Sheriton Bijao Beach Resort
The Sheriton Bijao Beach Resort; owned by Sunstar Hotel and Development Corp., was built in 2009 and situated immediately adjacent the Bijao Condominium Complex.
Standard suits are spacious and clean, with more than enough storage drawers, shelving and closet space for a family of four. Housekeeping is timely and efficient. You may want to select a suite on the inside or pool view side of the hotel. A driveway just inside Bijao condominium community is used by condo residents as "doon buggy" access to the beach. Especially weekends they race up and down this driveway with their souped up machines. You could expect to be awaken in the middle of the night by folks returning on their doon buggy from a beach party, hammered out of their minds and singing at the top of their voices. Or you could just join in!
The morning after out arrival we went to the front desk to enquire about the TV and safe function. We hadn't returned to our room 5 minutes, before the technicians showed up. But this immediate service wasn't what really surprised us. What impressed us most, was after we'd explained our problem to the desk receptionist, she voluntarily offered if we'd yet made our al a carte dinner reservations. We found this type of guest sensitivity would prevail through out our stay.
There are four fast efficient Korean Goldstar elevators, not all bunched together, but spread out through the four main sections or buildings. This decreases guest walking the halls to reach their destination. Equal are service elevators, as not to impede guests.
The entire hotel complex is smoke free, except in the designated smoking area. It's out front in the parking lot. No shade umbrella or chairs; just two butt pails. The place crawls with security, so abstinence is strictly enforced. Funny how some countries can seemingly enact laws overnight. Only a couple or three years ago we were offered cigarettes at all bars, and you could smoke anywhere. Also, it may seem a small thing, but there's free Wi-Fi through out. And it's 24hrs. per day. Elsewhere you pay US$100.00 for a two week stay.
We've noticed more elderly and wheel chair bound guests traveling. In keeping with this trend all areas and levels are negotiable, though the hotel is built into the side of a hill. This is also the first facility we've noticed to have defibrillators located through out.
There are three al a carte and one buffet restaurant. At the main buffet lunch and dinner, there's always a prime entree of either roast beef, turkey or pork. It's the only place we've found in Central America, to serve roast beef tender enough to cut with a fork. The menu is extensive, tasty and generally seems to lean to the North American palate. The dinning room seating is randomly arranged promoting an enjoyable meal. Lunch at the beach grill begins around 11:00, and sort of continues the remainder of the day. Quite a few people seem to enjoy the early lunch. At the Mediterranean restaurant when our fish platter arrived, we asked about lime for flavouring. The young male waiter without hesitation, immediately said: "just a moment." He grabbed a small serving plate, ran out the front door to the nearest bar, and returned in less than 30 seconds with three lime wedges. The generous fish entre was excellent. Dining at Sakura al a carte Japanese restaurant is in the traditional custom. Seated in a "U" shape around the grill, on counter height dinning chairs, the chef prepares a meal of beef, chicken or sea food in front of you. The chef prepares every item separately, and serves them individually, so you can custom design your course. The meal is superb, but watch the chef, he'll try to completely fill your plate. The first seating at the beach grill isn't till 7:30, but it's worth the wait. Steaks are a good half inch thick, tender and juicy, without sinew or fat. Best of all, they're prepared precisely as you've requested. Finally, your glass is continually "topped up" at all restaurants with excellent bottled Chilean wine, it's not bulk dispensed.
There are seven pools of various depths and ground levels built into the hillside. Many overflow into the lower one, finally arriving at the lower main pool. Along the way there's two Jacuzzis, something you seldom find elsewhere. If the already clear pools could use it, would be occasionally daily skimming of the lower main pool which receives all refuse form subsequent pools. There doesn't seem to be anyone assigned this job. We were particularly impressed by the lifeguard safety control of the long, high water slide. There's one at the top and one at the bottom to control use, so the lower landing pool is completely empty. There's as many adults use it as children. There are two or three 7 inch depth pools, folks draw lounges into and just "vedge" there for hours under an umbrella. Something we just don't understand, but it seems to appeal to a lot of people. Their water sports program have all the usual equipment, just on a smaller scale. They don't promote, as is common with other resorts, but everything is there if you want to make use of it, even to wind surfing. We look forward to an early return.
