We'll go back!

Pros: Family friendly, relaxed
Cons: Decor!
This place is an oasis if you are traveling with little ones (my boys are 23 months and almost 4). The airport experience was a bit of a nightmare (filling out four excessively long and complicated customs forms is ridiculous-- bring a black or blue pen and be prepared to fill out EVERYTHING!!) and we waited in line for almost 2 hours-- did I mention that I have a toddler and a preschooler? Once we finally got on the private shuttle, things improved immensely. Lorenzo, our driver, was great with our two boys and the air-conditioned, quiet ride (my husband and I grabbed beers-to-go at the outside airport bar) was awesome after the travel chaos. As others have also mentioned, the arrival experience was wonderful. Fruit juice or rum punch and a kind receptionist were waiting. The rooms were clean and the layout with two upstairs bedrooms and a small family area/kitchen downstairs was perfect for us. The decor was dated and some of our doors didn't shut, but, you know what? We didn't really care. We wedged our flip flops under our sons' door when they slept (and they slept!! exhausted after all day fun play in the pool and at the playground). Our nanny, Evelyn, was fantastic. Calm, professional and serene, she arrived every day at 9 by meeting us at breakfast and then helped us get our boys into bathing suits and sunscreen. We had just the right amount of time to ourselves and plenty of playtime with the boys. It was a great experience.

Nice Family Vacation!

Pros: The Nanny!
Would highly recommend this resort for families with children. The staff is awesome. The food was very good and always available. The rooms and grounds where always clean. But the best part was our nanny, Yolando. She took great care of our 15 mo and 3 year old sons. She was always available to stay late, to put the kids to sleep. We will be returning soon.
