On Dec 28 my family and I decided to visit this resort for the day. We were in Nicaragua for the week but staying elsewhere. First of all let me say that this is a very nice resort. The pool is HUGE and there seemed to be plenty of space for people to lounge. Although there were a lot of people it didn't seem crowded at all. There is also a beach area and hamocks and lounge chairs in the wooded area in front of the beach.
It would have been nice if there were umbrellas on the beach to go with the beach chairs but there wasn't so we were unable to sit on the beach but rather had to sit in the chairs in the shaded areas. They offered to food options; the snack shack located by the pool and a resaturant overlooking the beach area. We paid $65 per person for the day at this resort which I feel is extremely high because the food SUCKS!!. We do not eat buffets as a rule at home but this resort has buffet style in its restaurant. The food looks and tastes very unappetizing and people just let their kids go to the buffet unsupervised where they were sticking their hand in the food. I find this very disgusting and nasty. We just got something to drink and ate a few of the deserts which surprisingly were pretty good. The food in the snack shack was so-so. Burgers and hotdogs and the usual fare. The bread for the burgers and dogs had been left out I guess all day so that it was extremely hard. The "free" alcohol seemed to be watered down so as not to get anyone to intoxicated. The resort seems to be nice but if you are going just for one day; keep your $65 in your pocket and stay at the pool by your own hotel.
