I had a good first impression when we first drove up to resort. The front desk was very slow checking us in and the guy forgot our bracelets for the all inclusive until I reminded him! We ended up in a room on the second floor facing the parking lot, and the shower had a really low water pressure.

I had a wonderful one week vacation at this resort. It's a really well maintained property. Loved the pools, ocean access and activities. Luis, one of the activity boys was so enthusiastic and energetic. He and the other performers put on a nightly show and shows throughout the day that were entertaining and well done. I also liked the restaurants...

The staff are outstanding. The rooms are very clean and luxurious. The pools are very nice too. However, the food in all three restaurants was very disappointing. The pizza was especially inedible. The beach is not very nice as it is small and rocky in the water.

This resort is 32 years old and many guests are devotees who have been coming for years. Very clean, courteous staff, Decent location, short bus ride to town. But it is dated and a bit down in the heels. Not much beach but pretty pools and 2 restaurants on site.

I had a fun time making new friends on the staff at VDP plus renewing friendships with those employed there for the past 15+ years.
