After planning a vacation for an entire year, I finally chose this Resort for various reasons. The pictures I found on Expedia were beautiful! The rooms, the beach, pool, everything! As soon as I stepped into the front lobby I could tell my vacation was not going to be as great as I thought! After having waited 30 minutes to... More

Pros.- Beautiful clean beach. Friendly employees at bars, restaurants, buffet and housekeeping. Lobby, grounds and rooms were clean. Entertainment and staff activities were good. The shows are good. Cons.- First day, no help with the luggage (totally ignored, I guess due to lack of luggage carts and the bellboys don't want to walk the huge walk, we had to take... More

We were placed in building 26 so we were in the middle of the resort. I would recommend this because beach, pool, and... More

By far the worst hotel I have ever been to. The food was horrible. The service wasn't any better!! Do not be robbed by going to this completely terrible hell hole!!!! When I complained I was ignored and played with. I travel often and was shocked at how bad this place was

Before booking our trip, I read a lot of good and bad reviews so I figured I would go on this trip with little expectations. I don't think I am a hard to please person by any means, but I was not impressed with this hotel. We booked a 5 night stay in a privileged room. When we arrived, we... More
