We went here last week with extended family. This is a great resort to go to if you have kids (especially very little ones) because their kids' club is very good. The people who work there are very warm, outgoing and capable. I had kids ages 6, 10 and 15, and they all couldn't wait to get back to the kids' club in the morning, and again during/after dinner (even my teen). We didn't get much family time together, but the 18+ quiet pool made up for that. :-) (There was, however, spotty waiter service for drinks at the pools.)
If you're active, there are a lot of cardio and sporting activities. The food is hit or miss. Some of it was great, some was too salty, some was bland, but the choices were wide. It was all buffet for every meal; a choice of sitdown service would have been nice, and the ability to get a mixed drink somewhere besides the one bar.
There was a show every night, and the performers were the folks who work in all the different areas of the resort (kids' club, reception, food, etc.). It was fun to watch, but definitely not professional (except for the trapeze stuff).
The staff in general are really great. I don't know how they manage such long workdays, though. Good thing almost all of them are very young. I would definitely recommend this resort for families (but not for couples or those without kids). We had a wonderful time!
