We decided to stay at this resort after a rather difficult 2010 (New Year's eve arrival). Upon arrival, it was very clear that this was not going to be a perfect 5-star stay. Service at front desk was poor. The staff give you the impression that you don't really matter (very cold). Nor did they seem terribly knowledgeable about their... More

You can't write a review about this resort without first addressing the staff. They are all hard working and friendly. The wait staff bent over backwards for all of the guests and assisted them with whatever they needed. Jerry at the buffet is one of the best waiters I've ever encountered at an All-Inclusive. The entertainment staff was extremely friendly... More
