Pros: Good location, great pools, friendly staff. It has the potential to be a really nice place to stay....
Cons: Vehicle wait, outside of hotel property upon arrival can be an hour or more...check-in makes you feel like a herd of animals...very low class to say the least. The only meal we enjoyed (of the 7 we ate) was an a la carte dinner at the Thai restaurant (now combined with another "theme" restaurant, both having their menus reduced greatly). There, the service was good and the main dishes were very tasty. The buffets are really bad...you can get a drink served when you first sit down but then it is hard to find a waiter/waitress for the rest of your sitting (they are understaffed in this regard). The food is bland and not good quality. The drinks, likewise, are made with 2nd class liquor and other ingredients. Is this typical of Decameron? Definitely not pleasing. Cheap, maybe, but not pleasing.
You will be hounded by resellers of timeshares- that is also very irritating.
Finally, the check-out is almost as irritating as the check-in. We were sent to the "disco" for the last part of the trip. Had to watch the guys/girls girating and practicing for "the show" later that evening while we waited to be checked out....
Pros: Pools, local animals, staff was very friendly.
Cons: Check in procedure was awful. They have a time you can enter, if you arrive early, you have to sit in your car in the sun until they open the gate. Then, it's very confusing on how to check in. I felt like I was checking in to a prison.
You cannot enjoy the ocean waves because of the rocks!!
Pros: Nice hotel and grounds,good food too.
Cons: Yes it's on the beach but nothing is nearby,be prepared to stay there and not leave the grounds! Also I had an emergency and had to leave early with 6 days notice,the hotel said I had to contact Hotels.com,,well since the hotel got paid up front,they weren't reimbursing the remaining days I had coming,so I lost out,$$
