Just got back from a trip here with five friends, and had a fantastic time. Did we get sick of (not from) the middling food? Were the drinks watered down? Was our bungalow a bit close to the loud shows that would go well into the night? Yes. But hey, you can't expect five-star everything when you're paying next to nothing. If you want a good, cheap, relaxing trip, I'd recommend this place.
The highlights include:
The beach - a lot of shade for the sunburned, a lot of sunny sand for the suntanned. The water was nice, do your best to avoid the coral and rocks.
The pizzeria - great brick oven pizza at 3am.
The drinks - Unlimited? Yes please. I recommend getting two at a time, and sticking to the rum/whiskey and coke.
The room - pretty roomy bungalow (#1320) with great proximity to the bar, buffet, and pool. Yeah, some nights we heard the show going at midnight, but that's what happens when you're so close to everything.
If you're an American who only likes to be around other Americans, go somewhere else. The clientele was predominately Italian, with some French and South American sprinkled in there. Personally, I enjoyed the cultural mix - and don't mind cigarette smoke or topless sunbathers - but that might not be your cup of tea.
Before the trip I was apprehensive, but was impressed. It wasn't the Ritz, but it was certainly enjoyable. I saw a few Americans complaining to staff about this or that (and in one case, cussing staff out), but come on people, manage your expectations.
