We enjoyed Ocean El Faro for my birthday. The staff upgraded our room to view the ocean! Food was excellent as the service from Angel & Luis at the beach restaurant. We enjoyed the swim up bar with drinks of the day and Jeresen & Pedro (excellent service) as well as Manuel at the lobby bar with the best Espresso martini. Entertainment daily with fun prizes and energy from Wanda, Joasen black pearl and Franco , Ruben and of course great music. We avoided the “privilege” tour as it wasn’t something we were interested in. Room service was great as well. Lots of sanitization and gloves/masks at all times. 🏖🏖🏖🏖😍🏖🏖🏖😍🏖🏖❤️❤️

Hotel's Favourite
Me and my partner stayed for 5 days from 23rd May 2021 in a privilege room. We had our own check in desk which was quick and efficient. The covid checks and safety were impeccable, constant cleaning, staff always in masks and plenty of hand sanitizer around. The restaurants were good, though the food was disappointing sometimes. They were being run on skeleton staff so we did have a wait on some occasions but we were happy, it wasn't the waiters fault. The hotel itself is so very well laid out, we love staying here, there are so many amenities - love the bowling option as well as the lazy river and separate kids pool. always a mountain of sunbeds to choose from. The beach is not the best if that's your looking for. on our stay it was during the very heavy seaweed season but they were working so hard to fix/clear it, you really cant complain when its not something they can control. We LOVED Alejandro at the Sports Bar and Kelvin at the Beach bar. they were amazing. Also the young guy at the privilege bar at the beach, he made the BEST Passionfruit Margaritas! sorry I didn't get his name but he was great, bring drinks constantly and always keeping busy (even with so little customers) We have stayed here twice now, NOV 2019 & May 2021, privilege and not, though very different times, both would make us come back again. Truly love this hotel, the layout, the staff, the entertainment -even limited during covid - we still had a wonderful time. We will for sure be back again.

Restaurants Route 66- Decent, but nothing special, except for their avocado entree (amazing) Bluemoon- Never went, was a line and strict clothes policy Mexican- Good Italian- Delicious Sakura- Went three times, was good, try the banana flambee dessert Bars Long time ups, must wear a mask to be served, only one bartender. Not the greatest selection of drinks, they don't know they own menu and everything is now with a QR code so you need your phone to be able to see any of the drinks- and then show them the ingredients. Beach Nice beach, they don't go above and beyond by sweeping the chairs free of sand at night for the next day. Lots of seaweed this time of year, but they kept it clean. To the left of the beach there is a cove which is alot nicer to swim in and less waves. Rooms Clean, nice and comfortable. Offer soaps and all kinds of options if you forget to pack anything. Building 6 had an amazing cleaning lady. Building 1 not so good. I switched rooms half way through the stay with a friend. The showers have sharp pieces left from when they set up the tiles the little spacers were cut off and i cut myself in the shower. Service Decent, but alot of times the buffet area you had to chase for utensils or even to get water. For a 5* it lacked a bit there. Food Great selection, no complaints with the buffet. Always lots of fruit too which was nice. Pools Clean but strong chemical smells in certain parts. Pool Bars are NOT open to sit and be served. Due to covid. Shows In the three weeks I didnt bother to see one. They were outdoors and from what I heard good. Bingo every night and some kids show. If you're in building 6 and 1 it's very loud at night as the show is outside, consider that if you have young children or want to sleep early. Alot of smokers there, also alot of Russians who smoke and don't seem to care who's around. Not so fun sitting by pool or beach with that. Grounds were clean and well kept. Doctor on site was nice, needed them twice and was happy with service. PCR test was a nightmare, get there early! We waited 2.5 hours in line and got our results late. They need another person to help pay and fill out paperwork. One person and 15-20 ppl waiting in line for hours is ridiculous. They have events in the day and no one knows about them. They need to advertise on the property rather than just one sheet at the lobby (front desk). The night market staff that come twice a week harrass you, I had to walk around the building to avoid them. You must wear a mask in the restaurant and a glove to collect your food. No one monitored this past the front door giving you a glove, but I felt they did a good job overall. Kids Club CLOSED - wish we knew this. As it was on their site. Watersports There are none, nothing on the beach. No paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear, nothing. And no seadoo or boat in the event someone is drowning, not sure how they will get to them. Overall great place, I would go back.
