Our sheets smelled and were not changed. The pool was nice but a little small. The entertainment was great because of Mike, Aldo, Jonny and Magic. Overall, we... More

Service from the beach bar was great. We had seaside massages, all 7 of us at once at it was amazing! Thanks to Elena for the excellent... More
