    Hi all,

    Wanted to give our impression of the resort through the eyes of first time visitors.

    Our background - married couple 36 and 32 yo; traveled to Mexico and DR multiple times, stayed at Excellence Riviera Cancun and Iberostar Grand only. Decided to try something new because the aforementioned resorts are beautiful but boring as hell.

    We are still at the resort, arrived on Friday and leaving on Sunday.

    1) Arrival. I actually liked the hotel being in the hotel zone, it’s lively, went to the mall today only 15 mins away. Lobby - cool and modern, check in was quick, we were taken to our room within 15 minutes of arrival.

    2) The room. We booked the master suite, got room on second floor. Was a bit disappointed because rooms above us have full wrap around balcony and better view, whereas we got partial wrap around and view abstructed by the deck. It’s still a mystery to me what the purpose of the deck is. The room itself is great, spacious but shelving is a bit of a puzzle. Enclosed shelving and you have to play pick a boo to find stuff. The only complaint is you can’t sleep until the Bash is over, feels like you’re on top of the speakers.

    3) Food. She: food was great, 9 course menu with small portions, no complaints whatsoever. Italian - same thing. Loved the Asian place, sushi was good, they even had ramen and Tom yum. Buffet is adequate, but enough to keep you fed.

    4) Vibe. Party all the the time, people are great, no pressure whatsoever, wife was iffy about being topless but the top came off in the first 15 minutes.

    5) Entertainment. Awesome. Everyone tries hard to keep you entertained, games, contests, etc.

    6) Spa. Went for sensual massage. Loved it. Questions are welcomed if anyone is interested.

    Overall - had many concerns before coming after reading the forum. None were confirmed. Did they run out of top shelf liquor at times - sure. I survived on lower grade drinks, no problem. Is the floor slippery - didn’t notice it, but if you’re piss drunk you will slip on sand paper. Outside hot tub in our room, the stairs leading to it, are they awkward? Somewhat. Dangerous? Don’t think so. Again, if you’re piss drunk you can break your neck coming in our out but you shouldn’t be in a hot tub in that state anyway, bad for your heart :)

    Almost forgot - membership. We were appoached upon arrival once, told them we will review it later. Met an awesome member couple, got convinced of the benefits and purchased the membership.

    Any questions - ask.

    It was stocked when we arrived, didn’t have to restock it yet. Was never told about any separate charges for that. I wanted a bottle of patron but had to buy it at bash for $110.

    That’s nice. We had the master twice and neither time it was stocked. Once the other end on second floor and once the other end on third floor. Enjoy your trip! Our favorite part of the room was the large jacuzzi :)

    Love your matter of fact report and totally agree. A bottle of FB cost me $75 at Bash. I guess it didn't bother me - 4 times was the charm;$

    Based on the pictures you are on the end furthest away from the quiet pool. We were on the end closest to the quiet pool each time. Damn it I need to finish the second trip report.

    Forgot to mention, kudos to Kyle, he was the icebreaker, took this thing down to molecules. Whatever doubts I had were gone after his posts.

    I’m assuming you’re only paying for booze there if you’re wanting a whole bottle, is that right?

    I’m reading lots about paying for booze, buying shots, etc.

    Thought it was AI?
    Slightly worried I didn’t read the fine print.
    If that’s the case the B in the B&G is going to spank me due to the price tag. LoL.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    It is All Inclusive.

    Yes, about the buying being for a bottle, but under what circumstances ?!?! Since you could just keep going up to the bar ......

    ...... We bought a bottle of Fireball one night because the bar was closing and the party in the jacuzzi was just getting heated up. ;)

    Oh, and the “tip” was also to keep the pestering security guard away.

    Right. There is always a place to get a drink. Reason you would pay is if you want your own bottle for the room. Reason I asked in this occasion is I noticed in the pic their master suite, which has a bar on the balcony, was stocked. In our two trips ours was not. They told us 35% off if we want a bottle but 35% off a bottle priced at $110 that should be $20 isn’t a good deal :)

    So end result is if you want drinks in your room then go to the bar and bring it back drink by drink OR just have beers from the fridge/‘mini bar’ OR bring a bottle or two with you OR pay the expensive price for a bottle on site.
