So, I'll start out by saying that other people that we talked to at the hotel really like it. We on the other hand did not. We did no realize that there are 5 other resorts on the same property. Well the "Principe" is the lowest, so you cant go to a lot of places because they are all for the "VIP" guests. I don't like going on vacation and feeling lowest class. You also have to take a trolly to get to the beach or late night food because it is about 2.5km away. I like to walk, but you takes up too much time. I make 3 five minutes phone calls home, and they cost me a total of $75 dollars. I cant believe they would ripe off their guest like that! The food was very plain, even at the A LA CARTE places. We were only aloud 3 reservations, and of course, we got the last pick because the VIP guests get to pick all the good times. My rating system is based on other resorts for the same price or CHEAPER!
