    We stayed there about 5 or 6 years ago. Absolute sh1t hole. The rooms are nice enough, but the pool, bar and beach area are rubbish. Far better value elsewhere in my opinion. As I remember they had just finished faze one of the room overhauling, and so the beach front rooms were nice, but the balcony doors didn't work too well and the windows rattled a bit. So the chances are updates were purely cosmetic, paint, bathroom etc.
    Risk it if you got a great price, but of there are options then look into them.

    no need to. i posted here before that my buddy tried to book that hotel through a travel agent in Toronto, and she refused to sell a package to him. she said she did not want to hear griping when he came back. he went elsewhere and got the reservation, but moved out on the first night.

    On thought it might even be a little longer than 6 years ago, but G pretty much sums it up. We only had a short drive home and were very tempted, but held out for a few days. No refund and only went because it was such a good deal, a little weekend break.

    Before it became Celuisma it was Playa Naco. It is a 2.5 to low 3 star property. If all you want to do is lie on a beach and the price is fantastic, it might do. I wouldn't stay there.

    ROLLOUT - try to avoid the name Celluisma - its 1 star hole. Thats why the price is unbeatable - you couldn't go lower.

    Appreciate the info. I thought it was suspect, given the low price. I also want to tripadvisor, and the reviews were mixed. I didn't want to break the bank, but I guess I'll keep looking.

    Wanna do the POP/Sosua area, but damned if I'll pay POP airfare. Recon flying into STI, and taking transport to the area will be my best bet.
