My girlfriend and I stayed at this resort last week, loved it! The good: 1. Service was outstanding. From the front desk check-in to check-out, all service was awesome. Beach service was particularly great considering the heat and amount of customers. 2. Beach was beautiful, the Internet pictures don't do it justice. 3. Landscaping was very pretty and well kept....

Let me start by saying my husband and I have visited this resort for 13 years it should tell readers something! I'm just amazed at what people critique i.e. 'The waves are too rough' 'The Play area for children is not good enough' 'The kiddy pool should have water slides' 'The breakfast/lunch/dinner has no variety' ' The night entertainment is...

Lets start with the positives, The service was excellent, there was not a moment that went by without a server asking if there was anything that they could do for you, whether at the bar, in the restaurant, by the pool or...

This is one of my favorite vacations and not just because it is the most recent. The food was good (some restaurants far better than others), the quality for what we paid was far more than I expected, the staff is trained impeccably and had knowledge of activities outside of the resort and the pool/beach areas were very well-managed with...

Beautiful location and very well maintained. I have to say that the Royal service is the way to go. Our Butler, Sakny, took very good care of us the entire trip. Royal Service has a separate building with a lounge that has snacks and drinks until 10pm. La Palapa, the restaurant by the pool for Royal Service was amazing. We...

I came here on business 3 nights. Check-in was smooth. The first room they gave us was on the third floor. After a sleepless night because our room was right over the disco (3353) we called the reception the next day and changed our room to the 8th floor (3806). Stay away from rooms on 3rd floor over the disco...
