We had a great family vacation. Went there for a week over spring break March 23-30. I think this statement I'm about to make is par for the course for all inclusive resorts. The food is very average. We didn't like the steak house at all but we went to the italian rest. one night and it was really good. The buffet was ok, we always managed to find something but it's a buffett. It got old after awhile. There were no other restaurants for dinner off the resort property you could just walk to. There was a burger joint off the property that was open during the day but we never went to it. We went on the Safari Tour that was an awesome excursion. It was a whole day affair and you got to see how the locals really lived. I highly recommend that tour. My husband and son went on the Piratte Catamaran Snorkeling excursion and they loved that so I highly recommend that too. The hotel itself was very nice, the pool was nice, the beach was great. Never had trouble finding chairs on the beach. The workers would find one for you in fact. Overall was a great trip. I just got tired of the food.
