This property was not as expected. The rooms were not properly cleaned (hair was in the shower and the floor was not swept). We never even saw a cleaning person in the 3 days we were there. We were 3 people in a room and were given one towel and no linens on the second bed. The room needed minor repairs (like the exposed wires in the electrical outlet and the shelf that was hanging). The food was just ok and the dining staff wasn't friendly or accommodating. Cheap alcohol used in the drinks, but there was better alcohol available for purchase. During our stay, a camera crew was filming at the property and closed down the pools and restricted the areas we could go to. We were left with nothing to do at the resort, but take the 10 minute drive to the public beach. (I will say the transportation to the beach was always on time and reliable). Also, once the pools were opened in the afternoon, we had to carefully walk around all the equipment and wires and about 60 extra people in the pool area (not the relaxing resort we expected). This would have been ok had we been advised of this prior to our stay. We were very disappointed with our stay and will not stay again.

La propiedad es muy bonita y limpia, pero hay muchas cosas que pueden mejorar, por ejemplo, el checkin es muy lento aun sabiendo que el hoteel es muy concurrido, se llega temprano y no es posible hasta la noche entrar a la habitacion. La comida no es variada, en el bar nunca hay jugo de tomatee para preparar vodka, te ofrecen el de venta. nunca se ve un supervisor en ningtuna area.......

This property was not described properly. Did not have tv 5/7 nights were there. Explained it to them and was told someone was fixing it. Every day. On the last day our air conditioning went out in our room. They gave us a new room the last night after 4 times of going to the desk to ask about it since no one came to look. But the desk guy literally looked at me and said “go pack I’m moving your room” not nice at all. They never changed our bed sheets. It was 100° out. We were sandy and sweaty. We had to ask for new towels. The food was mediocre at best. They advertise two restaurants, however neither are included in all inclusive package. Buffet was the same every day for breakfast and lunch. Got old. We went off site two days to find something else. Entertainment at night was not well organized. Very few fluent English speakers. I’m not fluent at all in Spanish. But even trying to order a rum and coke seemed to be an issue. This was our honeymoon and we were highly disappointed. The area was beautiful. So we made the best of it. We walked into the little town a couple times. Shuttle for beach runs every 30 mins so we were told. So when we were ready to head back we should not have had to wait for a full hour. I highly recommend attempting to find a better place. I wish we would have.

I arrived at 5:45 pm. I waited over an hour to be checked in. One of the rooms was not ready. Once ready, there were no towels and it took almost two hours for the staff to provide them.
