The pools are large & no problem finding a spot to relax. The beach was big but a little rocky compared to other beach fronts in the area. They have a...

My fiancé and I came here for four nights in January 2017. We left after the first night. Some of my issues: 1) we stayed in Tower 4 on the second floor. Our "garden view" overlooked a barb wire fence with a couple Jamaican teens begging for money. This is not ok. Security came to our room at around 9pm...

The Resort is beautiful, but not all of the people. We visited here on a day pass with our cruise and for the most part met a lot of friendly staff members. The (male) bartender in the hotel was rude with responses and walked away in a mid sentence order. Considering that this is a beach resort, with an open...
