I will try and be as honest and unbiased as possible. I am a 24 year old female living in the United States I went on this vacation in August with my Fiance and it was overall average to good. We did not go outsideof the resort or on any excursions. The location and beaches are beautiful but some aspects of the resort were not so great.
Absolutely beautiful beaches with white sand and carribean green and blue waters.
The palm trees and scenery is gorgeous, they have lots of sunny and shaded areas with seating
They have free Trapeze lessons ( I did this very cool) you have to go to the trapeze area at the right time and sign a waver its free!
Free kyaks and sailing lesson excursions if you get to the sports area at the right time
They have a professional photographer that can take photos of you on the beach, with a monkey and maccaw parrots (photo session is free photos cost 10 dollars each to get on a cd on average)
Massages are available for purchase on the beach
The resort has a few gift shops and things to do at night (shows, club dancing ect.)
The resort plays music at night and usually has dancing after the shows which can be very fun!
They have special events and extras one night it was champagne and international desserts for example near the grotto
Great and beautiful pool and common areas, nice pool beds
If your looking for planned activities during the day they have a few fun ones but it can be a party scene (we were looking for more relaxing)
Average Food( but they have a large selection of food options)
The beach area can get very crowded it is a very large resort you have to get to the beach early if you want a chair and the chairs are so close together
All of the pools close around 6pm and there are no swim up bars
We got a standard room and it was muggy and musty the AC was not powerful enough for the extreme August heat, the standard room is small and the bed is not in any way posted to the wall or stable it will move if you are planning any romantic time.
The beds are hard and pillows and bedding muggy
You only get acertain number of sit down dinners and you have to make a reservation for them with the front desk the rest of the meals are buffets.
Not very American friendly and guests were 90% Italian or international/European
All inclusive alcoholic drinks were honestly awful they serve then to you in these miniature plastic cups with barely any ice and all beers come from a keg of local beer very standard.
Overall the place pools and area is beautiful but the resort and rooms were not very good making this vacation a very fun and beautiful one but I think we will spend the money we have on another resort next time. Hope this helps!
