Great stay for the price!
Posted May 12, 2017
We had a very easy check in with no lines and was able to get into our room pretty quickly upon arrival. The rooms are fairly basic, but clean and comfortable. The bathroom is a bit awkward with the door taking up too much space and difficult for 2 people to be in at the same time, but overall nice room with balcony. The food at the restaurants were good and reasonable prices compared to others outside the resort (we ate at Seaside, and DaVinci's). We did not use any of the bar services as they had very good happy hour prices at the bars all around our hotel on the beach. The palapa reservation system just is not the most desirable situation that you can ask for, but the staff play games and make it a bit more fun to wait and you are still on the beach and in the shade while waiting for an hour and a half to get your shade the next day. The beach is beautiful and clean, and the pools are very nice and everything outside is within walking distance. There is no need to do all inclusive as it cost us so much less to do without it. This is one of the most economical stay on the beach and you get all you need unless you are expecting 5 star. We are used to doing very nice all inclusive stays in Sandals and AM Resorts, so this was a new experience for us, but with the friendliness of the island and the great options nearby, we will definitely be back in the future.
