This property is for senior citizens. Not what I expected. My friend and I were the only young people there. There are about 3 restaurants ON SITE but the rest you have to drive to and that means if the shuttle isn’t running (on weekends the shuttle doesn’t run) so you have to pay a taxi to go the destinations. And if you want to party you have to go on the strip where the taxi drivers overcharge you for being a foreigner. Overall, the food was okay it wasn’t great but it was doable, the rooms were clean and the staff was super friendly. I got there at 12pm and check in was at 4 pm. They let me check in 4 hours early and gave us a room. It was overall relaxing and fun if you’re with the right people.

The property was beautiful and accommodated our family wonderfully! The food was amazing! Our only critique is that the drinks could have been prettier and in better cups. Also, it would be nice for the WiFi to work outside the room at the pool and beach. Our least favorite aspect was our “personal concierge” who didn’t provide great service and who also, we realized, was only working to influence us to attend his timeshare presentation for the resort. He stood us up on two occasions to meet to familiarize us with the resort and make our dinner reservations, and frequently was very delayed in responding to us when we had questions. We eventually had to just ignore him and make our own plans each day. I wish the resort had been more up front about the arrangement and expectation there.

I’m usually a picky person so that fact I don’t have no major complaints about this hotel is amazing. I didn’t expect room service to come every day due to Covid but they showed up every day and restocked our refrigerator. The pool was amazing. I had a beach view. On some days there was seaweed but that didn’t bother anyone. The workers we always on the go making sure everyone was ok. I’m pretty sure I got asked like 20 times if I was ok or need something every time I was out by the pool. The food was good but I like the fact that if you have all inclusive (which I had) you can visit the sister hotels to eat lunch or dinner or hang out over there. There was shuttles available to take you and pick you up. Also every night was a different theme dinner. And if there wasn’t something you want the chef would make it for you. I recommend everyone do the all inclusive because literally it’s the best. I even got a massage and the ladies at the spa were amazing. I will be back.
