It’s a great hotel, we were very impressed with this all inclusive. We stayed for 7 nights so we had the chance to try out every restaurant. For the most part food is good. Lots of families with babies and little kids, super kids friendly, my 4 year old loved the kids club. The pools are great, beach is just ok. In our first night we stayed in a older building, the room was dated. Then we upgraded to the newer building, one apartment with two bedrooms, it was excellent, I could stay there for a mont! The staff were amazing except for the Mexican restaurant near the back pool, although we loved that spot, service was slow and confusing. The wine for the all inclusive is just ok, if you want to purchase wine it’s very expensive, they could do a better job on that. Loved the Mexican Fiesta ( open outside dinner Friday night) and the little plaza, very unique, I’ve never seen a hotel with that before. We will absolutely go back. Israel from the front desk was excellent helping us with room upgrade etc…

Lighting around hotel and to the room could’ve been better because it was very hard to get around after sunset. Overall a decent cost effective option for a last minute trip but not a place I would revisit.

My wife and I took a trip to this resort for Christmas and our experience was unforgettable. Our room was so spacious and modern, the staff was absolutely incredible, the food was great, the pool was massive and sparkling clean. I could spend hours talking about the many positives this place has. Here are my few negatives: 1. The beach is rocky and unswimmable. I spoke to a couple of staff and they said 500 meters to the right is a non-rocky beach. 2. It is not worth waiting in the long line at the hamburger stand or the pizza stand. The food did not offer much taste and was very basic. 3. Overall, the property could use more signage. There are lots of walking paths throughout that can be difficult to navigate. Here are some positives that stand out: 1. The service is outstanding. I want to say a huge thank you to Carlos and Giovanni at the poolside bar behind Lizzards, Bernando at the buffet, Eduardo our shuttle driver, Estafanie at the concierge, and Marco who was our phenomenal waiter for the private beach dinner. These people went above and beyond and made our experience so much better. 2. The landscaping and amenities are 10/10. Everything is super clean and fresh. 3. The pool pretty much flows throughout the whole property. If you want to sit in a tube and float, you can do that. If you want to sit a swim-up bar all day, you can do that as well. If you want to vibe with some poolside- music, you can do that, too. Learn some Spanish. It makes a difference.
