Beautiful resort

Grand Rapids, Michigan

The resort is beautiful, clean, friendly staff and top shelf food. This is a wonderful vacation spot. The private beaches and activities are over the top as they are included. The restaurant choices are also amazing. Asian, Italian, Mexican, bar food and American cuisine are all included. All you can drink! In the rooms they provide you with free bottles of liquor, full mini bar and snacks. I would move in full time if we could afford it. Worth the price!!!!

Wonderful, relaxing vacation

Detroit, Michigan

We stayed in August for 7 days and 6 nights at this resort and overall had a fantastic experience. We chose and EC swimout room and this turned out to be the perfect selection - in August it is HOT and we loved having a pool right outside our door (building 7 was quiet and shaded in the afternoons). Here are some of the other highlights: Resort/Room: The resort itself is clean and very well maintained. The room was beautiful and also kept very well, but be prepared to have zero privacy when it comes to the bathroom and bedroom area - it is all extremely open. Our swimout room had a nice deck with lots of seating and shade, and we had iguanas come up and visit us every morning which was cool! We prefer the pool to the beach and really enjoyed being able to spend some time at the main pool where all the activities were (and our fav pool bartender Alejandro whipping us up some awesome frozen drinks) and then go back to our quieter pool later. Food: Many restaurants to choose from and lots of different menu options. We were never hungry and never bored. We did stay away from buffets on the beach where it would have been tricky to control the food temperature in the heat, and we never got sick. Moderation is key too because you are constantly offered food and drinks all day long - we did not get sick at all. The pizzas near the beach were some of our favs - thanks Roman! At the Excellence Club Lounge bar, Jorge made us amazing drinks all night every night. We started most evenings there just to see him, have a friendly chat, and get some yummy and inventive cocktails. Activities: Silent Disco was our favorite night activity and is a must! There is a very tame night life here and a lot of it is outside which was tricky since it was so hot. Jesus and Angel were awesome - so patient and friendly - in the sports bar which was a great place to hang out at night. Zulemy made Casino night extra exciting at the Black Jack table. The shows were ok - not really enough to get us to sit through the whole thing outside in the heat. They added some nice special touches for my boyfriend's 40th birthday (room decorations and sang to him at dinner, etc.) which was really nice - kudos to the Concierge team for building 7 for that. We agonized over whether or not to choose this resort (and joined the facebook group for it as well, which I recommend as there is a map of the buildings and lots of great advice there). We read a review that said "If you are reading this just go book already..." and I have to agree with that. If what you want is a romantic, relaxing, all-inclusive, adults only experience - this is it.
