This is a huge complex which includes 5 resorts. It took us a couple days to figure out which trail to use for the quickest way to where we where going to. The walk was nice however, I ditched my heels after the first night. Unfortunately, we had a day of heavy rain, and although one of the path is covered, we got soaked getting there from our room and getting in the lobby. Although the staff was trying to keep on top of it, the lobbies and sidewalks leading to the restaurants where extremely treacherous as the thatch roofs where leaking onto the beautiful marble floors.
The beach is beautiful with lots of chairs in either sun or shade and you shouldn't have to reserve your chairs (which is not permitted anyway). There are areas with reefs for snorkeling; our friends said that they have seen more here while snorkeling than they have seen elsewhere scuba diving.
All the restaurants and buffets where great. On a small note; the lobster was good but does not compare to our sweet lobster from the Maritimes and may not be worth the extra $.
Our room (block 50) was beautiful with a nice view on the woods and wildlife which is plenty there. Shower, linen, bed, AC, Cleanliness, etc. all perfect. I brought my own pillow.
The animation around the pool was lame and certainly not comparable to what we have experienced at the Iborostar in Cuba. All in all, we would not hesitate to return to this resort.
