Pools are very good, but why when the gorgeous beach...

The overall stay was Average. The housekeeping was poor. The food was average. The view from the hotel was really nice. The mini bar in the room could have had snacks to eat, instead of only drinks. However, most of the staff was extremely friendly, and the beach was awesome!
