    There was always a long wait for service at the front service desk. Everyone was complaining about this too. Otherwise, very friendly staff, especially Marcos and Juan the security guard. Very clean and very attentive staff. Second time there, would return.

    Ideal for families who are looking for quite and relaxed vacations. Lots of things to do on premises and location is second to none. Overall staff members are very gentle and willing to help, except @ the reception.
