Rooms were average, I'd equate them to a motel anywhere in the US or Canada. Basic Bed, LCD TV but poor tv reception. We had higher expectations given its a...

On weekends local people come to hotel and it becomes a disaster on the beach and in pool. Huge lines up in canteen. Emergency service $100 for 7 minute...

The rooms were beautiful clean and maid services was excellent. The food was just ok, the kids club was ok. Beaches in the caribbean are always good, this was not extraordinary however. The pool was ok-a swim up bar i didn't even bother with because the alcohol was of poor quality. There was one jacuzzi and one kids shallow pool....

Food wasn't as bad as some of the reviews. It wasn't the greatest either. Had no hot water for 4 days and was ignored until I demanded the maintenance person follow me to my room to see that there really was NO hot water coming out at all. Moved to another room, NO hot water there either. Not a drop....
