No customer focus
The facilities at this hotel are very nice. With that being said the resort does not focus on the customer. We arrived at breakfast at 10:20 AM (the breakfast closed at 10:30 AM) and we could not even get a cup of coffee. The pools close promptly at 5:45 PM with a whistle blow and a security guard forcing people out of the pool. The water was shut off in the lobby at 1:00 AM. The toilets did not flush and you couldn’t even wash your hands. To add to that we got back to our room and the water in our room was shut off. Over all I would not visit this resort again.

Poor1.0 / 5
who did they bribe to get a 5 star review?
horrible stay very expensive for the treatment we received. horrible food and service. this hotels only saving grace is the beach but that you can also get on other islands such as rosario island about 35 minutes away. we paid 6 dollars an hour for internet and had to pay to get a safe to work in our room. front dest hardly ever answered house keeping never answered. had to deal with cheap small towels. plus the hotel is always full of party people coming on tours and wanting cheap alcohol.

Good3.0 / 5
Pretty but disappointing
We just returned from a three night four day trip to Baru. While the pools and hotel looked pretty, the service was very disappointing from day one. We were not treated like guests and helped as such. There were so many restrictive rules to follow and when we would call for help often they would not answer the phone or just simply be told no. There was no willingness to want to help or cater to the guest. You are treated like you owe them something or like a child living with house rules so it does not make it feel like a relaxing vacation. The good was not good at all and the drinks were such poor quality I had no desire to drink anything but water. The rum and wine were such cheap quality they tasted awful. The pools were beautiful but you were limited to only using them between 10 and 6:30 pm. The beaches were small and the staff did not keep up cleaning the cups up so there was garbage laying around all over by midday. I would not return. The cost did not match the experience.

Good hotel that could be great
The hotel is located in a beautiful beach, the facilities are really good, the food is nice and plenty and we paid what I expected for a place like this. Our only issue with the hotel is the numerous restrictions in the schedules (pool, bars, restaurants, beach), that force you to accommodate your holiday to what the hotel timings and not your own.
