A group of 10 friends and I spent our "university grad trip" here and had a blast. The resort is beautiful and HUGE! It never felt crowded because there was so much space. The pools and the beaches were all incredibly beautiful. The nicest beaches were reserved for the "VIP" guests, but we had no problem finding nice spots to spend the day. Our rooms were clean and spacious, each with its own little patio. We all enjoyed the food at both the buffets and the restaurants (especially the mexican restaurant!). The staff were all very friendly and worked hard to make you comfortable. The one thing we found a little annoying was listening to a helicopter go by every hour dropping off VIP guests.
Overall we had a great trip, and were very happy with our accommodations.

PS. There was only our little grad trip and one other little group from a different university - so it wasn't a big party scene during the day and completely appropriate for children or someone looking for a relaxed atmosphere.

I got what I thought was a great deal on Hotels.com for $70/per night for two people.

We arrived to the hotel at 5:30am on June 28, 2013 as we experienced delays in NYC etc. Our check in was not till 3pm on June 28, 2013, but the front desk said we can check in early if we pay $25/each per person ( we did it ). A guy took us to our rooms in a golf cart, (We had two rooms for 3 people, they had us in separate buildings.) he brought the bags into the rooms (all buildings are walk ups, there are NO elevators). He said he was going to show us around the resort, he pointed 2 - 3 things out, dropped us at "The Tower" and before we knew it, we were in a Condo/Lifestyle sales pitch. They wanted us to buy a "lifestyle time share".................................

$10,000 - JR. Suite - also have to pay $249 a week plus $50/day per person
$15,000- One Bedroom - also have to pay $399 a week plus $69/day per person
$30,000-Presidential Suite - also have to pay $599 a week plus $84/day per person
$60,000-Villas - also have to pay $999 a week plus $89/day person

After an hour we just wanted to leave - We left....... we go outside to find the guy who dropped us there, he was gone. We asked the other staff if they could bring us back to our rooms, they said only VIP's get golf cart rides. We had to walk back to our resort.

We find our rooms, go take a nap, head to the beach. If you don't arrive to the beach early you will not be able to get a cabana. We found one and we hung out at the beach and slept in the beds by the water.

6:30pm we go to El Pilon, there is about 25 tables, with only 3 - 4 being occupied. We say 3 please. Do you have reservations? was the response. Reservations? NO.

***You can only go to the restaurants if you have reservations***

They will only give you two reservations for a week stay - other wise you HAVE TO EAT AT THE GROSS BUFFET "The Pearl" or go to the other resort and eat at Casablanca which is also a buffet and is OK.

Lots of steps and hills, we rented mopeds for $25/day it was the best for getting around and not having to wait for buses.

Even talking to Lucia the Manager of Guest Services, seemed like she had no pull. She is somewhat nice, but doesn't make the guest feel like they can do anything for you.

Everything is, this is for VIP, oh your not VIP, I'm sorry VIP only. ONLY way to be VIP is to be duped and buy a TIMESHARE/LIFESTYLE thing with them.

Gold Sparkly bracelet - can go anywhere
blue sparkly bracelet - are people with gold sparkly bracelet people
red sparkly bracelet - are people from other time share places staying at resort

Regular Light Blue bracelet - are the scum, only allowed the crap service and horrible treatment.

There is no fresh juices, or sodas. Everything is made in one gallon jugs that look like bleach bottles. IT IS SO GROSS.

We were suppose to stay 9 days but left after 5 days. I was not eating and there is nothing near by but a casino that connected to the all inclusive iberostar - which there club was playing all good music and had real pina colada's made from fresh ingredients.

Trust me - spend just a little more to go somewhere else other wise you will be sitting in this resort saying "Dam I should of listened to that review
