We had a great holiday here & would recommend this hotel to our family & friends.Even though the resort is large, there are many transport vehicules to bring you where you want to go (inside the resort) It is true that the people are soo friendly. What is so nice is that it is in a ecopark

We returned home on the 12th October after a 2 week holiday. The hotel is lovely with beautiful grounds to wander around. We enjoyed seeing coatis and iguanas on the ground and turkey vultures and Pelicans in the sky. The resort is huge, but easy to get around on the wee trains. Our room was in block 48 with a... More

This was my sixth stay at an all inclusive resort and probably my last. However, it is mostly because I choose not to go on tours and eat at buffets. It may be great for newbie travellers that want to feel safe.This resort is massive and takes about ten minutes to drive in from the highway. Its the largest chain... More

Huge complex of 3 hotels gives plenty of choice of beaches, pools and eating and drinking areas. Rooms very clean and well serviced but air con almost non-existent even after couple of mentions to service desk. Lots of refurbishment going on so should be better for 2015. Extra charge for in room safe seems cheeky at best especially on a... More
