This was my third stay at Ideal. It is one of my favorite resort. Great food, friendly staff, luxurious rooms, as usual. My kids love this place. But there were several corporate events when we stayed there. Friday evenings the beach was crowded with a large group of drunks hollering in the beach, right outside the villa. Saturday mornings there...
