We could go on and on and on as in some of the other travelers reviews which we totally agree with (the positives, that is) there are simply no negatives and we cannot imagine for a second how any guest could write a general negative about this resort. Before we even arrived I e mailed the hotel two or three...

Hotel was very nice and had everything we needed or wanted. Great location on the beach and also nice pool areas. Some of the staff were not that friendly but our Butler Jorge was excellent. The 2 guys playing in the jazz bar every night were excellent and a real highlight.

Very nice resort. Lovely grounds, pool and bar area. Very well maintained and the service was, for the most part, very good. The all inclusive buffet was very good with a reasonable variety of food of a high standard. The only criticism of the buffet was that everything was a bit bland or "safe", nothing spicy or adventurous at all....

My husband and I stayed here for a week and got back yesterday. I have to say we loved this resort!!! The one thing that stands out is the staff, they really do make the difference to your stay. Our butler who was assigned to us went over and above her duties from helping us with trips, organising our a...

Lovely pools, good standard of accommodation and excellent service. By British standards the food and facilities would equal our 4 star but this is what we expected because we have been to Caribbean before. However, the service was 5 star. The only thing which slightly irritated me was the small amounts of wine poured at one time. This meant we...

The resort is very big. The beach is beautiful and the sea fantastic! Food is ok. We decided to buy the "diamond club": it allows to have a dedicated restaurant for breakfast and lunch and a "private" area at the beach (and few other services). Every morning we needed to wake up at 6.00 a.m. In order to take a...

I am the only customer service agent and after sales service manager for a 35 million dollar a year company and know what customer service takes. We have stayed at this resort several...

The welcome was impressive with a glass of Prosecco, the room OK but not 5 star by any standard. The balcony was great and we enjoyed our own pool nearby rather than going to the main pool. The resort is well laid out with a fabulous beach. Sunset is a must! The lobby bar and all drinks were great but...
