Very beautiful resort on a magnificent place on earth. Located right on the beach, with a 10 minute walk to the centre of Playa, a must for travelers that like to relax. The staff welcomes you with a warm friendly smile upon arrival.
The rooms, which are cute little huts with verandah's, are well maintained and comfortable to stay in. We liked the lay-out of the permisses. 2 pools, beachbar, restaurants and enough space on the beach will make your vacation a memorable enjoyment.
The time we stayed there, there was some construction in the neighbourhood, so we advice you to stay in the cheaper rooms (gardenview) as they are located in the centre of the resort but close enough to the beach.
The all inclusive food was very good. Dinner buffets gave a lot of choice and varieties. Serving and housekeeping staff was very welcoming and helpful. Bar prices were within the reasonable limits (but what do you expect from a vacation resort?)
All in all...a must for your vacation!!
