.The hotel food was repetitive and the coffee was terrible, they had no cream or half&half. .They didn't put alcohol in the drinks unless you ask for it and they don't tell you that you have to ask for it. .The room was small and one could barely fit in the shower.

Amazing

Room was incredibly far away. Like miles away from the beach. You have to catch a gold cart that is usually full as it passes you. Phone didn’t work in the room. Room got cleaned two times in our 7 days here. And that’s only because we physically walked down to the lobby and complained. Remember the phone doesn’t work? Food is ok. Same stuff at the buffet so it gets old after a few days. I would never come here again.

NEVER AGAIN

Medical clinic didn't have AC because it was "broken" that's what they told us, went there 3 times same thing, so it was like going to hell, excellent doctor, but the temperature was Goddamit hot. Food was kind the same, poor variations. Staff must wake up and actually help you out in their daily basics, they are hired for that right?
