Stayed here on a timeshare exchange March 4th-11th 2011.
Check in was easy. They tell you right up front that they clean the room once during your stay (They do bring towels and TP most days, however).
Resort was empty, I think people own down here and probably don't come very often. The pools were always clean. Both bars were generally setup but normally had no one at them. I felt bad for the bartender/cook. The drinks were normal priced but the food (tacos and omlettes) were way overpriced at $4 and $6.50 each respectively. The staff was very friendly though which made it better.
Everything was always clean, grounds crews were always working and keeping grass cut and watered.
Views were incredible of the arch and at sunset, there were constantly buses coming in and out with tourists to see the view. If you can make it up to Sunset Point or Sunset Da Mona Lisa at sunset, that is a must. Great staff.
There are two close beaches in walking distance. Monuments and....Cabo Bello? Monuments is rough and good for surfing/exploring. Cabo Bello is calmer but rocky and good for snorkeling. There are palapas there but you must BYOB and chairs/food/towels/everything.
Our only real complaints:
They use real keys to unlock the doors. If you lose them i'm sure there is a large fee. They only had 3 keys on the property for our room, and we had all 3. One night a small group came back and forgot a key and resorted to banging violently on our door to wake someone else up to let us in.
It isn't close to town and taxis in all of CSL are absolutely ridiculous. We bargained down to 200 pesos for 6 almost every time but they generally wanted $4 usd per person. The last few days we hiked the drive up to Hwy 1 and paid 8 pesos for the colectivo. That is roughly 60 cents folks. The colectivo passes Villa Serena and Cabo Bello then circles back towards down. Just tell them where you want to get off before you start to head north into downtown too far. This worked GREAT.
The Wifi only works in the reception area and is fairly slow.
We saw the prices for if we hadn't done an exchange and they were quite high for the location and level of service.
An entire case of bottled water was stolen from our room.
One day for about 16 hours we had no hot water.
The previous two were big for us.
