Wonderful hotel, food and beach. Lots of things to do on site and a large variety of excursions available. Will definitely stay here again. Evelyn (entertainment) went above and beyond the call of duty.

Terrible food

Was just here last week for 7 nights. We only had 2 good meals the entire stay. Meat was tough as leather, vegatables were rubbery. Much of the food on the buffets (pool side & main buffet) was cold, even being under the heat lamps. Hair found in food on 2 occasions. You can only eat at the restaurants once each during your stay, so you are forced to do the buffet at least 2 nights for dinners. This is not the case at another resort we stayed at twice before. Should have gone back there, but thought we'd try somewhere different. This is my first time ever rating on this site.

Not enough for what we paid

The room was ok (for a deluxe), staff was ok, food was ok, activities were ok, cocktails were ok... but we were assured by the company that the hotel would be perfect, the food great and the staff really attentive. We're globally disappointed. The option Privileged ISN'T WORTH IT AT ALL! Don't bother to invest. We had no priority whatsoever, a few special alcohols... Far from what we had in other hotels before. Oh and the sea isn't clear.

We enjoyed the a la cartes - went to all of them . Steak house was terrific. Rooms were good, air conditioning not always working. Staff was good and polite. But I found that if you didn't tip as they liked you were left without drinks or waiting for an extremely long time. To be clear we are a group of ladies who serve and bartend. We are good tippers. But in the off chance you were not carrying money- you were not served. Disco was fun. Always entertaining. Small spot. No other visitors from neighboring reports. Tour guides were good and helpful. One girl lost her wallet and he got it back with all the cash inside. I was impressed. Oh top mention about the food we had 2 ladies with sever allergies and no one had an issue.

No air conditioning

We are currently staying at this resort, however there is no air conditioning in our room. We arrived yesterday and told the staff. They said that they would fix it and two days later with multiple calls and visits to the front desk with the promise that they would fix it and still no air conditioning, and no help to try and put us in another room. Very disappointed!!!
