The hotel itself is beautiful and perfect beach location. Nice pools, attentive staff, cold drinks, lots of soace to explore, on sight shopping. My only concern was the food was average to poor at some points. I got really sick one day. Other than that one day we had a great time here for the money we spent.

A very clean and beautiful place. Is a place where you can go as a couple or with the family. This hotel has everything you might need . We went for a family wedding and was just beautiful. The location was amazing.

It was a good trip overall but was frustrating not knowing what was available at what times. Not a lot of things to do for kids. I probably won't be coming back, at least with my family anytime soon. Everyone I came with (party of 8) had the same thoughts and would like to see the things better laid out...

Everything was good, except the weather. My daughter has a great time in water park! Beautiful beach with a lot of palm trees. A lot of different foods, good variety of fresh juice, nice stuff. There are all you need to have a great vacation. I think we will come back to this resort.

Our family of four, ages 18-53, all agreed this was the best warm-weather vacations we have ever taken. The resort is big and clean and the staff was helpful during our visit. The buffets offer extensive selections so everyone can find something they like. The a la carte restaurants are a nice break from the buffets. Make sure you make...

Much better all inclusive for the money. The resort is well kept and very nice, but the food is AWFUL and the staff is scattered with gems and misfits. Also, the hidden costs of this "all-inclusive" are NUTS. Don't think you get the $1000 resort credit or included golf, you don't. I spent an additional $1000 in golf, merchandise and...

We wouldn't go there again because most of the staff was not helpful plus lots of problems booking restaurant reservations in advance. The gym could use some update with better instructors and equipment. Too bad because this was a beautiful property.

This resort was terrible. Every area had issues... food, service, cleanliness, activity options, wifi, room construction (we had many leaks and issues), housekeeping service, room service took over an hour, etc.

The beach and pool were the best part of the trip. We traveled in late November and had a week of perfect weather. Food and drinks were decent - but it's hard to expect much more when you can find such cheap prices to travel here on CheapCarribean.com. Definitely would recommend for a relaxing getaway.
