Our unit was amazing. Nicely furnished, kitchen fully stocked with blender, microwave, dishes, everything we could need. The only thing we wished for were more/better towels.
If being ocean front is not a priority for you this is a GREAT value. We were across the street from the beach so it was great.

Hotel was nice, its a very large compound, area-wise. We initially were in the 9,000 series rooms, which include a jacuzzi, but these rooms are roughly a 7-8 minute walk from beach (a nice walk, but not ideal). Do what you have to get a room near the beach, it is well worth it. All restaurants and bars and night activities are near beach (save for 2 restaurants that are in main lobby near the 9,000 series rooms, but it is better to walk the 7-8 minutes to those restaurants at night then to walk the 7-8m from room to beach each day). Place was great outside of room proximity to beach, good food, very friendly staff, great entertainment (shows), huge open concept but very well contained within confines. Nice restaurants with good food. Beach was huge, water was clear. Very nice place. Doesn't have the intimate feel of a smaller all-inclusive, which was different for us, but we actually ended up liking that aspect (you may not meet/see the same people each day, which is not a bad thing). And the hotel is a $7 cab ride from the city's market which has both local and regional shopping, a good way to spend an afternoon. Hotel was very nice though, would not hesitate to give it a try.
