I'll start out with the bad, since it was a dark cloud over what could have been one of the best resorts I've been to. If the resort did anything to try and remedy these issues, I would have written great reviews, but unfortunately they get a 2 star in my book. The mold. Arrival at the room, we were... More

This hotel is a very good resort for young children. I have a 2 and a 4 year old and they loved it. There's a childrens pool area with waterslides, activities during the day, entertainment at night. The staff were very nice to the children and very accomodating. We upgraded when we got there and it was worth the money... More

We have stayed at this hotel previously. The food is very good at the buffets. We could choose to eat from four buffets in four hotels (Colonial, Caribe, Beach and ours, the Tropical). We ate mostly at the Tropical buffet. The snack bars by the beach like the Palmera and Capitan Morgan are full buffets too, although the number of... More
