It does not look like they put a ceiling in the gym which is a shame because it gets so hot in there you can almost pass out. Overall it looks like they did a great job.

Did you notice the air conditioning apparatus on the wall of the gym? Maybe that's new? Looks good to me!

the gym has always had two air conditioning units including the one you mention. unfortunately, they don't do much to reduce the heat in the gym unless you are standing right next to them.

No theres not. It is just a simple basic gym. It gets the job done, But not nearly an extensive workout. I'm usually in and out in under 45 minutes.(assuming I dont stop to talk to C.C. at the lobby bar en route :lol: )

Used the gym 4 of the 7 days we were there. It's a hotel gym, the machines are present (and in decent shape) and there's an assortment of barbells as well as curling bars. If you're the type that has a workout routine that doesn't require moving between specific machines you'll be fine. I managed fairly well, plus it helps in hangover alleviation to get the blood pumping first thing in the morning.

I totaly agree, but there is plenty of Cerveza available at any of the five bars as well as stocked in your room fridge, although im not sure why you would wanna be squatting while enjoying a cold one when there are perfectly good palappas all over the resort.

I agree about the ceiling and the heat in the gym. If they aren't going to enclose the ceiling so the air conditioner has a chance to cool, then they should have some floor FANS running all the time. We have suggested this more than once..................................

No, they want you to wear clothes and shoes in the gym.
