The resort is nice and very clean.. the staff is very friendly ,and always willing to help.. the food is HORRIBLE!! The buffet they put a mix of items in the same container all mixed in, without even labels, so you don’t know what anything is.. the restaurants a la carte are also horrible. My kids could never eat pizza there, cause they put like an orange sauce in it and the cheese doesn’t even taste like it.. The beach is full of rocks, you can’t even go in the water without scratching yourself..definitely not going back!!

I enjoyed the property very much. Plenty of activities and enjoyment to be taken in all around. I enjoyed the wildlife and the beach! The staff was always helpful and cheerful. The buffet area was kept clean and organized. The food in the buffet was good but after a week of the same options, a little change during the week might have been nice. I only went to 2 restaurants on the property. I did not enjoy the Italian restaurant but the Japanese restaurant was a delight. I would recommend this resort to my friends and family.
