I was just there over the weekend with a girlfriend and it was great. The resort was clean and the staff was super friendly. There were people from all different places, it was awesome to see so many different nationalities. The rooms were clean, with enough space and a really nice balcony. We usually hung out there listening to music and drinking in between getting ready for dinner. The weather was the best during our 5 days. It only rain once on Friday night but the rain lasted less than an hour and it was while we were back in the room getting ready for dinner.
Food was ok, nothing out of this world. They had a different theme every night which was nice. And the Mexican restaurant was really good. Just remember to make reservation for the Mexican place either the day before or the day off. And they are close Sundays and Mondays.
They also have a snack bar that runs all day. They have burgers, hot dogs, pizza and fries. We had pizza and fries everyday. I think I gain 6 pounds by the time I came back.
The vendors on the beach can be a little annoying but just say "No gracias", they usually go away, but they will come back. This is how they make their living. I was kind of glad the vendors came up to us, I was dying to do the zip lining and monkey jungle but the hotel could not make it work during the time I was there. So we ended up booking it with Sergio on the beach. They picked us up the next morning at the front desk at 8:30am and we were back by 1pm. It is definitely a must do. It was AWESOME!!!! The guides at the monkey jungle were very friendly, plus the money goes to a good cause.
The animation staff was also great. The shows every night wdere entertaining. They are not Broadway caliber, but there is some talent in there. The Michael Jackson show was the best out of the ones we saw. And "baby face" the kid impersonating Michael Jackson is an amazing dancer. They also had another boy who is obviously classically trained. They were a delight to watch. During the day the animation staff did a nice job trying to get the staff to get involve in games. They did pool aerobics, Sexy Juan Carlos ran volleyball games on the beach everyday and Scooby Doo was trying to get us to play some game with a golf ball and a bunch of colorful balls. I never really understood it, or played it for that matter. I got my workout walking to the bar to get drinks. The bar was open since 10am, the drinks were a little weak, but it didnt bother us since it was all inclusive. The disco is really small, but since it was during off season it was not crowded down there. The animation staff hangs out with all the guest to make sure everyone is having a good time. We will coming back. It was lots of fun.
Our only complaint is the water temperature for the jacuzzi. It was really cold. We also went to the spa to get manicures and pedicures. The staff was super friendly but the water used for our pedicure was cold and there were no massage jets while soaking our feet like we are used to in the States!
