    So we’ll begin with the rooms we (12 people) booked and paid for 8 months ago that were not available. I read reviews about this but thought “no way, they must have done something wrong”. That is totally not the case. We had 3 families of 4 each that all booked separately and yet none of us had the rooms we reserved. We were moved to 3 different rooms on day 1 before we finally found one that was acceptable to us (although we are owed a refund for the difference in rooms/views). The rooms we settled on were beautiful although the sewer smell daily was a bit much. The Timeshare sellers were annoying and over the top. They wouldn’t take no for an answer and even called us rude when we tried to politely decline for the 45th time in a week. Pools & beaches were beautiful and we enjoyed the excursion of the quads and buggies for sure. Front desk staff wasn’t the friendliest but some were more helpful than others. My advice is to go someplace else that welcomes American visitors and doesn’t overbook rooms. Gorgeous places in the Caribbean are a dime a dozen, spend your dime someplace else!!

    Avoid like the plague

    This place is in a word, horrendous. Let’s lay out the facts. Registration is never a sure thing with the folks checking you in trying to multitask and thus ending up doing nothing well. They appear as though they are doing you a favor and hoteling you for free. Your registration will have issues for certain. Once you check in and make you way thru what it looks like well-kept grounds, you are slapped in the face by the feculent stench emanating from what it appears to be an overflown cesspool. The smell is unbearable and ubiquitous anywhere you walk. You enter the buffet restaurant where they have a ‘VIP’ area where the tables have tablecloths and a ‘regular’ area where there are only placemats on bare tables which advertise the other resort locations. So subtle. This is where service hits rock bottom. You sit at the table and no one comes to ask if you want a drink at all. It seems you have to go and get the drink from the fountain yourself. You come back with your glasses of water or juice and place on the table so you go and get food. When you return, the table is cleaned and you water is gone as the table has now been set for someone else. I kid you not. So you have to get the food and the water at the same time if you want to eat in peace. You need to bring the dessert with you during the first trip as well, else you will have to sit at another table as the original one will be cleaned as soon as you get up. It seems efficiency is not measured by the service offered to the guests but how quickly they can setup and clean a table. Appalling. The food is pretty much bland, no taste and there is no creativity displayed from the cooks at all. As you step outside to try and enjoy a bit of fresh air, there are so many people smoking you get overwhelmed. I’d say the folks serving at the bar are the only pleasant people in this place. The music played is literally a mess. They seem to have plucked a kid off the street and asked him to learn on the job. He cannot mix to save his life. People trying to dance just give up as he cannot seem to know what playing with flow is. If you want to relax and enjoy a nice day outside, this is not the place. If you want to experience good service from waiters and enjoy good food, this is not the place. If you want to breath air free of fecal matter smell, this is not the place. If you are looking for a great time with your family, a great resort and have a memorable stay, do not consider this place. I, for one, will never visit this one again.

    This resort is perfect for families and couples alike. The pools are beautiful and the grounds are gorgeous. The rooms were comfortable and the meals were fantastic. The best thing about this resort is the men and women that work there. They were always helpful and greeted us with kindness and a smile. We loved our stay at this wonderful resort.

    Not worth your money,

    Went here with my girlfriend this juli for 16 days, the first room we had (3846) was a renovated room and the hygiene in the badroom was the worst, blackness everywhere, we booked the standard room so we took it anyway because we didn’t expect much out of it anyway, we didn’t have a hot shower for 3/4 days and there was barely any water coming out of the stream so we decided to let someone check it, he checked it but it didnt make a difference. After 5 days i got food poisoning ( intestinal infection ) from the central buffet so that is what really pissed me off, so i complained about this and (Jorge) the hotel supervisor was a great help and really tried his best to make this work for us, he offered us a room with a good shower and made a compensation for us to let us eat in one of the restaurants. The staff of this hotel is for 2/3rd really great and really try to make this holiday a great experience for everyone, but the hygiene in this hotel is bizar! They put so many people in this hotel that theres no beds free for anyone anymore so that people have to lay on the ground with their towels. The owner / organisation should pump some money into improving the hygiene and not think about money alone by putting so many people in this hotel that it will annoy alot of people, in the days i’ve been here i’ve experienced fights over beach beds etc. In the evening drunk italians at the bar ruining the fun for little kids by yelling like crazy etc etc. I honestly think for the amount of money you pay for this hotel you can get way better somewhere else, i’ve stayed in alot of resorts and never experienced it that the hotel is exploding with guests and the hygiene is that worse + the plates at the buffet are dripping fat after being cleaned. Also the power in the whole resort has turned off 3+ times in the time we stayed here, no wonder why if i see how things are made ( see picture ) Overall: The staff is great, especially Jorge but the hotel itself is not worth it.
