Davidtravels stayed here on Sep 23, 2010 during their trip titled: David Travels.
I was the first one on the beach this morning. I went out at 5.30 and got my first good look at the Pacific. It was very warm! The soft sand away from the water was literally covered in tracks I took to be iguanas. On the hard sand were tracks of something like a dog or cat, but with long claws. And of course, one nerd was out there with his …

If you are planning to frolic in the Pacific, this is not the place. There is no lifeguard, and visitors are warned to stay away from rocks and riptides, which pretty much rules out the beach. However, if you are a pool person, you'll love the huge infinity pool. The resort itself is beautiful and well maintained. But if you are paying $500 a night, couldn't they give you free internet rather than charging $15?
I was on a tour, and the tour company paid all the tips, which may have had an effect on the staff. We had to ask to be reseated from the very hot terrace to the air-conditioned dining room. Some of the dining room staff was downright surly. But if you are paying the full price you might get better service.
