Let me start by saying I travel for a living so any hotel you can think of, I've been in it. I know what's important to me when staying in a hotel and what's not.
At check in I asked Samuel for an upgraded room and indeed we got one. Simple, they were very accommodating and super nice when we arrived. We stayed in building 4 and were right near the pool and beach.
2 double beds with a really nice upgraded bathroom with the rain Forrest shower. The only thing is that they only had hand towels and body towels. No wash rags. When we would leave the room in the morning we made sure we put the sign for clean up on the door and when we got back in they had cleaned our room extremely well and put flowers on the bed. No complaints.
Of course at an all inclusive there was gonna be locals trying to get you to try the different sports and buy things, but hey besides that who cares!?!? There are also a lot of women in thong bikinis and going topless. I did myself even. Once again, no complaints and the kids around there were well behaved so kudos to the parents. Clean pool, gorgeous beach.
I will admit the buffet and the snack bar was by far the best!!! The fancy restaurant I didn't like, my boyfriend ended up eating my food. The liquor was ok, it didn't get us as drunk as we wanted but I've been to a few all inclusives and I've had that before so we had our own liquor that got the job done.
Nice, accommodating and respectful. They weren't pushy, and they made the resort fun.
All and all, I had a blast!!
