Arrival: Dec 19 to 26, 2008
Was late but check in was very good, quick and got a ride to our room quickly. People were very friendly. Buy a safe for peace of mind.

Rooms:
Very clean..Cleaned each day...Bring a tip for the maid, they very much appreciate it. We gave them coloring books, crayons, shampoos, toothbrushes and more essential items.

Restaurants and Bars:
We ate at the buffet and it was very good food. Very much choice in the food they serve, and the servers in the buffet were very friendly.

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
The pool and grounds were cleaned constantly and everything was very clean for having so many people around. We saw very few bugs.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
The activities were very fun, and they had many of them. They had dancing and aerobics, and even games for all ages. They also had entertainment all day and night. We also went to Ocean world and swam witht he dolphins which I would strongly recommend to anyone, it was a blast. We also went on a safarie and that was a great learning experience and the guide Junior was hilarious.

Other Comments:
I would strongly recommend this resort to anybody. The staff were very friendly and include everyone in everything. Join in and you will have an amazing time. I think this place was amazing.

The beach was alright but I am sure there are nicer beaches elsewhere.

Arrival: Dec 20 to Dec 27, 2008 All went fine , we were checked in quite fast.

Rooms:
The room was nice, you could tell it was not new but it was clean.

Restaurants and Bars:
We did not like the Mexican restaurant, but the buffet and the other restaurants were good.

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
The beach was alright but I am sure there are nicer beaches elsewhere. The pools and grounds were very well kept. We really only used the beach.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
We went snorkling on a katamaran, it was rough and many people were sick including myself, but my husband was okay.

Other Comments:
We both got bites of some sort on our legs, & backs, at first we thought it was sand flea bites, but once we were home I did some research and I am pretty sure it was bed bug bites. The bed and room looked very clean but it is very hard to see bed bugs.

Arrival: Dec 26 - Jan 2
I heard that 600 Canadians checked into the resort on the 26th. We arrived around 9:40pm in the pouring rain. I was in my room by 10:20 and my bags had been dropped off. A small buffet for late arrivals was set up in the main dining room. It was simple but certainly welcomed after a long flight and bus-ride.

Rooms:
The room was simple but clean.

Restaurants and Bars:
Lunch at the Italian restaurant was more pleasant that going to the main buffet. Smaller and much quieter. Dinner at the Seafood restaurant on the Thursday night was great. New Year's Eve buffet at the mnain restaurant was great. Staff did a wonderful job!

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
The beach is beautiful although the sand fleas in the early morning were a pain. Sitting on a lounge chair on the Hacienda/Diamond section of the resort was heaven - blissfully quiet and far from the business of the pool area.

Grounds were nicely maintained.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
I went on the Laguna Jeep Safari. It was a really enjoyable day. Being dropped off at Babba Beach towards the end of the day was great.

Other Comments:
I really enoyed my stay at BP San Juan. It is very remote (1 1/2 hrs from the airport) so for some it might not be the best option. I wanted a quiet, relaxing place to unwind. It was perfect for that.
