And if you still choose to go, then don't complain about the size when you return! From lobby to beach is maybe a 7-8 minute walk and if you don't want to...

This was our second trip to the Caribbean, our first was two years ago to Cuba. There is absolutely nothing negative I can say about this resort. The food was excellent (both the buffets and a la catres). The staff were not as friendly as in Cuba but this ment that they were not constantly "in your face" waiting for...
