My wife and I went to this resort with two other couples. At check-in we found out that the reservation was screwed up but the people at the desk promptly made it right. We stayed in building 5 in a king room. The room was very nice with a large tile walkin shower. We had a partial ocen very with a woods area right behind us. This area is full of small animals which are a type of lemar. They are harless but always come running up looking for handouts when you go out on the patio. I would suggest not getting a ground floor room if this would bother you and if you are on the first floor definitely don't leave your patio door open.
The grounds and pool was very nice. The food was good at the buffets, but when you get tired of buffet food the resort has several specialty restaurants, at no extra cost, that are excellent and easy to get reservations. The choices are Mexican, Italian, french, asian, steak and seafood. I would recommend them all.
The beach is nice although it is rocky once you get into the sea.
All in all I would recommend this resort.
