We arrived home on 5/22 and we had a lovely time. I will list the positives first: Clean resort, with lovely staff. . The pools and beach (private) are great and their drinks are awesome. The only true complaint I have is the food. I understand that they have to cater to people from all over the world, but it...

It was our first time staying at an all-inclusive resort, and we were left with very little to complain about. Since we arrived earlier than check-in the concierge recommended that we have lunch at Thalassa to kill some time beforehand. Once our room was ready, the bellboy loaded our luggage in a golf cart and drove us to our room....

“We stayed in Building 46 and Room 29 which overlooked the pool. It was furthest from the beach which wasn't a big deal, and closest to the nicest restaurant which was a great plus because we could determine from our balcony if there were tables available outside before arriving. Our most favorite attraction to this room was being able to sit on our balcony while watching the live entertainment by the pool. This was great! ”
