For an economical all inclusive, this was not too bad. Food was ok... if you don't mind eating with stray cats, running around the dining area. The entertainment was horrible, but they tried.... Doubt I would return

The staff and overall environment was excellent. The site is close to the beach and you have the option of swimming and hanging out at the resort pool or the beach. The rooms were clean and house keeping service was excellent. The only issue, which was minor is the internet connection.

Loved the resort! It’s not a huge hotel so it was easy to get around. The food is delicious and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Beautiful updated decor. The only thing I didn’t love is that there was no disco or dancing.

Extremely disappointing

Pros: The staff
Cons: cleanliness, shows, activities, please remodel or update!, liquor
Check in/checkout was a breeze and the staff is very friendly. The room could of used an extra cleaning. I heard another guest complaining of room cleanliness and when I mentioned it towards the end of our stay the front desk staff asked if I had requested my room to be cleaned when I arrived! I should arrive to a clean room. The resort definitely needs plenty of remodeling. There is not much to do on the resort after 9pm. The "shows and activites" are not entertaining whatsoever. I suppose if you have children or an elderly couple, it could fit your needs. Although I did not travel with my child, I took a peek into the kids room and I was not impressed. I would never leave my child there. Towels! Why is it so difficult to get a towel. We had to carry around a towel card to get one blue towel. At one point, I told a staff member I would be back for a towel and he clearly stated, "Get a towel now because there might not be any towels left later on!" I asked for extra towels for my room and the staff would not give it to me unless I immediately gave them the other towels from the room. The food was a hit or miss. The liquor was horrible except from the Brugal but that was tiresome after some time. Luckily the staff was really kind and helpful during our stay. I would never go back to this resort nor would I recommend it to anyone.
