The resort is somewhat small, but neat and clean. The rooms were average, but comfortable. The pool area was very nice and the beach was just a few steps from the resort. The food was average, but plentiful, but there were several restaurants that you could take advantage of. A couple that were close, across the street, were Angelina's and... More

it was everything we expected. Very much an American resort. Lots of drunk Americans. The biggest complaint we had was the lack of inclusivity. There was no 24 hour food or mini bar service. Everything was extra. They need to learn to charge $20 more and make everyone not worry about anything 24 hours. I'd never recommend this place as... More

The pool with a swim up bar and also as a sit down shade area is delightfull. The people working the bar are great. One of them was there seven years ago. I... More

Great bang for your buck in Playa Flaming. The service was amazing, everyone was very friendly, talkative and helpful to help in any way. The pool area was great, large pool with a swim up bar. The beach area was nice, just across a walkway, soft sandy beaches. If you have children(which we dont) they have a small play area... More

This place has the best kids pool ever. Is is totally covered so no sun burn. Adults pool is also awesome with a swim up bar. The ocean is like bath water and was perfect for body surfing and snorkeling. Just depends what time of day you are in the ocean. We only ate breakfast at the resort and it... More

All staff are very friendly, hotel is very clean and updated. Pool is great. A very good breakfast buffet or menu for a very reasonable price. I... More

We stayed there over the Christmas to New year week so the resort was at capacity, as a result we found they were understaffed for the busy season, in particular at dinner time. We did the all inclusive and I would not recommend that option. We had a large group and it took forever to order anything off the menu.... More

We really enjoyed our 10 day stay. I had read all the reviews here and so knew what to expect. Am I saying it is a 5 star hotel? No, but the service and value are there in a personal way. We had arranged for Ecotrans to transport from the airport. We were warmly greeted by 3 representatives, driven by... More
