We had 10 great days here-- love this resort! It was our first all-inclusive vacation, and it was awesome! The food was surprisingly good-- excellent quality breakfast. Lunch at the beach grill was always fresh. Dinner restaurants were mostly good-- the steakhouse was our favorite, and we also liked the italian. I did not enjoy Romantico. Sakura is very fun, but it is a real hassle to get reservations-- we stood in line for 45 min in the morning and even if you start at the front of the line, we were turned away because they were already full. After trying for 3 days, we finally got a reservation.
The evening shows are lots of fun and so is the dancing in the lobby after the shows. Loved the afternoon water aerobics/cocktails at the pool and dance lessons with Romeo and the other guys. They do such a good job making sure that everyone has a good time.
The standard room was spacious and comfortable. Our first room was on ground floor and very musty, so after a few days we asked to have our room changed and the second room was much better. We had the standard rooms, but if I were to go again, I would definately pay for the upgrade of the family/royal concierge service. It is much nicer.
At the resort, we went snorkeling twice and had catamaran lessons. We were so pleasantly surprised that this was all part of the all-inclusive! We also did the bungee jumping and that is a wild experience.
We enjoyed massages at the spa. Also had a pedicure, but that was average.
We went on some excursions:
1. Zipline/canopy tour- loved it-- awesome and amazing adventure!!
2. SAfari/Cultural tour-- loved it, and it was a great way to see life outside of the resort.
All in all it was a wonderful vacation to go with families with teens-- we all had a great time.
