We arrived safe & sound. Check in was a breeze, as everything was ready & waiting for us in the Lobby.
We are in building 10, with a nice garden view outside our patio door. The room has been refurbished with a new colour scheme of royal blue & white…very refreshing from the floral colors of before !!
Food is excellent & if you go away from the buffet hungry that is your own fault, as there is plenty to choose from !!
We took a walk down to what was the MAMBO & is now known as The Merengue Village. A very forlorn looking area now, with little or no activity !! A few people laying around the pool & only 1 person in the bar area…no food in the pool side restaurant !! There is a beach bar down by the water & it has beer on tap, pop/sodas, limited liquor, orange juice & one other drink mix. Access to the dinning room is roped off.
The Merengue is not at full capacity…I would say about 70%…lots of beach loungers to be had, so you don’t need to play “the towel game:” early in the morning !! The Bachata is at about 75-80% capacity & there is lots of loungers at the beach & at the pool available too.
A bit of good news…we were talking with Freddy (General Manager) & he was saying that WiFi will soon be available in the rooms! He didn’t know if it was going to be free access or if there was going to be a fee…they were still working on that aspect !! I f this happens before we leave here next week, I will be sure to left you know!!
That is it for now…hoping to catch the Michael Jackson show this evening.
