1/5 Terrible

Traveled with partner
Disliked: Amenities
We paid additional cost for the so-called “All Inclusive”, after speaking to frontier desk for clarification she practically boasted about all the great food and restaurants the property had to offer. Upon arrival then find out they only had one buffet style restaurant which basically provided same thing everyday. I was lied and grossly overcharged for this property and would not recommend this place to anyone. It’s sad that Marriott would put their name on this property, which I am very disgusted with the brand and would not vacation on any of their properties no time in the future. It’s not good that I paid for a all inclusive vacation and had to taxi to local restaurants to get a decent food for lunch and dinner.
