We had a very pleasant vacation in this location. Although we had the worse vacation start ever due to the American Airlines incompetence, all that was wiped out during the 10 days stay in this hotel. The rooms are a little bit outdated, but we stayed most of the time outside. The bathroom is not so great. But, the beach is clean and the palm trees are awesome, the sea fantastic, without rocks only smooth sand. A true corner of paradise. The food was plenty and very good especially at the Italian restaurant. But the best thing in this resort is the entertainment / animation. The animation crew is fantastic all the girls and boys are very good especially Beba, Joan, Yuly etc. Their shows we're really good and also the animation during the day and their friendly way to approach the tourists. Also the people at the bar we're good and from the reception, they we're all very helpful. The gardens are very well kept and they are full of spectacular tropical plants and trees, really beautiful. So I strongly recommend this place, but don't expect to much from the rooms but from the outdoor.
