Great, but for the surprise parking fees

Review SummaryOverall the staff was wonderful, taking the time to learn our preferences, always greeting us. Unlike previous trips, the Maitre'D did not introduce himself or check around the tables. Our wait staff was excellent and particularly nice to my grandaughter. Also the man that took care of our room was wonderful.
The kid's club was a big draw for my 10 year old grandaughter, along with the water park. The pool is not heated and was very cold, though.
Cons were the nickel and dime aspect where sodas are considered a bar charge and were extra just as alcoholic beverages were. Further, the site should make it very clear that there is a $15 per day parking fee, which is an awful lot. Finally, travellers should note that those day trips sold through guest services can be had for about half the price when you arrive in Encenadas.

Pros: dining room staff excellent, kids loved the children's program/water park
