    You can’t beat the experience for the value. I loved every moment of it. I will certainly be on the lookout for offers from this resort in the future. I can’t wait to get back down here, and i just returned.

    Average, nothing special. Upgrade is not worth the money. Food repetitive and poor selection. Children at the bar is a problem for me. Shower design is terrible, needs a door or more coverage. I do not think we will return to this location.

    We absolutely loved our stay here! We felt this resort was on the smaller side and some days (and evenings) were quiet), but personably because it wasn’t high season. On the plus side of that, we would walk on the beach at night and there wasn’t a single person in sight which was lovely. Food: We ate at all a-la-carte restaurants for dinner but one, and found them to be very good, well planned menus. Very much appreciated that we could just show up and get in. Some restaurants had waits, but not long at all. Our favs were the Italian, steak house, Bloved and tapas!! The buffet was disappointing for breakfast lunch and dinner. There were all of the usual salad bars, pasta station and appetizers, fresh cooked meat/fish which were average, at best, but not a large selection of fresh Mexican food, which would have been really nice!! The sushi rolls were good. We also enjoyed the taco truck, crepes (Mexican and veg) and the fresh juice bar, and coffee shop! Tip- if you prefer not to eat at the buffet regularly, I highly recommend upgrading to privileged so that you have the Bloved restaurant to eat breakfast and lunch a-la-carte!! This absolutely made our trip worthwhile for the freshest Mexican breakfasts and lunch, among other things. Tip- if you eat snacks around the pool (especially if from the crepes or taco truck), the Coatis will be all over you and when not looking, steal the food right off your plate! Don’t feed them on purpose! Rooms: since we upgraded to privileged, we stayed in building 6 close to the pool which was also close to the restaurants and beach. Very comfortable bed!! The room was well cleaned and well stocked daily!! Air conditioning worked well! Pool: it is large!!! More than enough pool areas and depths to accommodate everyone! Beach: beautiful and well maintained and so many places to sit that you should always find a spot, no problem! Service: this was one of the highlights of our trip! Service was exceptional from everyone at the front desk, to the pool bar servers, beach servers and the restaurant staff, and where do I even begin with the Entertainment staff!!! Animaroma team was on fire from the beginning of their day right to the end of their day at the shows!! They work so hard to show guests a good time and get them involved in activities! They were a real treat!! All of the above suffices to say - please don’t forget to tip!! Tip your wait staff, servers, bartenders and housekeeping staff. It is well earned and they so appreciate it. We will absolutely return again!

    Exhausted and unhappy.

    I’m still tired. I never got to sleep when I wanted to sleep. Between the theater and the disco and the little kids, there was always some disturbance. Please ask the older folks if they want a quiet place. I was put as close to the theater alas one could get.

    Beach, pool, and service are outstanding. Room’s need updating but who’s in their room when have this location. Long walkable beach with only 3 resorts nearby, tons of wildlife, bring mosquito spray for evenings.
