Disappointing experience due to major defect in shower that caused it to whistle all night, preventing us from sleeping well. The hotel did nothing to compensate for this. Additionally, there were kids everywhere, which is awesome for families, but not that great for a couple celebrating our anniversary. The adult-only pool is very boring - no bar or music. Food...

The all inclusive service is fantastic, the pools are great and the night shows are a blast !! I recommend the deluxe rooms on the first floor since they have a balcony directly to the swimming pools which are very convenient especially with kids. Overall a very recommended hotel !

Pools were nice. A bit crouded on the weekend when the local families arrived. I understand why though as it was a nice resort. Food was fresh and alway good. Rooms were clean. Beach was close, but the black sand kept us away due to it being VERY hot.

We stayed for six days at this hotel. The restaurant service was excellent particularly Elias and Juan Luis Lopez. The food at both the restaurants and the buffet were very good. The room itself was average, however, the view was beautiful. The main buildings were lovely but not air conditioned. It was hot and humid when you were dining in...

Hotel beaches were not very clean or nice. The rooms were not very clean. We all got sick from the food. The pools were not very clean as well. Internet did not work. The plaster outside of our room was falling down.

I was pleasantly surprised with the resort. The pool areas are great for relaxing and enjoying a few drinks. The food was much better than I expected and the on-site restaurants that require reservations were excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times. The only negative I can say was the cleanliness of the room. I don't think...

Overall, this is a great resort. They have a buffet dinner that was delicious, and themed each night. The night that we were there, it was a Peruvian theme. There were several great options and everything I tasted was very good. Drinks at the bar made a great way to end the day. The mixed drinks were very good and...
