Pool Bar service is embarrassingly bad for a resort of this scale

We’ve been a fan of the San Luis pool bar for many years. This is the first time we’ve been back since the remodel. The pool is busy .. understandably in August. The service is horrible. There are only 2 people behind the bar. Gerardo is busting it. The women, dressed in skimpy attire, don’t seem to care. They’re not here to serve. They’re here to look good. And that attitude is evident in their bad service. Angelique could care less. The San Luis needs more staff at the pool and they need to hire people who represent customer service. Especially at the prices we’re paying for food and drink.

Our second stay and we are still amazed and loving it!

We had stayed for the first time for our anniversary in January. We loved the Club 10 room and the heated pool.

We returned to The Island for my birthday and booked at another very nice hotel. We were happy there but wanted to extend our week on the island so we decided to return to the San Luis. We are so HAPPY that we did!

David Gwin assisted us with our booking and he went above and beyond. We stayed on the 16th floor in a corner suite. What a great view and beautiful room. Clean, comfortable, and spacious.

The pool was an active place and we had so much fun people watching. A tiny problem with an aggressive man that may have had a few too many and the pool manager handled it with professionalism and style. I am so sorry that I do not remember the name of the young lady that waited on us at the pool. She was very busy and hustled the entire time. She took care of us the same as if we were in the cabanas. The pool bar staff were on point and hustled all night.

There are several nice places to stay on the island. We have been treated well almost everywhere we go. The big difference at The San Luis is the staff that goes above and beyond! From the minute you arrive, the valet staff swarms your car and it stays at the same level of service until check-out. Everyone you pass has a warm greeting, even the man vacuuming the carpet in the front hallway. If you pass an employee in the hallway...."Hello sir, hope you are having a great stay." Every single hotel will have minor problems. The difference is how they are handled. The (VERY) minor problems that we had were handled so well that we will always make this our go-to home base. David Gwin is a superstar among a staff that shines. The Spa and the pool staff work very hard to make even the budget-minded travelers feel important. That is what is most important to us. We are definitely not the 'high-end' type, but we were treated like royalty.

Thank you to the hotel and the staff. We WILL be back!
