From the time we arrived to the time we left, we didn't have a single issue or problem. Check in took some time, however, while we were wating in line, we were offered drinks.

But we totally loved this resort... so much so we plan on returning. Like most people we read the good and bad reviews and chose to give it a go...and glad we did. No major problems. Other than no beer in the room...but I think that depends on what you book. No big deal. We had a favourite bar tender...

We arrived around 3pm and it was hot, we were disappointed that we were not greeted with a welcome drink. There was a waitress bringing drinks, but it was very slow so we went and got our own from the bar. Was a long wait to check in and we asked if we would be able to upgrade our rooms....

The hotel was nice, kept clean and the staff were wonderful. The buffet food was ok, bland at times but that's to be expected. However, the fresh grilled seafood was delicious!! The pools were nice and the beach was gorgeous! There were always lounge chairs and plenty of shade if you need to get out of the midday sun. The...

When i arrived not the best experience. The lobby manager Jose Carrasco made the experience so good and got us what we wanted. If you want a nice strong drink go to Omar Alcantara at the bar in the lobby by the stairs that go to club. He works after 6pm.

One of the best resorts I've been to but it was the first one I've been to with waves in the sea finally👌🏻👌🏻They weren't that strong and it was shallow water all the way to the bouey.
