This was a much smaller resort that we are used to. There is one adult pool and one family/kiddy pool that are both nice. It’s very close to the beach. At the buffet, the food was good, but I personally didn’t find it spectacular. I wish that there were more options of restaurants to eat at. We ended up getting a room upstairs in the "Royal Suites" after a few days and the food upstairs was amazing! It was like night and day compared to the buffet downstairs. It was gourmet food, absolutely delicious. When we stayed at the resort it was very quiet so we had the Royal Suite restaurant all to ourselves. We had our server Daniel who was just a pleasure to be around. The staff at this resort were all super friendly. We travelled with two one year olds and everyone knew them by name and would always come to us to say hi or asked us if we needed anything special for the kids.
There really wasn’t much for entertainment at night, but going down to the bar.
One thing that I didnt like was getting off the elevators and being harassed by the "Occidental/time share sellers". I dont want to spend any of my vacation time listing to a selling speal. If Im going to invest in vacations/time shares, Im personally going to do my research at home anyway. So that for me was annoying, but you get that at every resort.
Overall, I think that I have been use to much larger resorts, but this was nice. Staff was super!!! My only recommendation to the hotel would be to have some sort of pizzeria or food available for late night snackers.
