greeted at airport and got onto bus, check in at hotel was a little slow but we were served drinks while we waited so alls good. our roomwas ready, it took the bellboy about half an hour to get our bags to our room, but again there was beer in the mini bar to keep entertained.
we had a room with two double beds, would liked to have a king but we didnt complain so was alright. the room was very clean with a jacuzzi tub separate shower, balcany overlooking the adult pool. the smart tv had all the room controls on it including internet. we brought a laptop so got the password rom the front desk and used it instead. had a room safe robes and slippers,great mini bar including two different kinds of beer, four cans of soda, fruit juice, nuts, chips, and even asprin and alka seltzer.
Restaurants and Bars:
first of all men need closed toe shoes for the ala cartes. we did four alacartes listed best to worst japanese, mexican, steakhouse, italian. both buffets were great for breakfast dinner and supper. lots of bars during the day but at night if you wanted to sit at a fire on the beach you would have to walk all the way back to the lobby bar for drinks. at night the three bars were crowded but good, my favorate was the lobby bar, they made the best mojitos.
the beach is nice, sand very fine and a big beach it just drops down to the water very fast and you can not swim in it. the pools were very good a little cool but once you got in great. the grouds were kept in great shape with lots of work on the sidewalk. they had about 8 to 10 fire pits with chairs around them, they were propane with the flame comming up thru rocks.
Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
there were some activities on resort but we did not participate in any, just vegged and drank by the pool or on the beach. off the resort we went on the sierra buggies which were great, we rented waverunners down the beach and went to cabo on a tour for snorkeling, whale watching and to see the arch. we also walked up to the town centre of san jose a couple of times. we ate at la panga which was very good, we sat in the rooftop bar called shooters and had 10 peso beer. there happy hour is actually 6 hours from 10 am till 4 pm. did some shopping downtown and felt very safe walking around town.
on a sad note we went on westjet vacations and had a horrible time at the airport when we left. the airport personel hit our plane with the stairs and they had to fly a different plane in from toronto. it was a 11 hour delay in the airport which is very small and closes at 4 pm. they kept the restuarant open till 6.30 for us but after that all was closed. the westjet people handled this delay terrible, we were never informed of how long our delay would be, just maybe 2 more hours. the air conditioner was on a timer and shut off at 4pm, no one knew they could leave and get back thru security till we were there for about 8 hours. we were promised rooms when we arived back in regina because it was going to be 4 am, but that never happened. we got ten dollar food vouchers at the airport but all that would buy was a hamburger we had to buy our drink with our own money.
ALL IN ALL WESTJET VACATIONS SUCKED
bad ending to a great trip any questions email firstname.lastname@example.org
