This facility is not all inclusive, my husband and I went for are anniversary and It was horrible.. the have only one place for drinks that is in the main lobby only.. the rest they only offer juices and beers only and you have to get it no waitress around. We have been in a other all inclusive resort like in (Cancun, Dominican Republic, Jamaica , ext and this are Considered all inclusive resort not like this one that you have to get your on stuff and the cost is even more than the usual resorts we are very disappointed about this experience thank God that we just stay two days in this resort we really really have a bad taste about this not interested no more to come to any of the all-inclusive the Camron resorts, and another thing they try to sell you the upgrade. They bothering you since the day you get into the resort until the end of your state it is horrible day to get there it’s very messy it’s just not a good five it’s not all inclusive it’s a lie
