This was an excellent value for money and beautiful resort. I work in a five star resort in the Uk and I would grade this a 4 star. My partner and I had a great holiday and would consider returning if the price was right.
Was very clean and well maintained. Our bedroom if I was being picky was a little tired but had we asked they would of moved us however it did not bother us at all.
Was amazing I ghave travellled all over the world and am hard pushed to find water as clear and beautiful as here. The beach is a great length and great for a morning / evening walk. If you walk past the beach bar you will walk through undergrowth and there is a intermittent path. Follow this for a few hundred meters and there is a coral beach which is also lovely and there is lots of wildlife to see here.
The entertainment was great you could od as much or as little as you like. If you take part and win you eve get a certificate presented to you during the evening entertainment. You can play table tennis, basketball, tennis, beach volley ball, spanish lessons, shooting, dancing.
Wow this was fantastic the shows were excelllent and the dancers were amazing. You could see then practising during the day. There was a wide range of shows and they start at a time where you can eat dinner first. The water show was the best a great idea to utilise the pool.
The staff were very friendly and could not do enough for you. I did not encounter one rude person in the 2 week stay. Tipping is not a big deal you can do it as you go along or at the end. However money is worthless as they cannot really spend it. Try tipping with items money cant buy eg paracetomol, makeup, pads, pens, clothes etc as they cannot but these things readily here.
The food overall here was good. The beach bar and italian for lunch were really lovely and break away from the buffet. The Cuban for dinner was ok and the Italian was hit or miss we had 2 great meals and one average there. The buffet has a fantastic choice and they will happily grill you something from the selection of meats and make you fresh pasta. There was the odd thing that didnt look great but we just avoided those items and if we didnt like what we had chosen we got something different. Some food was just warm but thats the nature of a buffet. Desserts were all covered in this cream / icing stuff which i avoided however in the second week the desserts got better.
The Coffee was excellent and drinks readily availiable even champagne. The beach bar at night was great fun if there is a crowd of people.
Overall we really enjoyed this holiday. It was very relaxing and we did little ore than sunbathe, eat and drink. After 2 weeks we were ready to come home as there was not a massive amount to do outside of the resort unless you booked a super expensive trip. We would definatly reccomend this resort .
