An ordinary all inclusive hotel complex. Well tended with no garbage or tree branches laying around. A couple of a la carte + a buffet restaurant. At first you find lots of different stuff to eat, but as the vacation progresses you'll find that much of the food tastes the similar. Nice and clean rooms.

This includes all areas; rooms, lobby, restaurants, grounds. The beach is exquisite. The pools follow sort. The staff were fabulous and went the extra mile to be kind... More

place was excellent, the staff keep the place in incredible shape! They dealt with all the screw ups that were created by our travel agency (Travelocity).

Huge resort, with good food- lots of choice at the buffet, and reasonably friendly staff, but a very busy, crowded resort- no private spaces! Forget the restaurants- very mediocre, stay at the buffet! Surprisingly a few things were cooked very well, such as a roasted pork filet that was served medium rare, and we actually got some nice rare steaks... More
