I have been to this country 5 times over the last 20 years. I absolutely love the people and their food. However this resort had a huge unsanitary plumbing problem which they just couldn't fix and finally after like 4 days of complaining switched us to another unit which was better but not great! The toilet didn't flush and the bathroom sink wouldn't drain. My other complaint is they claim to have 4 restaurants yet the entire time we were there (7 days) only the Buffett was open and it was pretty much the same food over and over. When I would ask about the restuarants they would say it would open the following day but they never did. Finally after complaining bec my kids would just eat snacks from their store...on the last day, they made a special dinner for us! The pool closes at 7 pm which I found very odd and the place was full of locals especially on the weekends. A bus drops them off and they take over the place. Didn't really care for that. Two more things and I'm done complaining. The maids would knock on the door at 8:30 am (waking us up most of the time) yet they wouldn't clean the room till late afternoon! And their snack store was not opened during the hours it would say it was and one day it didn't open at all! The food was mediocre at best (we went out to dinner twice which cost us about $200 American dollars each time plus cab fare bec we were tired of the same food) and the people were lovely as they always are. I recommend the paradise island tour and the dune buggy rides were fun if you don't mind getting wet! Will not return to this resort that's for sure.
