Just got back yesterday. No complaints here. Stayed in a standard premium room which faced the pool. Excellent location to walk to everything in seconds. Glad we did not upgrade to deluxe. There was no need. Went to the Palace everyday by the train which you caught out front or walked 10 minutes down the beach. The resort is massive and lovely. Always people working and cleaning. Casino is okay, tons of shopping at the Palace. Overall, food was okay. Ate at Chez Gourmet, La Dolce Vita and the Coral Seafood. Disliked that one the most. Buffets had an over abundance amount of food. No problem finding something to eat everyday. Employees seem to be all nice. Defintely a language barrier. Never had to wait for them to come over and ask us what we wanted. Minimal tips help service. They remember you, even after working a 12 hour day. We didn't do any excursions. Bathrooms could use an update, but no worries.
This was really a nice R and R vacation. Please e-mail me with any other questions. This is how we learned about the resort.
