I went a few years ago so things may have changed. Rooms just okay. Beautiful beach with palm trees scattered throughout. . Mainly German and Spanish. Very little English speaking people while we where there. Food was adequate. Cappuccino and Espresso at the pool bar in the am was great! Staff very friendly but timeshare people annoying!

My boyfriend and I went during Spring break and we were pleasantly surprised to have a quite couples trip despite the timing. The 3 "a la carte" restaurants were great. The rooms/housekeeping was great and very accommodating. The resort is right off the beach just steps away from the ocean. The live entertainment was fun and there were many activities... More

Delicious food, very friendly and funny stuff and beautiful beach. Ghe activities were very well organized. If you have any allergies (gluten, etc.) don't expect much help, but you can always picksomething from wide range of meals. Don't travel with Grigri divers! They cheat on customers..

Our family of 16 stayed for 1 week. We all had a great time. The rooms reflect the age of this resort - not modern but clean. We got 5 rooms very close together! No difficulty getting cots and playpens for kids. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Excellent service! The rooms were quiet at night. The grounds... More

The overall service is excellent. The whole complex is maintained very good, especially the beautiful palm trees between the bungalows. The whole village and the beach are very very beautiful and maybe the best in the area. A very nice excursion to do is the one to the Saona Island.

We want to thank everyone at the resort for excellent service, the grounds were kept beautiful, and the meals were very tasty. We are looking forward to visiting next year or maybe at one of the other resorts in Mexico.
