First let me say the reviews on here scared me a bit. When I got there it was the total opposite. The staffs were great. The food was great. The place was clean. Gilbert is very nice I got to see him everyday, he was welcoming and helpful. We were on the main building on the second floor, which was... More

I'll keep this short. Amazing scenery, clean rooms, good food (at a la carte), and friendly staff. The buffet was nothing special but then again, who expects anything from a buffet? You are also close enough where you can go into town.

I stayed at this place as part of a group on a SCUBA trip. When we got our rooms, mine was about 20 feet from the front desk. I didn't think it was a problem until we tried to go to sleep. There was loud talking until midnight every night. What's worse is that every morning at 5 AM the... More

but a pity the food didn't live up to much. It was an amazing place and the staff were amazing throughout. The room service seemed to be takeaway food and was delivered as such which was a surprise, considering it was all inclusive and this was the only thing we paid for we expected some proper plates etc. but oh...

I had so much fun . Mainly because of the entertainment that was provided by the hotel. The bartenders and entertainment staff were awesome. Very fun !! The actual reception desk staff were not that great. We did have a few issues with our room and unfortunately they were not able to accommodate us . But other than that it... More

The staff are friendly and the scenery is very beautiful! The beach is just a short shuttle ride away, and the shuttle comes around often enough. The hotel is situated on a hill, so if you have difficulty walking long distances, and prefer not to wait on a shuttle, try to get a room by the main building and buffet... More

My husband and I stayed a week in early April. The hotels staff did the miniminal required, never going out of their way, especially the front desk. We had booked an excursion through the company on site and the front desk never passed on the message that the fellow had called to say he would be late, so we waited... More

It's a nice all inclusive resort, but not the best. Built on a hill, the beach is either a steep hike from the hotel or a shuttle bus ride. When we were there the beach and the resort was quite crowded. The restaurant's food was good, tending toward more local fare, which was nice. There was no wi-fi, but there... More

A great place to stay & play. One of the workers - Daniel Cruz was amazing! Great worker & made us feel right at home!! The resort has transportation readily available & many excursions you can book through the hotel. We did sunset snorkeling cruise, Nicaragua day tour, & river boat cruise. All 3 were excellent.
