    Great hotel - Some staff gaslight guests

    The good: The place looks like paradise. Food & drinks were accessible everywhere you went. The cocktails were on point! The best entertainment was the silent disco! MEAT- best restaurant. Limbo - best fish. Shout out to Juan Eduardo at MEAT restaurant. Diana at the front counter, Santa at Portofino Internet conexión was exceptional throughout the compound! The best entertainment was led by a guy name “King Kong” who spoke great Spanish, clear English, and French. The Bad Most desserts were flavorless. Entertainment: poor for the sober, perfect for the drunken. Breakfast pastries were hard/flavorless. Red & white wines were water down. Coffee shop had bad coffee and rude baristas. The activities on the website rarely match what the hotel has planned. Hotel promotes dangerous stereotypes: Entertainment sup, Julio, kept calling the men dancing with him “monkeys”, he pretended to speak English by speaking really fast. White guests made fun of him left and right, he made some sort of bird sound that made the men call him monkey. His inability to understand English created the perfect scenario for men to say racist things to him without notice. Japanese restaurant was also feeding stereotypes about Asian people, the “chefs” would tell us he was serving us Cat when serving Chicken, monkey when serving Meat. Ugly: A bike ride on Tuesday was supposed to start @10:30am. Guests were to meet in front of the gym. We arrived @ 10:10am at the gym with four other couples. @10:30, we asked Abel (gym staff) when the ride was happening. He called the front desk and assured us someone was coming. We waited, other couples left. @11am, we were told to meet the a staff member by the front desk. Once there, We were told we needed to wait back @ gym. Tired, & eager 2 go back 2 enjoy our vacation, I went to share our experience/frustration, hoping it doesn’t happen again. The front desk staff went 2 get the entertainment supervisor. He came w/attitude. Staff told him why we were there, he proceeded 2 say that he himself had sent out the group for a bike ride @10:30. We told him that was impossible because we were there, waiting. He said that WE had not read the information correctly. He proceeded to gaslight me, it was our fault!. My friends joined me, he found himself cornered so he cut off the conversation with the promise that he himself would take us on a bike ride the next day. And the next day He did not show up. When the clock marked 10:45, I went to ask for his supervisor. The lady at the front desk, Diana, told us that she would find the manager, whose name is Julio. When Julio arrived I shared the story and asked him for the name of the supervisor so I could leave a review. Julio kept me asking the name for over 3 minutes. He kept trying to disuade me to sit and talk. After I told him that I would then use his name to say he wanted to protect the supervisor, he told me his name was Julio 2. He offered a 25 min massage for the trouble, I told him that I would not take it unless my whole group, who also went through the same ordeal, was also given the same “gift”. He did give us a gift certificate, that eventually ended up being charged to our accounts! As we were leaving, Julio 2 showed up, complaining about traffic. He told us he would take us then. On his way, he grabbed a guy name Felix, and told him to give us a bike ride. Evidently Felix was not expecting this task, he had not done it before. Felix did his best. No one ever showed up to pick us up, we had to walk back to the hotel, in the sun, at noon. So, I would not rule out coming back. For the price, I actually got what I went to get: rest!
