Excellent staff. Very polite and entertaining but beach area requires a bit more instructions and safety measures as an incident had occurred. The nightly shows were also amazing a big hand to the staff. Buffet on Christmas was also outstanding.

Stayed at this hotel in March-April and loved it! Everything was perfect. Highly recommend this hotel. Entertainment team was the best. We travelled with kids and sometimes left the children in the Kids Club which was quiet. Hotel had a great atmosphere.

I you are on a budget for an all-inclusive resort well this is one of the places you might consider. The food is good and you can sit by the pool or the beach all day. Again, for a quick vacation stay.

The hotel has a good service and installation for the price. Be prepared to bring with you repellent because you will get bitten by bugs, the hotel has good installation and room are very comfortable. In summary this will be a good choice for a hotel under US$100.00
