    • Liked: Amenities

    Pros: the Pool is big and clean. Food is tasty. La alberca está grande y limpia. La comida es buena. Cons: los cuartos están lejos de la alberca y restaurantes. Nuestro cuarto encontramos 2 cucarachas. Según es todo incluido pero si quieres pedir más bebidas oh alimentos al cuarto es un cargo extra. La gente de despierta alas 6AM para apartar camastros (que ni usan). Unos trabajadores te dicen fosa información. Me gusto ver que la comida del buffet no se desperdicia y los empleados pueden comer. Lo malo es que según cierra el buffet alas 11AM y alas 5PM pero media hora antes ya están recogiendo comida y los empleados empiezan a a servirse comida y no te dan chanza de servirse comida. Oh si quieres pedir algo más ellos ya dejan de atender antes de cerrar el buffet. Las bebidas son pésimas. De tantos pedidos no las preparan bien y ni lavan bien los vasos. No recomiendo este lugar. Cons: rooms are far away from pool and restaurant. We found 2 roaches in our room. You pay all inclusive and they want to charge you if you ask for drink refills or food in your room. By 6am all the chairs around the Pool are reserved with towels but you never see them being used. I liked to see that food is not wasted and they allow employees to eat from the buffetS however they say the hours end at 11AM and 5PM but every day 30-40 minutes before you seen food being put away and all the restaurant staff is serving their plates getting in your way and you stuck with nothing.
