We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in the ocean blue and sand. It was more than we expected especially after reading some of the reviews before we went. Everyone was so friendly. We enjoyed the variety of the food and the service was excellent. I would certainly recommend this hotel we would love to go back one day.

This was my first experience at an all-inclusive resort and I was not disappointed. The resort is well kept, seemingly safe, staff is helpful and friendly, rooms were nicely appointed and housekeeping did a good job each day. A la carte restaurants offered tasty options each evening and the breakfast buffet was nice - even had mimosas! Everything is within...

I'm gonna preface this review with the fact that this is a very family friendly resort. Although i'm not sure who would want to bring their family here. Regardless, don't come here for your bachelor party or cause you think you and your boys are gonna get "lit" cause you won't. You instead are going to get barraged with flies...

Great food and nice resort. Entertainment staff were the best I've had on an all inclusive! There were always games and activities going on. Sarah and Papi Chula were the best! I would definitely consider coming back...Mikes coffee was really good as well. The Japanese restaurant was a fun experience

We had a great family vacation here. The resort was truly the highlight of the country for us. The room was nice. The bathroom was nice. Comparable to a $200 per night room in flyover country USA. Tip seemed to affect how/when exactly it was cleaned, but maybe I just imagined that. Every day we tipped $5, it was done...

After arrival we ordered drinks, only to find out all inclusive here means only generic liquor. Next we were told where our room would be. In a building which was as far from the pool as you can get, and that our room was on the backside (so we'd be looking at a fence and a service road). Please take...
