4/10 Fair

The resort was clean. The staff wouldn't serve me because I spoke English. They waited for the person that spoke English to serve me, even when I ordered in Spanish. You couldn't walk out of the resort without being harassed by people trying to sell you stuff. I was physically assaulted by someone trying to give me a massage. I booked an excursion through the hotel that was supposed to be an all day all inclusive that I ended up paying triple for and the hotel and travel group told me they provided the experience they said I paid for. The bar staff was nice, but I'll never stay here again. I wish I could get my money back for the whole trip.

10/10 Exceptional

I truly enjoyed my stay at Hotel Almirante it was a great choice the hotel staff was very friendly including the staff at the beauty salon and excursion desk. The common areas and rooms were clean and it was worth it to upgrade the junior suite to one with a balcony the view of the pool and beach was incredible. The free breakfast was good there were different options every morning and the restaurants were good as well, a lot of seafood options for a great price. A small inconvenience was having to call for ice for the room instead of there being an ice machine accessible. I also didn’t enjoy the beach as much as I would’ve liked to because there are way too many vendors however the pool was nice and relaxing. Overall I loved my experience at Almirante.
