This was our third time at this resort , and it just keeps getting better . The staff went out of there way to be friendly and helpful . Before we left for our trip I emailed and asked for a room in the beata building and when we arrived that is the room we got . We traveled with 2 other couples and they got the rooms they requested . The food was excellent in all the places we ate , beach bar for lunch , buffet for dinner and all 3 a la carte . we spent everyday on the beach , great beach to lay back and relax . going back in 2014 .
