Intercontinental- Presidente is a nice fading upscale hotel - after check-in we were IMMEDIATELY directed to a desk to sign up for sales pitch to their vacation club in exchange for breakfast and a 24 hour car rental. The ""club"" gives you a room triple the size and double the ammenities (two sinks, bathtub, sofas & chairs) of non-club members who pay triple the price for a VERY average room. We didn't know that the free breakfast included the company of the salesman. The ""club"" category room is very nice, but was not available for us as non-club members even though there were several available. The room we paid quite handsomely for was not adequate for three people. Staff is very friendly, english comprehension is marginal. Food is delicious. Plastic bar glasses observed simply being rinsed off and reused. Beach lovely. My son & husband obtained their scuba certification right on site. Seems to be a fun family place with lots of little children. Older children kept us up several nights playing beer pong below our deck. Desk was responsive with each phone call made about the yelling and screaming throughout the morning hours. We paid a decent amount of money for a very marginal room. Members of the vacation club pay less than we paid and get a room triple the size and double the ammenities. The knowledge of it all put a little damper on our vacation which was important to us because our college-age son wanted to go with his friends! I'd recommend the place - the spa was great - again, if they can't read or understand english, they probably don't understand your health issues - point ! If you are not a member of the vacation club, try to pay about $.
