“Worse vacation ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012 via mobile

My husband, myself and two kids 1 yr old and 4 yr old stayed there was it was horrible. After three days my girls got sick throwing up, diarrhea; ended up in the hospital for two days and now they got a parasite called "ameba" found in the water. So guess what the hotel only provides a bottle of water and filter water by the bar where u can fill it up, not a good idea. We started buying water after two days but it was already late they already have the parasite. It was the most difficult and hard experience where u go to relax have fun and at the end u kids get very sick and at the hospital. Sucks hotel. Before i went did research but i didn't find bad reviews like these ones in this site. Too bad I didn't read these one before. A very heartbroken mom. So dissapointed to see ur kids get sick because of others carelessness. Don't go there specially if u have kids.

“Tasteless”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

The food was tasteless and boring the same thing was served for the five we stayed, they just changed the name of the dishes. The only night that the food was good was the Dominican night food

“Allegro”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

This hotel is alright but it's closed now to my knowledge and I wouldn't stay again. Much nicer for the same price is Barcelo.
