We visited stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during the low season in October. Unfortunately they had construction works on the main swimming pool, and started the work in the morning around 6.30 am. During that time, they only rented the rooms in the main building, which was directly affected by the noise. The service is all inclusive, but...

Nothing fancy but cute and comfortable. Food was decent in main cafeteria, but at "the big house" (casino) it was tasteless - completely bland (ate there twice to make sure the first time wasn't just an opsie). Most tourists here seem to be from Nicaragua. During the week the hotel was so empty it felt like we were the only...

An all-inclusive resort with plenty of good food and a beautiful beach in front of you. An affordable place to relax for a few days, surrounded by lush vegetation and beautiful sunny beaches. When I went in the end of August it must have been low season since it seemed quite empty for a resort. This place could use more...

The check-in process was an utter nightmare: As I stood in line patiently waiting to check into the hotel with several people ahead of me & several to my rear, I watched a steady stream of people just bypass all of us & approach the staff at the front desk.

For an all inclusive, this place seems just average. The beach was nice but rough. The massage was amazing. There are no towels available for people coming in for day use only - you can't even rent/buy one. The buffet was ok - again the only place available to eat free for day use folks.
