I was as Lifestyles for shorter stay than when I normally go. The service was good. Staff was great. Always helpful. The only thing was that I could not get into some of the restaurants that I really liked. So I was a little disappointed. I would like to see evening swimming at the some of the pools maybe until...

Over all good. Food was not that good and most places served the same thing over and over at the buffet and many times it look and tasted like it was carried over from the day before. House keeping did a good job on the rooms.

The Residence Suites was Absolutely Boring! No Life! No Good Vibes! No Energy! No Music at the Pool! And No Wifi! (If the property isn't offering much of anything else, at least offer complimentary wifi for an hour each day.) When I checked in, I wasn't given any information about tour options or the amazing taxi services on the resort.... More

We stayed for 3 nights in September. Our room was beautiful! Huge and clean. Although the AC broke after the first day. We were staying such a short time we didn't even report it until we were leaving. The resort was mostly empty which made it wonderful for us. We only ate at the buffet, Casablanca. The food was good... More

First let me start with the resort itself. It was HUGE and a lot of walking. When we booked our vacation I opted for the "newer" buildings, not thinking they were farthest from the beach. The rooms themselves were nice, but who goes to the Carribean for the hotel room? Just pick a building and enjoy the palm trees, beach... More

Super slow check in - we waited 3 hours. Hotel rooms are adequate. AC works well. Pretty quiet. Tip the maid a few dollars and you will get more towels and bottled water (plus they only make about $75 a week). Beach sucks. It is not clear water and has seaweed all over the bottom. yuck.

I travelled with a special needs child, the staff at the reception was very accomodating, especially Frank & Carmen Suarez. He loves the pool, At Casa Blanca, Carmen the smoothie queen was bubbly, Kelvin Santos was always willing & smiling with his service.
