After reading some of the reviews my husband and I didn't know what to expect. We were very impressed with our whole stay here. The staff are the most helpful and friendliest people around. We were treated wonderfully. The beach is amazing, lots and lots of chairs, miles to walk, clean and not to crowed. Even though the hotel was full there still was enough space between people to be comfortable. The only thing that I did not care for was there were 3 women who thought it was okay to go topless. I personally found them to be distgusting as this is a family resort with lots of kids around. If you want to be like that, go to a nude beach so the rest of us don't need to look at you. The food was great. The buffets had tons to choose from and the food varied every day. They make the best pizza. The only thing that we won't rave about is the al le cartes. They were good but not like the DREAMS as we were used to. We didn't have to much to choose from and had to make reservations. We ate at the flamingo and sir george. We never tried the asian place as we don't eat sushi. We were concerned about having stuff stolen from some of the reviews we read but never had a problem or heard of anyone else having one. We definatly locked all our valuables up though. The bar staff was great always had people coming down to the beach to see if we wanted something. The entertainment staff was always walking around and talking to everybody. We did notice managers always around in the buffet area and court yard asking how everything is going. As other reviews the wine was not good at all. I found the beds not a problem they didn't seem to hard, we had a junior sweet with king bed. The rooms were pleasent not as good as I was expecting but nothing to complain about. Never had a problem with noise. Everyday our room was made up and our fridge restocked. We asked for extra water and beer and always got it. Never had to call down for anything. We would come back here, and we were glad to look past the negative reviews because there are some people who no matter what they get will never be happy. I am a picky person and would not have any prolem recomending this hotel to anyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
