What a beautiful place. So much shade on the beach and within the resort itself, nicely landscaped, palm trees everywhere. Beach has many chairs and lots of places to hide in shade under the trees, we have never had to look for an empty chair. Sand is white and water is crystal clear. Service on the beach is outstanding as well.
Buffet was great, good variety of food, amazing service, friendly staff. It does need a good air conditioning though as it was very humid at times and all windows and doors were wide opened.
Rooms were big, but very outdated and had a weird smell, but after a day we got used to it, something you can live with. Room service was fast, receptionists very helpful and made sure all our needs have been addressed accordingly.
We have taken 2 excursions, AVT is a must-go one, great scenery and adventure. Visit to an island was another great one, traveling on speed boats there and back on huge catamarans with good entertainment was a great experience. Beware of food once you reach the island as a few people that went there with us did get sick after.
Lots of places to snorkel.
Pool was crowded, but clean.
There are a lot of other hotels along the shore and we have been to every one of them watching different shows at night.
Definitely would go back and recommend to friends
