This is an older resort that is in remarkably good shape. The grounds, buildings and public areas are well maintained. The old section rooms need redecorating inside but even they are reasonable considering the price of this all inclusive.
It sells itself as a 4 star, however 3 would be more appropriate as you can't safeley use the ocean on this beach due to insanly high waves and undertow. Forget about snokling or kayaks etc. also the food is nothing to get excited about. That is not to say the food is bad, just boring.
We took the premium room in the new section, primarily because of all the reviews saying that was the way to go as well as the tour operator brocure which sold it as "adults only". We were serinaded to sleep EVERY night with kids still crying and carrying on after 10pm in the other rooms, so It is child friendly if that's what you want (we didn't). The pools at the main resort were dirty for the two weeks we were there, but you could find shade there. The pool at the premium section was clean but the sun would tear your skin off. Down by the beach there is some shade out of the contant wind under the palm trees which was very nice.
Dining was as I say OK but boring. We found the restaurant in the old section much better than the premium one for breakfast and dinner and the beach restaurant for lunch. The Premium was usually too crouded and noisy. The a-la-carte screwed up our reservation twice. The one time we did eat there I found the staff very unfiendly and the food only margially better, so when they screwed up the resevation on my birthday I was only too happy to go elsewhere.
If you have kids and you want a cheap vacation in a relatively clean resort without any bells or whistles this would be OK but I might recommend Cayococo or Peuto Plata before this place even though it is cheaper
