After seeing a recommendation on CNN for this resort we booked the trip. We found that frequently the staff would use an excuse to keep us from participating in an activity or recieve the service we were promised.
We asked for king beds, we got 2 fulls. We asked to switch rooms when a room with a king bed was availible and we were told we would have to go to an hour long meeting where we could ask to trade. We asked to kayak and we were told the tide was to high, or the winds were too swift etc. Meanwhile, other guests were given kayaks right away. There are many more examples like this.
It was very obvious that we were unwanted as Americans (identified by our wristbands at check in) and that any service would have to be asked for many times. Do not go to this resort, it was far from all inclusive.
