Super nice resort, clean, friendly staff, resort is divided in adult and family section which is great...amazing beach very long. A lots of food choices...you won't be hungry. The only problem we encounter with check in....took almost 1, 5 hr...they need to scan each guest passport and they had only 1 scanner beside that we had amazing vacation

We've been from July 5th to 19th, 2014. The location is a little far from the airport (1 h40m) but the beach is absolutely fabulous and well worth. The stuff is amazingly nice in particular Randy and Daniel at the sport club, Maydee at the beach bar, Adisay at the Italian restaurant ... but in realityall the staff should be... More

My family and I absolutely loved this resort and it ended too soon. The beach was beautiful and there is something for everyone to do. My sister and I enjoyed going out at night and felt safe on the resort. L'Anguilla and the rest of the animation/entertainment staff were incredible! We can't wait to go back.

While we stayed there we were in number 21 which is an ideal spot because you are close to the beach it's a shorty walk from the pool to. The A la cartes was nice and the buffet was good. The shows were very good and entertaining and the cleanliness of the rooms is good though there are a lot... More

Me and my fiance stayed at this hotel beginning of May, 2014. The ride to the hotel was long but not too bad. It was nice seeing all of scenery and little towns we passed on the way. Check-in/Money Exchange The check-in process was good. Although we were both very hungry, we survived the check-in and were on our way... More

My rating is 3 1/2 out of 5 Traveled with Sunwing- no complaints, its was worth the extra for Elite Premium Plus. I would recommend the pre-booking of seats it makes it easier with family traveling and extra weight. Travel Time-1 1/2 hour bus ride, the Sunwing reps(Augusto and Gianco) made the ride interesting with the information and history of... More
