Don’t waste your money

ESeifin on Aug 08, 2022

If you are afraid from roaches, don’t go. If you want to loose wait, go and you will loose weight by not eating.you can live on fruits. It is a local resort and not for tourists. Beach is good, water is warm but dirty.

Set your expectations before you go

sherri4587 (Midland, Pennsylvania) on Aug 07, 2022

We tried to remain positive about our stay here (07/30-08/06), but as the week went on, things did not get better. 1. We were so glad we upgraded to the premium suite. We had two full bathrooms and were able to get reservations each night to the specialty restaurants. 2. The food in the specialty restaurants was good. You could choose from 2 starters, 1 soup, 5 entrees and 3-4 desserts. There’s not a lot of spice (even salt and pepper) used in the cooking. 3. The buffet was a nightmare. 4. This hotel is used by the locals so on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, it is packed. 5. Many of the guests and staff do not speak English and unfortunately we don’t speak Spanish so communication was difficult at times. We will definitely learn Spanish for our next trip to the Caribbean. 6. The hotel is mismanaged. The staff is overworked and understaffed. It was hit or miss on finding staff that was friendly. 7. The hotel is old, but still beautiful. It just needs a bit of an upgrade. 8. The day we were leaving, the toilets in both rooms clogged and almost overflowed. We had a great time and have good memories to share, but sadly, we would not recommend this hotel.
