Rooms are ok, target superior rooms they are a bit better than standard rooms both are a bit poor. Good animation team and pool activities. All inclusive basis is amazing. Food is ok sometimes a lot of local food. Amazing location, pool, and ocean view.

Poor customer service Their lamb/beef was not fresh frozen for a long time Their buffet was not up to the 4 star hotel standard. I had been booked for a honeymoon just to be given a standard room. Have no intention of going back there
