Just okay. Wouldn’t stay again. The lobby ‘open air’ concept isn’t great, hard to find ac anywhere as lobby, coffee/liquor bar, waiting area is all outside. SOME restaurants have ac, but not all. Only ac you have really is the rooms. Was super humid & hot constantly, just uncomfortable. Pretty hotel, great staff, decent food, very family friendly (tons of kids. Def opting for an Adults Only resort next year). Safe area. Across from Starbucks, shopping area, and pharmacy. Nice for the money, wouldn’t say it’s 5 stars. Ocean was free of seaweed, but was rocky trying to get in and out. Activities we’re plentiful. Laida was amazing. Give that girl a raise! Would give it 3/5 stars. Nice vaca but could’ve been better had we stayed somewhere else.
