Overall, a nice resort. We were given a room in an old building right in front of the theatre. I asked to have our room changed as the entertainment ends at 11:00pm and it is very loud (we couldn't sleep). We had to pay US$64 to be moved to "the quiet side" of the resort - a room in a...

Poor customer services, too many flies at the buffets, rooms are deteriorated (TV didn't work, we reported but they didn't care to fix it; there was a dirty sofa that we couldn't use); pool is dirty (food and empty glasses floating everywhere); ...you have to pay for the safe... the only good thing was their night entertainment shows...
