I was a little afraid after we booked this trip and saw the reviews. This turned out to be one of the best vacations of my life. The hotel and room were very clean. The food was o.k. The hotel staff and servers were indifferent, but once you tipped them, they had a smile for you. I was shocked at...

Stayed here in 2006 because my friend and I had got a last minute deal. I would have rather paid the price for a better hotel but this place is okay if you are paying less than $800 inclusive. It rained frequently and the hotel didn't offer much to do. It was an expensive cab ride to go see any...

We've been going to the CV village for 3 years now, every year we bring some one, the people are so nice. Last year my wife got a little sick, they helped her sooo much, thank you. I would recommend the resort to any one, the weather is terrific, the food is good and the people are really nice

If you appreciate paradise without the trims, this is the place!! Just beautiful!!...Not luxurious, but definitely a comfortable environment. The weather was absolutely beautiful and the staff were genuinely friendly. We appreciated interacting with the locals and weren't bothered by them 'taking over' the resort on the weekends. In fact, it gave us a taste of the local flavor and...

What a dump! Room was horrible, had to change so did everyone else we met. Was nothing like described on the website, was not told about any locals having a free for all on the weekends. Food was rubbish, the same stuff everyday. The best part was the friendly bar staff and the waiters. Would never go back there or...

The resort itself is ok. The main problem was that we were eaten alive with mosquitos mainly because of the standing water in some of the ponds around the property and the lagoon. The meals were fine, the room clean, and the staff was great. It was really hot, but I guess it was our fault for booking this time...
