Overall, we had a good time. Laid on the beach/near the pool, nice/friendly staff, great entertainment. However, the rooms had ants, beds were sandy before we even got there, food was okay, not terrific and the drinks were not so good. The worst part was that our bathroom constantly smelled like a sewer, and the room was never really cleaned....
