I've been to several all inclusives and this one was a little lacking in several areas. The property was beautiful including the pools, beach, grounds. However the resort is just too big, people everywhere, making it difficult to walk around. It was hard to get a chair by the adult pool as there were only about 15 of them. Beach...

Stayed here for a week Feb 20-27, 2015. Was a little worried going, given all the mixed reviews. My one line summary is this: great overall hotel with a few shortcomings - if you're looking for an above-average all-inclusive, this will probably be great; if you're expecting top-notch 5-star treat-you-like-royalty resort, this may not meet your expectations.
