The property only have pools no ocean access. The front desk staff very friendly and helpful. The cleaning ladies done an awful job they don’t change the sheets even when you request it they pretend they don’t understand. We had to constantly asking for towels. The shower curtains are old and molding. The previous guest underwear was left in the room. On our last day our room was flooded because it rains. I will not be going there again . The only positive thing was the cultural performance they had on the weekend it was really nice. I would not be going there again.

the property has beautiful view to the ocean and the pools are good, however there are too many locals and the service wasn't good at all, had a restaurant by reservation which only includes one menu and the other menu needs to be paid. the front desk is always chaotic people complaining about having to pay for extra services when is all inclusive hotel. there was a guy in the front desk that we asked for his name and he give us a profanity word as a name. I arrived earlier to have a sooner check in and they keep me waiting 45 min.The property is good need more customer service and better food for his Alma restaurant. There are way too many kids and should have a section assigned for kids and other for adults since these locals are very explicit and don't watch their language in front of the kids. I won't recommended even thought the property is beautiful, the pictures are false advertisement my room wasn't what I expected and they only provide 2 towels and if you ask for more they say need to talk to a supervisor, find this ridiculous. I had been in the country for the past 2 weeks and this was very disappointing. The hotel looks like a local attraction and waitresses treat better certain clientele like Europeans and whites. I am a foreigner too and my service was horrible even thought I was the only person tipping they should be more friendly and attentive to others too. I was having higher expectations and want to book the Mallorca whala but after this place I'm unsure.
