    No Kids Club / Great beach

    My family were there in July and since we booked last minute we couldn't stay in the resort we have been to in the past. The website said they have a Kids Club and so we expected to have a club where our daughter could go and play with other kids while we got a little time alone at the beach or to go out for supper. They do not have this type of service. Their idea of a club is an employee who will arrange games or a craft (when they are available) or if there are enough kids, but parents must be present and responsible even if they are doing an activity. If you aren't concerned with this and are OK with food that is pretty standard fare buffet, then you will likely enjoy the resort. The beach is great and the place is small/quiet and the staff are very pleasant.

    Most fun vacation our family has ever taken. The people were so welcoming and were always active and always getting people involved even if they were hesitant and did not speak their language. Service was amazing. Always asking if we needed anything or if anything was wrong. Bruno, Carlos, Manuel, Salvador (and all the other staff) were always on their feet and always very kind. The food was great and everything was always cooked nicely and tasted great. There were always new activities during the day whether it was water volleyball, beach volleyball, water polo, or bingo. Ceci, Jimmy, Juan and Ezequiel (Cheke Boy) always made sure we were having fun and we were involved. Overall we would most definitely come back and we thank all the staff as we appreciated all they did for us while we were there. Love, The Canadian Power Rangers <3
