Yes it is a big resort...and yes, there are a lot of people staying there and did get very busy...........BUT the resort is beautiful, the grounds are immaculate, the pools big and clean, the beach is a little crowded but great, the sea a beautiful turquoise and deliciously warm. Getting around the resort is easy as the trams run all over the place...so you may have to wait or bit or (shock horror) actually walk!! Man, there are a lot of lazy people on trip advisor :-) The rooms are adequate, comfortable enough, without being spectacular, but I didn't come here to sit in the room...the service, as someone said is hit and miss..... our room was cleaned well and the additional tips helped. The service in the a la carte restaurants was great and in the main buffet place it was decent. Some Spanish is a must and it helps greatly. Some of the employees seem a little unmotivated but as there are over 1,000 employees here, it is understandable a simple reality of life!!
Whoever complians about the food is just extremely fussy.......it was good and the Garden Grill and Pescador were very good......Mexican and the Japanese were good too and the buffet has everything. How anyone can complain about the food is beyond me.......the beach snack bars were great too for a quick lunch time snack. The trips we had outside of the hotel were both good, especially the half day trip to swim with the sharks and stingrays.......Kids club entertained the kids and the water park, although for smaller kids, was cool!! Overall a great trip, I would recommend the resort.........wouldn't return simply becos I like to go to new places (maybe Ssamana or la Romana next)! Great deal, great time.
