Stayed for spring break in March. The accommodations were great, and the food was average. The average time we spent at the evening restaurants was about 2-2 1/2 hours, not worth the time. Had a poor experience with the booking staff when I needed some help with changing premium level services, they were not flexible and not accommodating to what...

Everything was great about the resort except for the buffet hours and the wifi. Both main buffets were closed between 11:30-1pm and 5-6:30pm, which are both the prime eating times for our kids (ages 2 and 5). While we appreciated that the Sports Bar was open during these times, after eating their 2x per day, it got tiring. As a...

After being put in room with 1 bed instead of 3, my sons had to sleep on couches. This was in addition to having an entire tray of strawberry and bloody mary drinks spilled over the top of my head. Neither issue was addressed, at all, by the staff. On the positive side, the facilities are very nice and the...

Will review more later, but this is more for Javier Cordero Gilsanz. I tried to email without luck. I am a guest, here and staying now at this moment.

Wonderful experience with so much to do. We made good use of the pools, including two for young children. They also liked the Bowling Alley. As somewhat fussy eaters, there was enough choice on the buffet to keep everyone happy (especially the self-serve ice cream cones). Everything was kept exceptionally clean.

We just returned from a stay here and I have mixed feelings. We went with 8 other families with children ranging in age from 12 to 23. The pro's were: the beach was great and well cared for, the pool and grounds were fabulous, there was something to do for everyone, the staff for the most part was friendly and...

This is a great resort, has everything you need within 15 minute walk and plenty of variety to keep you occupied and relaxed for more than a week. The one thing is the food was average -- not blown away, but it wasn't bad. The staff is a bit relaxed and sometimes you need to ask a few times to...
