The amenities were nice, beach was ok, the place was huge, so a lot of walking and the elevator to the beach was working half the time. The biggest fault this place has is the food at the buffet and snack bars, if you want hot dogs, hamburgers, natcho's, pizza, pasta, then this is right up your alley, there was... More

We stayed in the "Golden club villas" near the small quiet pool and they were perfect . We spent all of our time here as the main pool area was far too loud for... More

I am surprised to see that this resort is only rated a 4. It is by far the nicest one I have been to. The views are amazing. There is a gorgeous place to sit in the evening and enjoy the view of the city lights. The food is better than any buffet I have been to at home in... More
