The 80 minute massage at the spa was heavenly. If you are into adventures or just into relaxing, there is plenty to do, or not do. It... More

This was our first all inclusive vacation and was amazing! The customer service was fabulous. Omar and Gabriel were the best servers you could ask for. Make sure to bring single bills as the staff is well worthy of tips! The spa was great, juliette gave me a great 80minute hot stone massage for only $90. The only complaint I... More
