I loved the hotel. I did not feel the staff went out of their way to be friendly, but they were pleasant enough. The rooms were very clean. I had an ocean view room with a hot tub. The view was amazing, and I enjoyed leaving the balcony open so I could hear the waves crashing. The pool bar was a lot of fun and Kevin, the bartender, pours a mean drink. Especially if you give him a tip. I preferred staying at the beach. You can not swim in the ocean here. It is very rough and I saw two people get rescued one day. We went on several excursions. Make sure you get them away from the hotel, you are able to bargain for a better price in town. The food was not excellent, but it wasn't as bad as everyone made it out to be. I always found something to enjoy. I really didn't think the Marco Pollo was worth getting dressed up for. The plates looked beautiful but the food was not so much. I highly recommend this hotel. The overall value is excellent. I had a marvelous vacation!
