Property was very clean place was beautiful the only thing was entertainment needs improvement like shows, pool activities beach activities food was great drinks taste like juice no liquor in rooms they should with the pandemic provide nip bottles in the rooms (minibar). They charge you for wine with room service. Only disappointment was that!!! this is an all inclusive property. and having to go out your room to go to the bar to get liquor or get charged for wine service to the room was very inconvenient and disappointing.
