We loved this place. The beach was great, the rooms were clean and there was a great atmosphere. When we arrived our room was damp so we spoke to the front desk and they changed our room almost immediately. They put us in a suite with a direct ocean view which was superb. I was ill during my visit so... More

This resort had everything we were looking for in a beach all-inclusive. Close to Bucerias, safe, great expansive beach. Only drawback was trying to get into the a la carte restaurants was a pain! Staff were great! Drinks at most of the bars were really well done. Swim up bar could stand to be expanded but we were also there... More

I had slight reservations about this hotel because the reviews are very mixed. In my honest opinion it's a decent 4 star hotel. First off check on was as good as everyone says but I think that's down to First Choice but either way it was the quickest, slickest I have come across. We had a junior suite, nice large... More

We visited October 2015 and I would definitely say this is a party hotel. Majority of visitors are from Canada/America/England and some from Mexico itself. To get to in and out of the resort is like a 25 minute drive, making us feel secluded and safe. The food was ok although I am not a fan of the Spanish food,... More

Flight We flew on the Thomson Dreamliner from Manchester in September. My partner is very tall so we paid for extra legroom seats, I personally didn't notice the difference but he certainly did and said it is well worth it, after all it is a long flight and seemed to go on forever! Transfers We travelled on the Thomson coach... More

We were then invited to move to a suite overlooking the pool and with a beach and seaview outlook.This also came with a whirlpool bath,separate wet room... More

Overall the hotel is nice although the rooms could do with a refurbishment (bathrooms especially showing their age now with wear and tear). Over my 2 week stay to my disappointment the Flamingo toilets (gents) were overflowing and one of the three urinals defective - although the cleaner tried her best at all times (but this was a lost cause)...
