The hotel was really clean and well maintained. The food was good. The staff was nice especially the bartender at the beach which was always smiling, dancing and in a good mood. I was happy to get my drink at the beach from Carlos.

We stayed in a suite with a kitchenette - without any dishes, pots or pans or cutlery so it was mostly useless unless you brought your own. The room was ok but a bit of a hike on the 4th floor up and then up a set of inner stairs. The resort overall is in desperate need of an update....

I’ve just returned from an extended weekend at this resort, staying from Thursday April 13 to Tuesday April 18, with my husband. We booked Select Club, so my review will be based on my experience with this upgrade as we spent very little time outside of this exclusive area. Upon arrival we were met at the lobby by a porter...

Loved our rooms, food was good. Maria was absolutely excellent, as was most of the staff. Unfortunately there were over 400 high school students having there March break trip during our stay. They pretty much took over most of the bar areas, the pool, and parts of the beach. They were just being typical teenagers and we knew we'd have...

We stayed there and found the resort to be very clean and well looked after. Food was good and variety was as well. The resort is listed as 3 star but in my opinion far exceeds the expectations. I've stayed at other resort just down the beach which was listed as 3 star as well but was definitely not. The...
