Honeymoon Paradise

This truly was a magical place and we are so happy we got to stay here during our honeymoon. We stayed here for three nights in September and it was incredible. From our villa, to the amazing and caring staff, to the food oh my goodness the food was so delicious, to the nice turn down service with tea and chocolate, to the property itself, this was worth the trip. The staff are seriously the nicest and most genuine people I have ever encountered. They aren’t just nice to you because you are paying a lot of money to stay they, they genuinely just speak to you as if you are the only person in the room and give you such undivided attention. I have stayed in nice places but this truly takes the cake for the gold standard in service. I really hope we get to return one day. Shout out to the following individuals that made is so special including Wesley, Liam, Rafael, Jorge (fan favorite), Alba and Tony.

Our one complaint was the website is a bit misleading in terms of our villa. We stayed in #19, and although we were promised an ocean view, this villa was a garden view. The villa itself was great (small jacuzzi, outdoor shower, large bathroom) but when we explained we were disappointed by this to the front desk, they didn’t do anything. I’ve read reviews on other people complaining about this issue before so my one piece of advice is read other reviews for the type of villa you are looking for and try and request that one.

Amazing Windward Pavilion

This was our third visit to Qualia and first time in the Windward Pavilion. These pavilions are amazing and a must do experience in a great resort. The team are always trying to ensure you have a great time. There seems to be a lot of team changes given the location and some more longer-serving team members would make a difference. A couple of times we felt rushed when dining which was at odds with the relaxed feel of being in a resort. These are small points and we are already booked for 2020!

Birthday Trip

We stayed at quails resort 10/15-17/19 for my special birthday celebration. We chose this resort because of its excellent reviews, a very special place to stay ... and it did not disappoint. From the initial phone calls to the end of our stay , qualia is impeccable!
Alba welcomes us and Scott helped us out at the end. The whole staff was personable, very professional, and just perfect in every way.
It did take a while for our room to be ready, they provide a buggy so you can get out to town and kill time. Just wish it was early to check in so that a whole day was not wasted .
Overall we would stay there again.
