I love reading reviews on hotels. Everyone has an opinion, including me!
I have been to this resort over 10 times and I love it. I am going back again for a couple of weeks in May, 2012.
I have been to all inclusive resorts on many islands. Most have a minimal beach with the hotel stretching back from the beach. Here, between the Beach and the Palace in almost a mile of beach. The beach is rocky when you go in so watch your step. I have never had a problem finding a beach chair anytime of day.
Be prepared to do some walking, as this place is big. Enjoy the mature palm trees and landscaping.
This hotel is aroung 20 yrs old so do not expect marble and lace. The rooms are basic, but do the trick. There will always be problems with water pressure and such, deal with it ! This is 3rd world!
I am from the US, and around 80% of the guests here are form Europe, mostly Italy. It will take a day or two to get used to the Italians, but they are great people.
During the day there are many activities. The beach boys and girls are there to motivate you to join in, do so, it is fun.
At around sunset, people start to meet at the main outside bar. Dinner follows and then back to the bar where the music is starting. Some will go to the nightly show, and some stay at the bar area. This is what I enjoy the most. Every hotel I have been to becomes rather quite at night. NOT THIS PLACE ! Each night is a differant theme and the dancing goes to around 12:30 ! Then, there is a migration to the disco that goes all night. Just outside the disco is an all night outdoor pizza parlor. Great just before bed! The dancing is Bachata, Salsa, Merengue and modern. Again, the pool girls and boys will motivate you to dance. (remember the lessons during the day?)
I am also a diver. The scuba here is average but fills the need to dive. Most dives are very easy around 40 ft. I so underwater photgraphy and I always come back with new critters.
Now the food. The buffet is large and the food is good, not great, but no complaints. The reservation restuarants are also OK, but nothing special.
