This is on the lower end of all-inclusive hotels, but it's still decent and whoever is complaining is probably a habitual complainer. Its close to everything and a very close walk to the beach. I felt safe on the property and the staff were friendly and helpful. I came here to surf, I shopped around town a bit, and ended up choosing the surf instructor who works at Morgan Cove Casino (the same owners as the morgan cove central) Rodrigo. He really put in an effort to help me surf, even though I'm fit (under 3 hours) I still consider myself a novice at surfing. I was able to get up on 7 foot waves after my first visit. Quite a feat. I noticed the other classes on the beach were only doing 3ish foot waves...
The food at the buffet is repetitive, but again, this is a cheaper hotel, so I'm not going to complain. If you value bang for your buck, it's a good call and worth considering.
