The beach , people , snorkeling are all great. The food is good , the fish and fruit are very good but the variety is limited, still you will not go hungry. The resort itself is older but very clean and nice. If you are looking for the five star Hilton this may not be for you, but if you want a nice vacation with a super beach lots of beach loungers great staff and lots of room to move around this might be the place for you. We loved it.

We stayed here the week of Jan 29, 2018. We booked way back in August of 2017 and at the time of booking we requested a queen or king bed. The check in process was nice and quick. Room was not ready when we arrived so had lunch and toured the facility. When we finally got to our room, surprise - 2 double beds. After unpacking, and going for a swim, back to the room to get ready for dinner and lo an behold, wasps, or the Central American version have taken over the patio area, so not much chance to sit out there. Complained at the front desk and requested another room. We're told there's another group coming in and until they are settled in, no room available. Next morning, get up to shower and no hot water. Another walk to the front office. Finally spoke to the Sunwing rep who told the front desk to move us. The rest of the week was uneventful as we were in a nicer room with 2 king beds, working hot water. Room was updated and very nice. Food was your basic pasta, pork and chicken, with beef a couple of times during the week. Breakfast had bacon only once during the week. The beach is really nice. We started snorkeling this trip and that made up for some of the shortfalls. Leonita(?) on the front desk was really nice to deal with and most helpful. Alvin and Tanya in the dining room made sure you had everything you need to make a meal an experience. They really looked after you. We rate the room only 3 because honestly, the first room was a major disappointment.

Spend a week there with friends Great Beach,clear waters, no crazy waves or undertow so great for families who have younger children. i wouldn't recommend for families with older children or teens...they will get bored quickly. This resort is for divers / snorkeling freaks for sure...paradise for that!

Rooms in building 4 (anyways) where updated, clean and not an issue at all. Maid provided fast friendly service and we always had fresh clean towels....please note, there are no hairdryers in any rooms so bring your own or you will have to borrow the one and only from the front desk every time you want to use one.

Food was amazing and the waiters Eric and Alvin where top notch...tip them generously! Drinks where okay. Sad that a shot of coconut rum would cost an extra 8 *US. Very small plastic cups so bring your bubba Beer in a can was a bonus. After 10pm no bar is available so if you are looking for a late night of drinks on the beach stock up before 10pm.

Resort run down, pool not really used. Swim up Bar not functioning BUT the beach makes up for no pool. The young man who rakes the beach is a non stop worker...he keeps the beach clean and raked - this guy deserves a raise. In the sun all day ...always smiling and giving you the thumbs up..tip him too!

There are other more expensive resorts with fancier drinks and coffee bars (something else i was sad to not see there) but this a place to just take it easy..eat well, rest, read on the beach etc

Took lots of day trips with a local guy whom we met. So much to see in this beautiful country...

Room tip: All rooms have water / beach view. Building 4 is newly renovated and quite nice.

What can I say...l loved it. Both beaches were beautiful. The accessibility to the reef for snorkeling was incredible. In regard to the room, it was large, a/c was new and worked great. Fridge worked perfectly. There was a large selection of channels to watch on tv. The balcony door worked perfect (a first for me on my travels). The only cons.. the water was Luke warm at best, the view from the balcony (end room) was not the greatest. The food was alright typical of an all inclusive but the BEER, for me was heaven. The luxury of having your own beer can pulled from the ice or the fridge was....well....perfect. It sure beat the usual plastic cup with warm draft that you get at other destinations/countries. The staff was amazing with a special shout out to Santos who raked the sand on the beach non-stop and collected the trash. The beach was meticulously cared for. The entertainment staff were friendly and engaging especially Walter. The resort was large enough to walk around with a lot of security guards hidden discreetly. To sum it up, this place is perfect for the budget minded traveler who wants it all. I look forward to returning!

We and another couple stayed just for one night. The location on its own island is very secure but the facilities are tired. Since we booked last minute I am sure we got the crappy rooms. The food was very average with occasional tasty dish and drinks included were limited in variety. ( The staff were very friendly) Affordable diving and snorkeling all around the island.
I would rate the resort a low 3 star but maybe other rooms are better than ours.

Good evening Bonei ,

All our rooms are refresh from the 2 last months so we are sorry you didn't like it. However I'm glad to read you like the private island of the Resort and our dive center.

About the drinks I apologise if the 20 kind of cocktails we offer weren't those you like :(

However, I hope to see you soon to note the changes we keep on doing to improve our service every day!

THanks for your visit,

Fantasy Team
