I am just wrapping up my week here. Positive: the beach is exquisite on most days. Hit&miss: the service. Some nice people; others did not want to be there. Tip pressure is overwhelming. Negative: everything else. The rooms are very old and smell like mold. Not clean; frequently seen cockroaches. Shower water is warm at best on hottest setting. The resort is EMPTY. No one is here so therefore makes for a very boring vacation. There is NOTHiNG TO DO here. The kayaks and pedalos were never allowed out, even on very calm days with no wind. Most beach chairs are broken. Tons of seaweed wash up that they try and pick up daily... Food is just horrible. Buffet not worthy of that name. Menu in all restaurants the same every day. I got a stomach flu on my last day ( i don't drink ). Entertainment is nowhere to be seen. Most importantly, the resort is overrun by local families (90% of hotel guests). They cut in front of you at the buffet and are loud in their rooms until the early hours of the morning. The facilities are just not maintained. Sorry but this is my honest experience.
