Lets start with the rooms. Toilet would not flush. Very little toilet paper. Tub leaked and facet fell off. Floor was always wet. Bar fridge was not filled up on a regular basis. Safe was broken.
The quiet pool was nice. The cave pool smelled like urine. Golf carts went by very fast and would not stop. You had to literally jump out of their way. No headlights on the carts. A little girl got hit one day. Don't know what ever happened to her.
Snack bar did not have much food. Although the chicken was good. When they served it. Buffet was the same and not good was very blan. I did expect that. No big deal. Bring ketchup and spices. No ice at swim up bar. Always ran out of beer. Got various items stollen. Could not leave anything around for more than five minutes.
There was a small shop that opened at 9 am. If u were lucky. Stood there one day with the employees inside for one hour and they refused to open doors until they were good and ready. Coffee was good in the lobby. Exchange rates were very unpredictable and they refused to give receipts. Long walk to the beach. Walkways very slippery. Be careful and always wear foot wear. Very long wait to book a la carts or activities. Bartender on route to beach was nasty. Bartenders at quiet pool were very nice. Book as many a la carts as you can. They are pretty good. All booked up unless you show them the money. Then you get a reservation very quickly. You get only what is left. The menus are useless. Always out of the best dishes. The catamaran was great fun and the food was good. Book as a group and get better rates. I can go on and on but I will let you judge for yourself. Spend the extra money and a smaller resort is my recommendation.
