My husband, myself and our 12 year old stayed for a week in July. Have to say, was one of the best vacations we've ever had! Food: Most all inclusive resorts you dread when it's time to eat.

I have rated this hotel excellent although I found the bars,(at least inside the hotel),to be poor. I was on a relaxing family holiday with my wife,(the Dragon),and two daughters.Had I been more interested in getting drunk it would have rated lower,but I do like to taste the rum in my coke. The bar staff were very slow at times...
