I know people are entitled to an opinion but some need to get real...... The food choice is very good compared to some...

We had to rely on some very rudimentary Spanish lol. The outlets were not US so you will have to get an adapter. Which they provide for a deposit...

The rooms were great! The bed wasn't the most comfortable I've slept on, but it was still better than most places I've stayed for the price. The food is your typical buffet that you would get on a cruise ship or other resorts. I wish they had more authentic cuisine, but it's in all-inclusive, so no need to be extremely...
