    Unparalleled Accommodations, Dining, and Service

    We stayed for four days from May 16th to 19th. The rooms were luxurious and immaculate, and the food was exceptional no matter where we dined. The staff's service was also outstanding. Surrounded by the stunning Caribbean environment, this hotel offers top-notch quality in every aspect. The concierge was particularly impressive, arranging numerous personalized experiences beyond the usual scope to ensure our trip was stress-free and enjoyable. It truly felt like a special place, and we would definitely love to visit again if given the chance.

    Special Thanks to the Staff at Bistro Restaurant

    I have travelled to this resort numerous times; most recently for 6 days in November, 2023. On this most recent trip, I had just had a medical procedure, and I was very limited in what I could eat. Although I stayed in the Zen Resort, I travelled to the Bistro Restaurant in Grand Class for breakfast and lunch every day. When I told the staff at Bistro about my dietary restrictions, they happily made me special off-menu meals every day for my entire stay. Special thanks to Claudio (manager); Karina (hostess); and waiters Francisco, Fernando, Jose, Edgar, Isaac and David. You guys really made my trip!!

    Magical Birthday Celebration

    The most beautiful room overlooking the ocean. Service was first class. Thank you Rosario for taking care of us during our stay. If you are traveling with adults only I recommend staying in the adults only section. We look forward to coming back again!

    Best vacation ever!

    Absolutely phenomenal. I spent quite a bit of time searching for where I wanted to spend my birthday and a trip with my boyfriend as we travel a lot, we are often hesitant with all inclusive resorts because the food isn’t great. I would truly give this entire trip 10/10 because the food was amazing but that wasn’t even the best. The best the SERVICE! Carolina was our personal concierge and she went above and beyond daily to make sure we were taken care of. I miss everyone so much! The staff everywhere was so welcoming and happy and every single day and meal they were giving me birthday gifts and dessert and singing to me the most personal hospitality I’ve ever had at a resort or hotel. I recommend doing the bike tour and the SPA! WOW! 10000/10 at the spa- hydro massage and a massage- so incredible I felt like a princess. The views and the rooms were incredible and modern. Everything was just so perfect, we cannot wait to come back with family soon.

    World class service with a smile

    The staff here is absolutely incredible. Our concierge Jessica was very kind and assisted us without hesitation to make sure we had the best experience. The spa here was an experience unlike any other and made us feel immediately rejuvenated. I highly recommend, even if it’s not your usual go-to! This was our first time here and we look forward to coming back again!
