We were initially booked in building 17, which was quite a ways from the beach and pool. We were moved to building 02 the next day, which made our stay much nicer. The staff was great!

We loved this resort. It's beautiful. There's a ton of walking however. I really feel the beach was at least half a mile from our room. The food was good but be sure to make reservations early to ensure you get in for dinner. There are peacocks everywhere which I personally loved. It added to the ambiance! The lobby is...

Incredibly beautiful resort with a wonderful spa to match. After a stressful flight I signed up for a 50 minute massage with Gladys Dominguez. It was so relaxing that my only disappointment was it ending too soon. In fact, I signed up two days later for 80 minutes and wished it was two hours.
