The property is gorgeous, by the beach it was great to have beds by the jacuzzis lovely layout. They don't provide enough water for the rooms we were 3 people and they left 2 small bottles for us to share I guess, and the bathroom not great. The toilet kept getting backed up and it took for ever to get...

First of all, we couldn't pass up the free exchange fee and the $20 per person per day all inclusive. I had my money's worth every day after breakfast and before hitting the beach. The VIP has nice king size beds and canopies that we used everyday. The trick is to get there and grab a spot early in the...

The stay was amazing. I have been here before and I always have a wonderful time. There are options to make dinner reservations at the on-site dining (many different cuisine options) or you can eat at the buffets. There are a lot of activities and the entertainment is great. ChuFly is so nice and made it even more fun.

The rooms we stayed in were average and clean. The beds were not the most comfortable and neither were pillows. We did do the all inclusive thing, which was new to me, and definitely promotes a propensity to stay at the resort- which is great if that's your thing. I didn't really understand the early morning (7:30-8) wake-up calls and...

We stayed here for seven nights on a Groupon deal. We stayed in building 4 and had VIP blue bracelets that apparently let the staff know we were there on a Groupon because a couple of staff members made that comment.
