We stayed here last year and loved it. It is a bit older and so the rooms are kept up with love. Any issues we had were dealt with and the staff were super friendly and helpful. The resort is located quietly off the highway so a rental car was great as we were able to get out and explore without the buses. Lots of parking. Great entertainment if you want to stick around the resort and was family friendly. The beach wasn’t amazing but they said it was a bad time of year. The resort has everything you need if you chose to stay but is a quick drive to everything as well if you want to explore.

The entertainment team are all amazing, keeping everyone in the holiday spirit and getting everyone involved. Especially Arturo and Wilbert bringing the energy and good vibes every single day! Cleaners have the room looking beautiful daily. The restaurant staff have all been polite and accommodating. The beach bar staff have all been exceptional. Very attentive and keeping everyone happy ! By far my favourite bar out of the choices. The only downside so far is the seaweed on the beach which is natural and cannot be helped, but a short walk left down the beach you can find a lovely little lagoon! As an independent travel agent, I would highly recommend this hotel to my clients. I couldn’t fault it in the slightest and definitely living up to its 5* reputation.

DO NOT STAY HERE unless you want to get sick due to black mold, or if you hate eating edible food. This has been the absolute worst stay I have ever had. We are not picky people, we just want the food to be edible and the rooms to be in decent working condition. The shower ceilings were covered in black mold and the showers smelled disgusting. Day 3 my throat started hurting and I started feeling sick, probably due to the uncleanliness of this hotel. Some staff were very kind, but most cannot speak English or were just incredibly rude. Bianca in front of the Italian restaurant definitely ruined our moods and stay. The highway shut down on our way back from an excursion which left us to walk 2 miles back to the resort. We rushed over to the Italian restaurant where we had made a reservation. We told her what had happened and she looks at us, checks us in, and says “we have a dress code, you have to change.” So we walk 1 mile back to our room, change and walk back when we were already starving, exhausted, and hungry. Mind you, I was wearing a skirt and my boyfriend was wearing shorts. Nobody here is accommodating at all. When I addressed our concerns about our shower door and uncleanliness of our room to the concierge, they said they will send us a “complimentary amenity and get their maintenance guy fixing it asap” but none of that was ever fulfilled. After emailing them many times, they would always say that it will be fixed but it never was! I’m 99% sure that they just use ChatGPT to answer concerns and never actually fulfill them. The food here was absolutely horrendous. I LOVE all inclusive resorts for the food because it’s always upscale and delicious. This was the exception. You have to make reservations for every restaurant and we were not told about this until we had to find out for ourselves. Regarding this, the food was either overly salted, or just had absolutely no flavor. Now, the most important part is the beach and pool. The beach had mountains of rotting seaweed, leading to a horrible smell near the pool and buffet area. The pools were murky and looked very gross. None of the dining areas have AC and most buildings are very run down. Thank goodness we don’t drink because the alcohol is EXTREMELY low quality. We ended up spending an additional 1k on excursions so we could stay out of this hotel. We wished we listened to other reviewers. I do not recommend this hotel to anybody, please read others reviews and make a better choice!

Estelly Ramirez
Food and drinks were delicious! Great service, Aaron at the buffet restaurant was fantastic, Super friendly staff overall. Entertainment team is amazing, and provide great activities. The unfortunate part is if your wanting the best Beach front, this wasn't the best. Beach is quite dirty but the staff do there best to keep up with it. Also it was very hard to find beach chairs during the day. They need to find a way to have more for all tourist. Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable however in our room the AC didn't work too well even at full blast. But overall great place to get away.

LaShaunta Gandy
If you don’t listen to any reviews, please listen to this one. This resort was not pleasing at all. The service was horrible. Nobody could help with anything. It took us over a hour just to receive an umbrella to our room. Room service terrible and the food section was non existent. Everything seemed undone and unfinished as far as the building structure and it was buckets of water everywhere from leaking ceiling. I recommend no one to stay here! Stay far away!
