Great in all respects. Food was average, except for the pizza, wow! The outside buffet had excellent steak. Pool and staff are wonderful. Very nice place to spend a week to ten days of relaxation.

Wish there were negative stars

We are never returning to this resort. To include all of the details that support a poor review would result in a doctoral thesis, so I will share the main points: We waited at least a half hour to be assisted at check in. Once we started, because of a sales pitch that is required, it took at least an hour to actually get checked in. We, like most guests, just wanted to get to our room and settle for a few minutes after a long trip. The first night we went to have dinner, and were seated, and then told about 20 minutes later that the restaurant did not open until 6 pm, and that is why no one had approached us for orders of any kind. We could have gone for a walk with our kids, who understandably were becoming restless after almost 30 minutes and no dinner service in sight. Then we were introduced to the signing system… even though we were all inclusive, we still had to sign for all food and drink. Not knowing this, we left when we finished with dinner and a staff member was shouting at me to come back because I had not signed the “check”. They tried several times to push their 1.5-hour (but really 3-4 hours as reported by those who did it) time-share presentations. There was no kids’ menu. There was no beer my husband liked and he asked if it could be ordered, so he could purchase it at the store on sight and was told rudely and in no uncertain terms that it was a ridiculous request. There were numerous people, including us, who had fraudulent charges on the bill at check out, and had to fight to correct the bill before paying. They charged my credit card over $500 US dollars on the day of check in!! There was rarely butter with bread at breakfast, we always had to ask for our “check” and service was so poor there are not words for it. Lastly, in case we thought we would get a good night sleep, we apparently were near the kitchen, as there was loud banging and clattering of trays, etc. ALL NIGHT long. No sleep, either, I am sad to say. I actually returned to internet reviews to see where I had gone so terribly wrong, and the reviews were good before September 2013, when I booked. Soon after though, they started to decline. Again, we cannot recommend this resort nor will we return.

Bring lots of money!!!!

Beautiful resort, pool, beach all very nice. The problem is that this resort advertises as an 'All Inclusive' resort, but it is not!!! You think you have booked and all inclusive care free vacation, but when you arrive and check in, they charge you anywhere from $89 - over $200 per day, per person for the 'all inclusive' package. This is supposed to include gratuities, but you won't get good service unless you tip the waiters with cash, plus they try to charge you with a 'gratuity fee' of about 46 pesos per day on check out. We had an ok time but we will never go here again or any resort affiliated. Its all about time shares. They also don't guarantee the quality of the hotel water, but don't provide you with bottled water in your room. If you want bottled water you have to pay a room service charge of %15 and a delivery fee!!! Like I say if you want to stay here bring bags of money or lotsa room on your credit card!!

Very Exspensive TIME SHARE Hotel

Service was BAD , you could wait half and hr. for a drink. If you wanted a meal an hr. Meals was very expensive Soon as people knew you didn't buy a time share, they didn't want to talk to you any more. It was the worst holiday of my life. Don't go there. They basically call you and ide it, if you don't buy a time share. 90 minute turns into 4 hrs. of bagging us to buy. You have to go to the time share meeting or they keep bugging you.Bad bad holiday

I've been there several times...

So I obviously like the place. The location is fine for me and the hotel has increased the activities offered over the years. The accommodations are good and the staff is quite agreeable to moving you if your room doesn't suit you. The gentleman that assists with the internet is the Best! The food is good, I avoid the buffet as it encourages me to eat too much. I prefer to order off the menu. The waiters are great and Edgar was particularly helpful. Unfortunately I don't know the names of the gentlemen on the beach but they were wonderful getting my chair and umbrella. The waiters on the beach were good also. I love the beach. The negatives are few. I know some dislike the beach vendors but I like them very much and enjoy talking with them and practicing my Spanish. The real estate sales people are very persistent and I know it says the pitch will take about 90 minutes but it's more like three hours. It's very difficult to get away from them. The offers do change over the years so I am interested in hearing them, but I may have to re think that. I get irritable by hour three. Another problem is the tipping. Over the years it has really gotten out of control!!! I don't mind tipping at all and you are expected to tip the waiters of course, then they add a daily tip. I went to the spa and tipped everyone and then found out that they had also charged me a service charge. Tips are for good service not to supplement the hotels payroll. Wait staff usually have low pay and tips help. Other staff should be paid a living wage. I feel the hotel is evading their responsibilities by expecting the guests to help with wages to this extent. For the first time I am considering going elsewhere.

Lovely location

This location can't be beat. Away from the hustle and bustle forces you to relax and unwind. Fun activities and shows every day. Food is decent, though pricey. We were led us to believe this will all inclusive but then it wasn't. Check details before buying.

Regular, nice hotel. But will not stay again

This hotel is really a "time share" concept and you can tell as soon as you check in. It is very annoying to see the employees just trying to push the sales of the time share and wont let go. In the morning all you see is the "tours" going around you and takes away from the vacation atmosphere. The food options are limited and the all inclusive price is very expensive. The entertainment is lousy. Have stayed in so many hotels/resorts and will NOT be coming back to this one for sure. Unless you are interested in a time share I will not recommend you staying here.
