There were 10 of us, all friends who got away for Spring Break. We booked through FunJet. The entire trip was great. We had a direct flight, transfers were included. Jersey John explained all we needed to know on the way to the resort. From check in to check out we had great service. The room was very nice and overlooked the courtyard with fountains. We were located between the pool and main courtyard area that contained most of the ala carte restaurants and buffet.
I loved being so close to the pool and only a few feet to the beach. The beach was beautiful, with small cresting waves.
Most nights we all ate together, which can be a challenge for 10 people. The buffet was just as good as the ala carte restaurants. The staff was very engaging and helpful. The only area that I would have improved was the entertainment. It was sometimes good, sometimes tolerable. The music in the evening was very good. Would definitely go back.
