My large family and I planned this trip more than 9 months in advance. We asked for rooms close to each other and they placed the 27 of us all over the property.

The rooms were nice in the Towers and the service was excellent. The Royal Service was worth it! Nice pool and staff. There are no rooms with a view which is kind of disappointing. The beach is fine but it has quite a few people trying to sell you stuff. The food was great . I loved their staff!
