Beautiful resort, clean room & facilities. Food was displayed beautifully, but got tired of the buffet. Loved the Toucan restaurant the best-should have gone every night for dinner. NOT crazy about the "all inclusive drink" selection. The rum tasted funny (I like Captain Morgan, and their spiced rum is not even close). By day three I gave up trying out new mixed drinks and stuck with wine (not a beer drinker). with one exception- a Dirty Banana (good but fattening). The nightly entertainment was pretty repetitive every night, dancers that were wanna-be vegas showgirls. Ended up in the casino, which is down the street, and the staff there was great. So friendly, and funny as hell as they took my money. But they made it fun, so I enjoyed myself!! Would recommend if on a budget like myself.
