First Family Getaway

The staff were wonderful, friendly, and professional. We had a great time, and will come back here again. The shows were wonderful, and entertaining. The beach and the pools were clean. The food was excellent, many choices to choose from.

Beautiful resort

The resort is really fantastic. Its really like small town so be ready for lots of walking and using wagon bus. The beach is pretty also swimming pools are very nice and clean. You have plenty of options as far as food choices and there is always stg open. We also like the service people are friendly and response to every request. But be ready that not everybody speaks english what creates sometimes problems. Overall the resort offers lots to do and definitely is what they advertise and for my family was more than we expected.

Make a reservation for kayaking, windsurfing or tennis early morning like after breakfast because later during the day all times are already taken.

The place was great and the staff was friendly. The food in the buffet is my only complaint since there is no variety at all.

Great Resort!!

The staff at this resort were extremely friendly! The beach had white sand and clear blue water! The food was good overall, but I would suggest brining some American food to snack on while at the beach. The pool bar was amazing, but it closes at 6:00 p.m., which is kind of early. The overall scenery at the resort was beautiful and transportation was relatively quick for the amount of people. We were immediately upgraded for free to Ambar when we arrived, which is an adults only section. I would definitely reccomend this section if you are not taking children! Overall, we had a great experience and would visit this resort in the future!
