we booked two rooms for a week over Christmas for a family of six, we were on the 13th floor and the views were very good over the beach (all rooms overlook providing they are high enough in this 19 story building.
The rooms are generous in size and suitable for the number of people. The breakfast buffet was very good although quite busy at certain times but it never took longer than 5 minutes to get seated.
the room were expensive as you would expect at this time of year and the facilities were average for a resort of the this size.
its apparent that that a number of new building have been erected over the last couple of years and the pool areas were rammed with people and also the beaches were very busy. NO sun beds were available quite often and those that were remind of a two star in Benidorm.
there appears to be a culture of charging guests as much for possible for everything from bottled water to some of the waterspouts lessons.
Would i come here again? No the sea life is unexceptional and part from a few turtles doesn't rank anywhere close to Egypt or some Indian ocean resorts. the water is murky and very few fish of interest. the beach is good but not exceptional and when you consider you could have all inclusive in the Caribbean for less money (some of which have all inclusive diving!) its a no brainer.
