The rooms were beautiful clean and maid services was excellent. The food was just ok, the kids club was ok. Beaches in the caribbean are always good, this was not extraordinary however. The pool was ok-a swim up bar i didn't even bother with because the alcohol was of poor quality. There was one jacuzzi and one kids shallow pool....
