While the grounds is beautiful! The rooms could use updating. Staff are extremely friendly. Need to expand breakfast and lunch selections. Great views from my hotel room. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay.

This Property has a very nice charm to it. Grounds and pools were very well maintained. Food selections are limited however they were more than satisfactory. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms need a refresh.

This was the worst experience of my life of travelling and I travel ALOT! I chose this resort because of the reputation and the advertised sanitation and safety protocols in place for COVID. Let me start by saying NONE were implemented. Guests did NOT wear masks, tables and chairs were NOT wiped or sanitized between guests, food was buffet style for breakfast and lunch so guests shared the same serving utensils, touched the lids to serving dishes and plates, were crowded into the food area with n social distancing whatsoever and because the majority of guests did not wear masks they were breathing and talking all over the food. It was quite disgusting and shocking!! I’ve been to 2 star resorts with much better protocols in place. Services advertised are non-existent and the resort is 2 hrs from the airport and an hour minimum from excursions. You will be crowded into a bus with others who choose not to wear their mask and it is not enforced. Windows don’t open either in the the bus. There is no daily trip to the mall or Old City as advertised as complimentary either. Entertainment is at of hours and doesn’t always even happen. Example-kayaking at 7am and we waited an hour before leaving. The menu in the restaurant does not change so it’s the same every night with limited options and small portions. The biggest shock? COVID tests are inaccurate and unorganized. A lot of people testing positive which isn’t shocking. An acquaintance tested positive and was allowed to go to the pool and walk around. This person then went to get another test same day which was negative. Other people were told they could not get another test. Some people were picked up and brought to the government facility 24 hrs later!!! The info on my test and my spouses test was inaccurate-I did not have a last name, spouses date of birth was very wrong, it was recorded that we both had different tests which was wrong. Test results for us took 3 days and the corrections were finally made 15 minutes before boarding the bus back to the airport. To say this whole experience was stressful is an understatement! I would not recommend and will definitely never return.

Our Unlimited Vacation Club representative Yannyreth, was wonderful. She made sure we had everything we were looking for in our vacation. Making sure we were scheduled for our Covid PCR test to return home not to mention making sure we had a nice room upgrade arranged. in the Preferred members pool area, we met Zanchez who was just a great person who took care of our drinks and ensured that our names were raked into the Sand! always remembered us by our first name and made the trip memorable! All the staff were friendly and polite.

We were very disappointed with the resort rooms and the minibar stock especially when you are in the preferred club. The furniture was dirty, the bathroom door needs to be replaced the wood is coming apart at the bottom They are in need of an upgrade. A variety of food was not available at the resort. Don't get taken by the preferred room upgrade they are just like the nonpreferred suites.
