10/10 Exceptional

We have traveled all over the Caribbean and this hotel is at the top of the list. Stayed in room 214 and the beach was within feet of our back door. Staff upgraded us to the lower level unit which has a pool. Great pool in the unit with a bench that you could sit in. The resort has a very high staff-to-guest ratio and they are on top of things. Pool staff manager was extremely hard working and took time to chat which we appreciated. We enjoyed the restaurants but kept going back to Positivo. Incredible view at sunset and open to the beach. The bar staff was the best. Special thanks to Karla (with a K), Walter, and Chuckie (AKA Angel). We appreciate you. They kept us coming back and the bill upon checkout reflected it. Scheduled the Omakase Dinner with Sergio. He delivered. Incredible experience. Ride the bikes through the neighborhoods and around the golf course. Explore what the community has to offer. TPC golf course on site and the food at the clubhouse was very good. Beautiful course and nice clubhouse.
