    We stayed one week here and here are the pros and cons Pros - great and quick check in - friendly bar staff - food was exceptional even though a bit repetitive - activities daily - two options to book tours and activities with ( recommend the lady by the pool) - clean rooms - snack bar always had food Cons - no WiFi in the rooms - not all staff spoke English - only two English tv channels Also expect to run into some wildlife including iguanas and raccoons

    Great beach to walk and pick up shells. Swimming spot right in front of the hotel is not as good but if you can walk to the other side of the river there are better places. This is an all exclusive hotel and the food is good and has cocktails and good drinks that are included. Buildings are OK but some of the buildings need better maintenance.

    The hotel is great. But the service is terrible. 1 there are not enough parking lots, and they really dont care about what is going to happen to your car. 2 if you ask something to the staff. they are very rude and probably they are going to help you. If you can, stay in a RIU they will provide more services ans staff is not this rude. Good thing, there is a very funny group of racoons in the hotel.

    Beautiful property, excellent service! The buffet food was quite good and very well presented. Serving areas were kept very clean and well-supplied. Hot items were kept warm without drying the out and the fruit and salad items were kept chilled just right. Our family doesn't consume alcohol, so we appreciated the wide variety of non-alcoholic beverages. We especially appreciated the non-smoking rooms and public areas. The entertainment was fun and created a festive atmosphere. We visited during the 'rainy season', which may explain a slight mustiness of the room, but it was not overwhelming. The staff (every one of them) was eager to ensure our complete satisfaction. It was a great stay that we intend to repeat!

    The hotel is a bit of budget place, all inclusive with so-so buffets for food & drink. But a great location, accommodating staff, and very inexpensive for what you get. Room was large, the Spa was very nice with great massages.
