The servers and bartenders were amazing! We were treated special. Everyone was pleasant and I would love to go back just to see them, we made great friends with them and we miss them dearly. The trip was amazing and we didn't want to leave. Welinson, joci, rosado, and Roberto were the best, they have outstanding service.
