We enjoyed our week-long stay at the resort. The food was good, no complaints. Beach was beautiful as expected. Pools were very nice. They have a decent waterpark for kids (10 and under), so-so mini-golf course, etc. Rooms were a good size. The beds were pretty lousy. Biggest issue is with the size of the resort. It is HUGE.

Stayed from 5.7-19.7.14. After sending a email requesting a complementary upgrade we arrived to find we'd been allocated block 29 which was the Diamond club. Great start! Food. Main buffet choice was pretty good bit could be hit and miss if the food was hot enough. Can be really busy at peak time and you can easily find yourself arguing... More

Only problem was that hotel was a little too big. We went in July so beach and swimming pool will be very busy in the peck season as it was very hard to get sunny beds after 1100 . Very clean.. Staff let you get on with your holiday, no hanging around to be tipped.

When we reported it to " guess service " they said they will try to fix it because the hotel was full a there were no rooms available.

Some good, some not so good. The beach is beautiful - soft white sand, clean and well-maintained. The airconditioning in the room was excellent, removing humidity without overdoing the chill. The staff, except for one clerk on the reception desk, were friendly, efficient and willing to put up with my mangled attempts at Spanish. My grandsons loved the shuttle train... More

Ok, I am very open minded and I usually like to judge for myself, so I decided not to listen to others. Not sure what I got myself into with this place.
