I will start by saying the food was excellent. Tons of variety and everything prepared fresh, was way beyond my expectations. The rooms where clean, and well maintained. The air conditioner worked great. The staff was also great, and was highlighted by Kristina from the concierge. She recommended some really fun stuff and made the trip that much better. So... More

Pros The beach is beautiful, nicer than in Punta Cana(we took a trip to Punta Cana in our rental car). There are small sticks in the grass (from the palm trees?) and signs for sea urchins, but the water is beautiful. The weather was nice. Cons The room was near atrocious. It was very outdated and full of mosquitos (maybe... More
