We found the grounds to be well groomed and cleaned everyday. The room was fantastic and the staff was very helpful. This was our 4th trip to the paradise and we were not disappointed. One small problem on check-in was quickly rectified to our satisfaction. The food and ambiance was great. I want to especially mention the bartenders at the... More

Well I must have stayed at a different resort because my vacation was awesome. Check-In was maybe a half hour wait. Maybe they weren't as friendly as I would of expected but it... More

I just got back from my 5th trip to this resort and once again realized why I keep going back. The resort is only about 20 minutes from the airport. Its larger than some but still easy to get around. The food is some of the best I've ever had. It is truly paradise from the beautiful grounds, great entertainment,... More

we were part of a group of 7 couples who booked at this resort in august 2014 for arrival on April 11th 2015. Plainly put, i have never come across such a pathetic and chaotic reception/check in anywhere in the world.

My family stayed here over our spring break. We usually stay at all inclusives and I am very familiar with many of them. The hotel grounds are beautiful but if you stay in the family area, it is quite a hike to the lobby for meals. They do a bit of a hard sell about buying into their club. This... More
