Huge resort, great food overall, bit of a problem upon check-in, but otherwise it was great. Need more beach towels, oftentimes couldn't get a new one, or one at all. Great for kids, yeah kids club, those ladies are awesome. If you are in building 18 on 2nd floor, Ann Marie (house keeping) is awesome!! Loved her!

Overall it is not so bad. The pool is very good, the room as well. The main problem is that they don't have air conditioning in the restaurants. It makes the deserts and the cheeses look bad. The main restaurant need a little more variety of food and it was mostly the same food all week.
