It was all inclusive but the food in dining hall was repetitive. They'd serve dinner leftovers as part of lunch. Waitstaff were awesome. Staff was too hungry for tips. Its not a tip if everyone just expects you to give them money just for asking them a question or getting a shuttle ride. The bathroom tub at our original room was falling apart. Grout missing with hole. We requested a different room but it was worst. The shower leaked everywhere and we had to get extra towels everyday to soak up water leakage. Room was a soaking mess. It needs a lot of work. Entrance looks old. The shower handle came off because its so old. They fixed it promptly but the patch up job was terrible and the water was shooting out the handle when you turn the shower on. They need to maintain the appearance of the buildings and rooms. Its old and falling apart. The general bathroom at the pool was disgusting and falling apart. It needs to be repaired and updated. Its shameful. Our housekeeper was amazing. Overall, a good resort if these issues were resolved.

Pool area is good, its a big hotel so it seems not to crowded. Mini-shuttles service is not to good so be prepared to walk. Service is ok, staff is nicer with people who don't speak spanish (sad). There is anlot of seeweed at the beach(i know no the hotel's fault). Overall a good expierence but there are better hotels on the area.

Please be advised this is not a 5 star hotel, a 3 at the most. I give the staff an A for their effort and service, everyone is friendly and helpful. Restaurants: there are only 2 buffets, they are on opposite sides, one by the beach and the other by the lobby. It is a very long walk between the two, taking a golf cart is the best option unless you like walking. The food was ok, nothing special, at times there were not too many options to choose from especially for those with dietary restrictions. The waiters provided great service, within a few minutes of sitting at the table, a waiter would always come to take beverage orders. The room: our room was cleaned every day, we always had fresh towels. The room is dated and smelled moldy, the bathroom had a sewer smell every time the toilet was flushed and water was running. The pool: looks incredibly old and dirty The beach: small dirty beach with white sand and lots of seaweed Lounge chairs: there were not enough chairs by the poolside or beach, people had to lay on their towels on the sand. The hotel just hasn’t been taken care of, it has a concrete kind of floor throughout that makes it look old and dirty, huge leaks in the lobby. The walking distance is very far, they have golf carts which you can call and request for a ride. Poolside entertainment and night shows were ok. There were animals that were lurking in front of the buffet and constantly went inside to steal food, and licked the reusable plastic cups.

Food is great. Property is great. Wish the rooms were larger. Having the rooms far from the main buffet restaurant sure is a pain. Be prepared to walk 15 minutes there and back for each meal. They say they have golf cart shuttle service with pickup points, but they only take people with luggage to their rooms for checkin or checkout, so there is never room to get a ride.
