These guys made the trip high energy with their awesome attitudes making this vacation worth the money. They had the ability to make people laugh. I can't say enough... More

Stayed here in April 2012. The resort is nice, but quite large for my taste. The food in both the buffet and al la carte restaurants were good, but nothing special with the exception of the pizza place overlooking the water. These pizzas were superb! The omlet station was the best and the chef remembers you from day to day.... More

The hotel was beautiful. Reception was very friendly. I stayed in the premium room which was a lot nicer than the older rooms ( we were a large group with 3 kids - 9 rooms). The hotel was very clean. The food was not very appetizing. The drinks were standard for hotel all-inclusive. Staff was rude and behaved indignant when... More

To start off...everyone wants a tip in this country. Everyone. You're not even allowed to take your own bag to your room because they ultimately want a tip out of it. Also, if you don't speak Spanish, you're looked at as a bother. I am from Texas and speak muy poquito Espanol. I tried my best with what little Spanish... More

The resort was very clean. Staff very friendly.The pools were clean. Beach very quite. Night life could be way better. The shows were poor. The espresso machine is the best in the morning. Some travelers were complaining about their room but we were in the renovated section.
