The overall review for this large resort is we would go back. However, there is some pros and cons like any resort:
Pros: Service was excellent, no matter where we were. Main buffet was good there's something for everyone, the "mini kids buffet" is a good idea it's at their height and they could help themselves. The kids pool area is the best we've ever seen, seriously it looked like so much fun! Rooms were clean and beds are hard but comfortable. Large beach area with palm trees (no palapas). Loved the sports bar as it's open 24 hours it's a good place to hang out and play cards or visit.
Cons: Ocean does have rocks but we were able to figure out a way in but you need to be careful. We had wifi when we arrived but then it disappeared, we questioned this at the front desk and they stated "Oh there was a problem but we've cleared it up" Oh ok, so no wifi, you have to pay. No biggy but it was a nice feature.Entertainment staff didn't come down to the beach once to get people involved and they didn't seem to be around all that much. Hard to get into the alacartes so book them right when you check in, across from the main desk.
The New Years Gala was very disappointing, it seemed like a karaoke night, we left and went to the sports bar and met some wonderful people from Kansas.
We would go back but not at New Years. The wedding was beautiful and the private beach and banquet room were excellent!!
