The hotel property is amazing! It is clean and very well maintained. If you read other reviews about the property I agree with everything they say. Staff is wonderful and very friendly.
They have several restaurants on-site. They have pool side restaurants and formal restaurants. They are extremely over-priced. I read on Tripadvisor before I left that they were "pricey." As a middle class American, I would not consider their restaurants "pricey." They are very expensive. For example, we got in late the first day and did not go to the store yet. We decided to go to the pool side restaurant. We ordered water, 1 beer, 1 nacho and 1 hamburger. Our bill came to $50.
None of the restaurants are ever filled, they have lots of empty tables. I think if they would cut all the prices in half the restaurants would be full. They could make way more money having full restaurants and a waiting list to get in! Makes no sense why they charge so much to get a hamburger and some fries. Or at least have some "cheaper" dining options.
They have a store and some others on tripadvisor have said it was "pricey." Again, I think it is way over priced. For example, it cost $10 for a pancake mix. I do not consider that pricey! That is expensive!!!
Walmart...again, the Walmarts around me do not charge $10 for Ben and Jerry's ice cream. I found that it was "pricey." Not the same as the Walmarts around me. But, we had no choice.
I would go again. However, I would pack a suitcase full of food to bring along. I really think it is an insult for them to ask so much money for items at the hotel. Maybe I just need to stick to all inclusive hotels.
Maid Service was not at all what I expected. The first three days, we left our maid very nice tips. $5-$10 depending on the condition of our room. She never went above and beyond for her tips, so we stopped tipping her. I figure if we leave a $10 tip, my room should be in perfect order. Nope, it was the same as if I left no tip. So, save your money tipping the maid unless you get better results.
Rooms: We had a one bedroom condo. It was a very nice room and could sleep up 6. However, it only had one bathroom!
