20th Anniversary Vacation Okay...the hotel was absolutely fabulous! (after we got our room changed the second day, but I won't go in to that....) It was 5 star, even on American standards....I was quite impressed...and I have stayed at 5 star Hotel Resorts across the united states on business occasions such as sales Meetings, or during Market Weeks. the Hotel was owned by an Italian company and you will see by my pictures, it had a very Mediterranean feel to it...marble and limestone everywhere, and pillars and covered shops and stairways fit for a queen. What was really cool, is the hotel was GREEN....some really cool features, that took very little money, but made a real difference... -their toilets had flush buttons for number 1 or number 2. -their sinks, are set up to plug when running water....when you are done running it and want to drain the sink, you can take this water and use it for other things like watering plants or flushing the toilet.... you have to press a button to drain the sink, not the other way around... and believe you me, it was a rude awakening to see the sink fill with water as one is brushing their teeth....by the end of the week there were SEVERAL BAD HABITS that I had, that were broken. the shower had a great head, that was really strong but used little water. you had to put towels you did not want to reuse in the tub, otherwise they did not replace them...so to save on laundry water. the room had a ceiling fan along with AC....but you had to use one of the plastic keys for the room in a slot in order to turn the air conditioner on and the electricity too....it was shut off when you left the room, by taking your key out of this slot...so no lights on or tv's running while out of the room... there was also a huge jetted tub in bath area too, but when the water came on, the plug shut automatically, much like the sink, so no water going to waste. The hotel was huge, had two grandios lobbies, with shops and sitting areas all around...the place was 98% booked yet it was not crowded at all...lots of areas to hang out...9 different beaches, though we haqd our favorite one....we found it by the 3rd day, lots of pools and pool bars too.... the beach we hung out at, had a lot of water sports stuff going on, kayaks, and paddle boats and snorkeling and their boats would take you out diving too...all inclusive on most all things. the restaurants were yummy...all different nationality restaurants....but the Italian one was the absolute best and we ended up eating there 3 different times....it was hard not to. Here is one of the lobby areas with the shops....and plants and ivy and flowers and fish ponds....it was stunning, just stunning!
