I had one couple that mentioned it was difficult to get towels no matter how often they had requested them. The grounds were nicely maintained but when it rained...the main...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 22 November 2016

This was my first experience at an all-inclusive resort and I was not disappointed. The resort is well kept, seemingly safe, staff is helpful and friendly, rooms were nicely appointed and housekeeping did a good job each day. A la carte restaurants offered tasty options each evening and the breakfast buffet was nice - even had mimosas! Everything is within...

This resort worked great for us... if you want to find things to complain about you usually can - and some always do. The resort is a bit older and a bit dated - but that did not affect us at all. The rooms were great - large and roomy - the cleaning staff did a good job daily -...

Overall: The good things about this resort were the value and the ease of booking with cheapcarribean.com. The bad things were no wifi, aggressive staff, just a feeling of of oldness/out of date-ness and not right for our age group. Food: -the buffet is your best option; there are many different food types, made to order, great drinks, friendly servers,...
