Great environment for both relaxing and fun! The staff is amazing, very friendly, outgoing and always there if you need them. We had an amazing time and would definitely go back! Jose and Luis were tons of fun!!

Just Right for a Relaxing Beach Break

We've stayed in both more expensive and cheaper all-inclusives in the Caribbean. While this is nowhere near the most luxurious resort you can stay at, it hit the perfect level for us for this trip. Here are some details: - the beach is terrific. Lots of shade (portions of the beach are shady throughout the morning, which we loved, but you can always find those sunny sections if that's your thing!) There are almost no waves and you can walk out in the crystal clear water for a long distance and still not be over your head. You need to reserve chairs by 8 or 8:30am or you're out of luck, especially if you're looking for shade. - staff is friendly and polite. There may be some waits at the bar or restaurants, but the staff is always hustling and plentiful. - activities were a bit "meh" for us. There aren't a lot of them. My husband was disappointed that they only organize volleyball on Saturdays, so the games were all pickup and very hit or miss. - food. The buffet is quite good, far better than other similarly priced resorts we've stayed at. It is a bit on the smaller side in terms of variety but what is on offer is of a good quality. The specialty restaurants were good as well, though the portions are pretty small and the waits for food/courses can be loooong (Bordeaux in particular -- they have to ferry the food in from the main kitchen and it's a hike!) Afternoon snacks at the Barefoot Grill were nice. The Coco Cafe is open all day for ice cream and coffee drinks. - gym. The gym is quite small. There are a few weight machines and plenty of free weights. One bike, four or five treadmills, and one elliptical-type machine. - pools. Two pools, not huge. One with a swim-up bar. Pool area can get a bit rowdy in the afternoon. - rooms. All rooms are oceanfront and the view is great. Rooms are a bit outdated, but perfectly functional for a beach stay. Bed was comfortable and, to me, that's the most important thing about the room! - drinks. Hmmm... a bit watered down, to my taste. I think if you want them a bit stronger or with better alcohol, you need to explicitly request it. We're not big drinkers, so this one wasn't a big deal to us. - sales pitch. You will be invited to a breakfast presentation for the vacation club. We gave a firm no and weren't bothered at all after the initial question.

Amazing place

From the first "welcome home" to our last minutes, our family has never been looked after better at an all inclusive resort! We upgraded once there and what a treat that ended up being...well worth it. We got to spend time in the Preferred Club lounge and can honestly say that Armando was our favorite server at the resort...was pleasant and wanted to wait on us with a smile, very sincere staff here! There were a lot more people to name but can't think of everyone. The food is great, the beach and Ocean are fantastic and the service is second to none! We would go back here in a heartbeat!!!

They did do a good job accommodating g

Old hotel with lots of issues.on a beautiful beach. Food was average at best but they did a good job with allergies. Constant problems with the door and keys. Plumbing issues. Small rooms. Not good communication of activities. Not great entertainment.
