Liked the property. Rooms needs to be updated. Needs to have a policy of not saving pool chairs. Not fair when people save them then never return all day to use them.

Food was Ok. Some options. Don't waste time on the Sicilian Restaurant, food too little and flavorless. May find better pasta at other restaurants. Asian Restaurant was good, not many options but OK. Everything is buffet except for the Sicilian one. W The WORST the bedrooms: 2 Full size beds together. Not way to separate them. We were 3 adults and only 2 slept good, the one in the middle was horrible. Mattresses really hard (firm) and not very good pillows. Not blankets. The WORSE of the bedrooms was the smell of mold. My husband is asthmatic and they told us, we couldn't get another one cause they were booked. Bathrooms has not privacy at all. Not door and shower door is clear. My daughter had to shower when dad wasn't in the room or place a blanket on the shower door. Unlimited drinks were really good, really good quality. amount of chairs by the pool were too little. even though for the amount of people at the hotel, the pool was soooo crowded or the pool too little. Towels smelled. beach was clean and they did the best to removed the algae, but after one hour they piled up again. We loved the way they exchange activities with other RIUs around. NOT ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN. we have a 9 years old, trying to find something to do... and the club was specially for little ones. he wanted to be by the pool but we wanna be at the beach, meaning he was bored cause there was not activities for him to do. WIFI only good in the bedrooms or lobby. I will not go back to any RIU.

We had a courner suite. My husband and I could see the ocean from our balcony. There were two sliding glass doors. The room was huge, with a separate sitting area, dining area, foyer with a tranquil wall as you walked in. The wet bar with unlimited liquor was nice too. 😊

The gym and rooms need to be updated. I didn’t like that shower doesn’t have a door or privacy. I also didn’t like that the double beds were put together instead of two separate beds. I would recommend that restaurants serve more Mexican food.
