While the pools and beach were fine, the food was lackluster and the room service for cleaning and replacing towels etc. was virtually non existent. They even came in and cleaned our bathroom the one time during the week while my wife was sleeping in the other part of the room that was covered in water damaged walls.

So contrary to other comments I've to say that I've appreciated the small renewed Villas of the resort. Yes they are a bit far (1.2 KM measured with my iphone) from the main beach, but firstly it is a nice walk (or if you are lazy you can get the Golf kart passing by every 5 minutes) and secondly they...

My husband and I just returned from a vacation here. We had my teenage daughter and her friend along with us. After reading the horrible reviews, we decided to take our chances and try this resort. If you are looking for a 4 star resort or more, move on! Here is my breakdown of the trip: Hotel is on the... More

Couldn't believe so much was included in the price.Great food always could get something to eat even late at night. Great pizza bar at pool. Love the pool swim up bar.... More

The hotel was a good experience. The drinks and foods were not so good but the place and the beach were very good. I don't know why, but during the day the hotel was very busy and confused. On the next time I'll choose another hotel even if I spend more.

I had a great time. The food was great, the shows were amazing, and the rooms were nice as well. But my favorite thing about this resort was the staff. Especially " Monkey." He works for the animation group, and does such great work. He's funny, helpful, and very caring. The hardest part of leaving, aside from the estonishing aspects... More
