1/5

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

Bad services, dirty rooms and employees regardless of customer service

Stayed 2 nights in Nov 2018

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities

For an all inclusive it was pricy and small. Food selection was very limited. There was always something that didn't work - door, safe, air conditioning, wifi etc etc. Staff was a mix of lovely friendly and helpful people and people who hated their jobs or us (but miserable with something). No surfing out front, beach just okay but Playa Samara was consistent and easy to get to everyday.

Stayed 14 nights in Mar 2019

      Property is under construction so can be noisy. Food and facilities ok but nothing to write home about. If you like AI, I’m sure this is average.
