    Great Coffee Bar!

    The hotel was wonderful. Really good service, nice restaurants. The food was good but desserts could be better. Our favorite spot was the coffee bar. Gissel and Mariela were excellent baristas and super nice with customers.

    A beach to remember

    Overall very good but first little bit about us we love the beach, have no kids and don't need any special activities or requests. The beach is fantastic super clean no seaweed...you can walk for a couple miles in either direction...tons of seating never had to get up early to get chairs....there are a few shelters but tons of shade available...the beachside restaurant and bar is open every day until 2 am - closes from 6 to 10 pm for reserved dinners...has a smaller selection but you can spend the whole day there....there are lots of beach vendors but a quick no they leave you alone but if you engage they will be persistent...in the week we were there they did have people from cruise stop by once but still tons of lounge chairs. The food was overall good nice selection at buffett and clean...service in the buffet is not as good but find someone you like and they will take care of you. The Italian and Mexican a la carte were great with great service. We stayed in the adults section in a king suite was very nice and roomy but small details that i know would bug some people...a couple times lower water pressure and not so hot eater but still overall good...maid service was ok even with nice tips...no issues with noise... Pools were very nice and clean but cold so really did not stay there...the pool bar also stays open until 11 or so depending on how busy it was...one compaint there is no lobby area bar but its a smaller resort so easy to get around...there is a beer bar that looked real nice but smelled of wet carpet so ee did not stay there... Overall a nice experience hope this helps

    Nice place

    This is a nice resort. They have a large beach area with plenty of seating. The food is good, and the restaurant staff is really good. Not giving it five stars because the room is a tad run down and the drinks a bit lacking.

    Elvia y Dora - Childcare Employee Review

    EMPLOYEE REVIEW - ELVIA Y DOYA (kids club childcare) Elvia y Dora was exceptional. She honestly was the best part of Emotions for our family. She was caring and fun and had endless energy despite the long hours she worked! I would absolutely recommend anyone staying in Emotions with children to trust her with their children. My 8 year old son, 4 year old daughter and even my 18 month old daughter all took to her immediately. I can not say enough wonderful things about this woman. She truly is the star of the resort.
