Covarrubias was Paradise. Set in an almost virgin setting, the resort offers peace, quiet...and fun if your looking for it.
Departure on Feb. 22/02, flight delayed, Air transat...big surprise. Made the 2 hour drive in the dark and didn't seet much on the way. We pulled into the hotel at 2am and the staff had all waited up to meet and greet our bus! Very cool.
The Accomodations were great, the rooms were spotless and the showers were great. Three single bed even fit with ease into the room and almost all had an ocean view.
The food was good, lots of fruit and fresh vegetables. The hot dogs were a favorite, the new beach bar was the spot for lunch while the more formal dining room for dinner.
The beach is the most beautiful I have ever seen, deserted, there is room for everyone, and snorkeling off the reef (10 USD) was beautiful, lots of fish and coral to see...
The entertainment staff is definitely what makes this resort. They are on the clock 24/7 always with a smile. They take pride in their work and put on a good show. Thank you to Kiko, Omar, Yonis, Arletis, Janet, Salvadore, AmilCarl, Tania (their newest member) for making the trip unforgettable.
PS: If you tip the housekeeper well she'll make some pretty CRAZY designs with towels and flowers....it was amazing.
We met good people and had good times, can't wait to do it next year. See you next year Bernie, Sharon, Cliff, Lorraine, Chantelle, Amanda, Sandy and Dave...
Thanks to Stephanie for this trip report ...
