Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The only good thing about this resort is the beach, actually this property needs to be completely remodeled or demolished. The rooms smell bad, the vanity and shower is clogged, the refrigerator and microwave in very bad condition, the ac doesn't work well, the keys to enter the room do not work, they don't do room service, in general the building is in very bad conditions and the customer services is poor.

The room were old and smelled like mildew . The bathroom is small and need to be updated . The day we went to leave we picked up our bags roaches scattered everywhere. I guess the man in charge of the young men putting out beach chairs got into a yelling argument with one of the ladies waiting for a chair and they start picking up Beach chairs at 3:00. Only thing nice was the pool but we won’t go back

Nice beach . The circle was great to hang out at night and free shuttles. The rooms aren’t that nice but hell for the price to be right in the beach it’s worth it . Beds are a little rough but you only sleep so you can stick it out especially if your there to be bumming on the beach
