We just returned from a 4 night stay at this resort. While this resort is large, it is easy to navigate and regardless of where you are on the property, there is always a pool, bar and restaurant close by.

Loved it loved it. The people we're so nice on the island and it was soooooo beautiful. Make sure to bring extra dough to take tours and excursions those were not included in the all inclusive packages.

We stayed in the Royale rather than Casitas. The Royale is an avergae hotel, and the sad thing is that you fly over a lot of great places to get here. Food was on the whole excellent, the bars though were rubbish. the staff is surley, the beer is awful and I struggled to find something else to drink. The...
