The hotel offers a good all around inclusive pacakge which is affordable. Food is perfectly OK and available not only during the meal time but some sort of snack is also available in between. Drinks are good and abundant including alcoholic ones included in the package and are available around the clock. Beach is right across from the hotel (less than hundred yards) and perfectly swimmable although seaweed is a problem restricting the size of the area you can swim in. Pool is OK, and nightly shows by their entertainment staff is surprisingly good. Staff is very nice and helpful though only 1-2 are in commend of English. One being a true God sent, namely Tracy Powell at the reception. Wifi access is unexpectedly for a fee (though you may bargain) available only around the lobby, and intermittent due to weather. Rooms around the pool are small and tend to be inferior in quality and have a poor odor. The other rooms (in main building) are far superior, even nice and reasonably well equipped. The real problem is that the staff is hopelessly incompetent in maintenance, even of the simplest things, hence we experienced endless trouble in a leaking AC, faulty refrigerator, partially dysfunctional faucet, access to hot water in one room, non functional electric switches, etc. They were nice enough and moved us twice (we only stayed three nice) in time to a better room to offset the technical problems we ran into, but each room suffered from other problems among the above list.
