An okay place for a short stay, but I wouldn't go back or recommend the place.
Beach is a short (90 second) walk away
Room was quite spacy
Beds were comfortable
Supermarket, Restaurants, and Cafe nearby (turn left as you walk out of the hotel and walk straight for 2-3 minutes)
3 pools on-site, so never any crowding
Food at the all-inclusive buffet was limited and not very good; drinks were watered down
Terrible water pressure, i.e. no water at all sometimes
Some staff rather unfriendly and unhelpful
Do not book any tours through the hotel, they're overpriced and not very good
If you're staying here, you're probably doing it to save money, so here's a tip: DO NOT go all-inclusive here, as it's a waste of money for what you get. I tried going all-inclusive the first night of my stay, and didn't do it after that, because the food selection is really limited, not very good, and apparently doesn't change at all, and the drinks are watered down considerably.
If all you need is a reasonably-priced hotel near the beach, then this place is okay for that, and you can self-cater at the little mall down the block, where there's a supermarket, a decent bakery, and everything I tried at Danny's Bar & Grill was excellent and much better than anything the hotel had on offer.
