Good resort .. Very clean and friendly staff!! Food was on the cold side and the entertainment at the pool was lacking they need more music and games going on! Still would recommend you feel totally accommodated!

the brazilian restaurant was very nice rodizio, rooms were vere very clean. buffet was amazing, the burgers at the midnight snack bar were very delicious. I am very satisfied, a little more expensive than the others in playa dorada, but well worth it.

Booked to celebrate our 31st anniversary but have to say we were a bit disappointed. Having visited on 2 previous occasions and had great times we found that the overall quality has dropped, in particular quality of drinks was poor and the practice of allowing day visitors at the weekend changed the atmosphere from quiet and relaxed to chaotic and...

A few of the original staff are still there but all of them new and old are the friendliest most helpful bunch of people you can... More

We traveled with our 19 and 17 year old kids. We had a great time all around. Tekila and Deedee at animation were exceptional. Night shows were great also. Rooms are a little outdated with a few issues. Service and a la carte restaurant was also top quality.

Don't go and expect luxury, five star resort. Rather expect two stars maybe three. Locals ruined this resort for me. It was getting very ghetto towards the end of this vacay I was glad we were leaving. Lack of service, food was just ok and the drinks were a joke. I think every bottle of liquor in the place was...

First of all, let me say that we have stayed at approximately a dozen all inclusives all throughout the Caribbean. We think we have a pretty good feel for what is reasonable to expect. FRONT DESK Check in was smooth and effortless. Rooms are not ready until 3 PM which is very common. Just get your wristband and go get... More

Nice hotel Monday to Thursday but very under staffed on a weekend when all the locals come and stay. We both had stomach upsets while there and so did many other guests after speaking to them. Pool areas were dirty and pool always had scum floating on the top. Entertainment staff were good. Food was just ok, not a great... More
