The room was newly renovated but smelled of bug killer. As I am a asmathic this caused me to go into violent coughing episodes until we could air out the room. The grounds are beautiful but if you have any diffuculty walking this isn't the place to stay. The pool area is Ok but you can't get a lounge unless you wake up at the crack of dawn. The beach is nice but very windy the 7 days we were there.
The food at the buffets were average but the service was very slow to get your beverages. The worst was the Italian restaurant, we were told that a reservation was not necessary , however that caused us a wait of over a hour. The wait after ordering was 45 minutes for the soup which was on the menu as Tomato Bisque but arrived as spagetti sauce in a bowl (horrible). The entree took another half hour and arrived luke warm. Service was the worst, as we had to ask several times for both our soup and entree.
We travel to all inclusives several times a year and in fact went to the resort next door (Royal service) for a additional 6 days and it was absolutely wonderful service, food, beach. We are so thankful that we did.
