Our room and bathroom were a good size, very clean, and nice. The bed wasn't the most comfortable, but that was ok. It truely is all inclusive but, there is nothing luxury about this one. I didn't think the buffet would be that bad and it was. Thankfully they had grilled cheese sandwiches bc that was pretty much the only acceptable looking thing there. Drinks are unlimited, mini bar is unlimited. Room service is also unlimited, but the room service food is so pathetic, do not make that a selling point for you. Their room service "nachos" are ballpark chips with fake dipping cheese. Just to give you an idea.
Worst part- Dinner. Yes, there are 6 restaurants. They are not all open every day and the way you make a reservation is ABSURD! You have to walk down to the front desk before 8 am and stand in line to make your reservation. And you HAVE to have a reservation. They have actual seating times. 6 or 8. The menu is fixed, the food is gross. It'a all around just the worst system ever.
If you are just looking for a place to drink all day by a pool that blares music then this is the place for you.
Best thing about this place is that it is right next door to the Atlantis and you can walk a little ways down the beach and have some peace and quiet.
Bottom line, SPEND THE EXTRA MONEY AND STAY AT THE ATLANTIS. It's awesome and completely worth it.
