Major point: wine execrable. Totally unacceptable.
