We arrived here for the weekend of 14-16 of February expecting to have a nice relaxing vacation from the fast paced, city life we live back home. Since my arrival I have noticed that they have no gym even though they advertise like they do. And although I understand this resort is in development, I would think the management would at least tell the workers to not work before noon on Saturday and Sunday as people like to get out and enjoy there Friday and Saturday nights which means they might enjoy sleeping in. Since everything there is made out of concrete, it sounds like someone is a sledge hammer pounding it right in my room. To me it sounds like it's coming from under us, but when we called the manager and told them, she went upstairs because she thought they were working above us. That's how loud this is. Plus on top of that, they didn't even stop it even though they said they where going too. So all day, every day there is constant banging!! Not to mention there are some very young local women with many 60+ guys that for some reason, enjoy walking out on there balcony in the morning naked, I would not bring a family to this location. Security is good, but the menu is far from accommodating, so don't expect too much!!! Bugs, can't really say enough about the bugs, there windows or doors don't seal properly so the bugs are out of control, and I 409 everything, everyday. Also since there are no seals on the doors, when the wind catches them, they slam so loud; you get at minimum of 20 doors a damn slamming closed that you can hear through out the complex, you would think some simple door stops to attach at the bottom of the door would fix this issue.
