Great all inclusive formula with very nice room, nice restaurant and good room service. The beach, pool, are perfect, this is a great place to spend a week with your family or as a couple. As a negative point, an hopeless front desk, absolutely not customer oriented. They did a mistake with our reservation, we arrived from a seven hour... More

We stayed here for a week for our honeymoon. Before you leave for your trip purchase your visa online so you can bypass the huge line at the airport. It was absolutely amazing!

The rooms were very comfortable and clean; however,I didn't like the modern décor and would have preferred a simpler, more tropical environment. The beach was perfect!
