  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I liked that the food and drinks were endless. I didn’t like the rooms that much. One of the main lights in the bathroom didn’t work on the first day and I told the maid and the front desk, they didn’t do anything about it and we were there for 7 days.

been there before and enjoyed it, but in the Toucan dining very disappointing, I don't know why the menu changed, was so looking for the Delicious ceviche and the potato salad....and the fact you have to line up instead of making reservations....like in the past.
