Disliked: Amenities
The resort maintains a tropical experience and is one of the more attractive resorts close to downtown. Apart from the resort being beautiful, clean, and well maintained, it is definitely over-rated at anything above a 3.5. - Food options are limited. There is only one dinner restaurant on the inclusive plan. The menu is buffet, and the quality of food is ok.
