My second visit to Brisas, Santa Lucia, was as good as the first, and I can give nothing but praise to the staff, entertainers, and management of this resort. Nothing was too much trouble, and the happy smiling faces surrounding you make your stay so much more enjoyable. KUDOS to the staff for their efforts in making certain vacationers enjoy their stay to the maximum. The resort has everything needed to ensure your stay is fun filled. Games around the pool, bingo, dance lessons, pool sports etc., check out the pictures below. Or, if rest and relaxation is what you require, sit around the pool, enjoying the surroundings, the palm trees swaying in the breeze. The ocean is only two minutes walk from the pool, where you can relax as you lay listening to the sound, and view the beauty of the ocean. The evening shows are fantastic, so professionally presented, and the MC, dancers, singers and comedian’s exceptional….to the point that I didn’t want to miss even one show. There is also a children’s show presented nightly prior to the adult show, and participation by any child on the resort is encouraged. Nobody is left out, it’s just fun for everyone. The rooms are slightly dated, but quite adequate. Care was taken as far as cleanliness was concerned. Air conditioning good, and all necessary accessories available. The main restaurant offered a good array of food, and I am one picky eater, but was always able to find enough, to my liking. to enjoy a good meal, followed by delicious desserts. Also available throughout the day is a Snack Bar offering hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese sandwiches etc. should you need a little sustenance along the way. Ice Cream Bar available should you have the urge for a cone. Also a coffee shop offering several different varieties of specialty coffee. As an all inclusive resort, drinks are available 24/7, however it is not advisable to drink the water, so make sure you obtain your water needs from the bar or restaurant. Should you encounter any medical needs, there is a Doctor’s office on site where you can obtain necessary medication. Just make sure you have your medical insurance before travelling. From what I understand the medical assistance is excellent. To summarize, this was a trip that I would repeat anytime. I enjoyed my time at Brisas, Santa Lucia, made many new friends, interacted with those I already knew from my last visit, and thoroughly enjoyed my vacation. I would most definitely have no hesitation in recommending this location to anyone. To be honest, I think it was mainly because of the staff, their friendliness, courtesy, kindness and wonderful attitude. This, in my book, counts for a lot, and makes for not only a vacation, but a vacation to remember. Because of the staff, their friendliness, courtesy, kindness and wonderful attitude.

Restaurants and Bars:
Excellent customer service, friendly and hospitable staff, nothing too much trouble. Always a smiling face, and a welcoming smile. Good selection of food to choose from.
Beach and ocean view awesome. There is a beach/pool supervisor on duty for safety purposes.
Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Many activities to keep vacationers occupied. During the day there are beach dance lessons, volleyball, and exercise routines provided. There is an exercise room with treadmill, exercise bike etc. Pool activities during the afternoon, bingo, darts and specifically supervised games for all to enjoy. There is a show every evening with superb dancers, comedians and singers who perform in a very professional manor. Well worth attending. There is also a children’t show prior to the adult performance. The resort caters not only to the adults, but children also. Many activities are provided for the young ones. For the very young there are baby sitting facilities two hours in the morning, and two in the afternoon…this gives parents a chance to enjoy time for themselves without worrying their baby/toddler is without proper car. For the young at heart, there is a nearby club and disco to enjoy music and dancing, plus the ability to return to your resort in safety via taxi etc.
The staff and their constant willingness to help, befriend and provide whatever assistance needed made not only my vacation, but a vacation to remember. Definitely a place I would return to. As a footnote, on leaving the resort to return to Canada, I was sent on my way with hugs and niceties by several of the entertainment staff plus the manager of the resort. How nice is that!
