The grounds were nice, the beach was okay, the people were friendly although don't speak hardly any English and the food was the worst I have ever experienced on a vacation. No seasoning, no taste, the smell of the buffet room was nauseating to my husband and I, so much that we went down the beach to eat and pay...

I will start this review by saying for the price, it was great. We enjoyed the staff, our room was beautiful (they were kind enough to upgrade us to a superior overlooking the pool on the 3rd floor, GORGEOUS). I highly recommend you request the 1000 rooms. They are renovated, clean, cool, and very comfortable. The food was mediocre. Nothing...

Overall, I enjoyed this vacation - however, I have to say that the company and fantastic weather were the reason - not the resort.

Nothing spectacular here. Definitely a 3 star resort. The food was average, nothing exceptional, and not terrible. The rooms were nice. The staff friendly, although not many English speaking. Often seemed to be lots of hustle and bustle doing nothing. The pools were very nice, but for some reason were closed at 7pm. The beach was nice if you could...

Building 6 was a great location!! It was by a great pool with a view of the ocean! They workers were trying to keep the seaweed off the beach day and night. The lobster in the Mexican restaurant was great for the extra 25.00 and the food was good in all of the other places.
