Hotel was pretty clean. AC was iffy room was hot and took a long time to cool down. Was denied access to the dinner Buffett because of my attire which was pretty covered up while other people of different ethnicities had the same thing on and yet they were allowed access. I was then told there was a section that stated dress code when you book the hotel there was nothing on Travelocity and nothing was said upon check-in. I also spoke to another guest randomly and they stated they knew nothing of dress codes. I had to then go spend over $100 on food and not including the cabs back and forth when I paid for all inclusive hotel. Oh and if you feel like staying in for the night forget about grabbing something to eat and going to your room you cannot take anything upstairs. Toilet was hard to flush ended up clogged and called they took 40 mins and I had to call twice. There was also a girl on my last night who was screaming for help from her balcony I don’t know if she got help but yeah but somewhere else.

We were greeted on arrival by Alex and he was exceptional theough our whole trip. He took care of all needs, introduced us to all receptions for the restuarants, and even founf me something to calm my stomach when I over did it. Could not have had a better trip and I owe that to him. Also, please tip your staff, all inclusive is for food and drink, not service. Bring tip money and you will be appriciated for it.
