Reviewed yesterday NEW

I think this hotel is the cleanliest hotel i have been too. The staff is very good, and try to be helpful. There is a lot of walking at this resort, and way to many stairs for anyone older. I was surprised at the amount of walking we had to do. Lots of pools and bars.

Travelled with 7 girlfriends and had a blast! - rooms: very ok, much of the resort is not updated, so rooms are old and many have issues but they're clean and sufficient for sleep - resort: clean, and huge! Lots of stairs and things aren't very close but they have a shuttle that's convenient and takes you around the resort....

First, the pros: Beautiful grounds and ocean, great food with plenty of options, friendly and helpful staff, and very well maintained. We stayed in building 206, and although it could use some minor upgrading, overall it was a nice room and balcony that was quite clean. Contrary to some other reviews I came across, there were english tv channels and...

Food- If you are not a share holder or staying in the villas with a server.... it's not worth your time for breakfast. People depend on a great breakfast to start the day.

“Only less than a handful of the staff was pleasant. Everyone else seemed to be upset or bothered. After breakfast on day 2 I was told that I would be taken on a tour to see all the VIP areas. I told the gentleman that my daughter really wants to go to the beach. I was told he would take us. Come to find out it was a sales to of the whole resort to which ended up hours later with a sales manager being really aggressive with me that I needed to buy property. Hours later, no beach yet for my daughter and I could less about buying any property or VIP at this point with the sales managers attitude. After all of my experiences I will never return to this resort. ”
