We love it here! Food is delicious, especially the sushi by the pool. So excited to eat sushi the other day. Breakfast buffet was great. Service is fantastic- everyone is super friendly. Lots of great entertainment! They have three pools, all brought their own different fun aspects. We can’t wait to come back with friends and family.

My family stayed at this resort do four nights and five days. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was good but not outstanding. Be careful when ordering because you will find not everything is included in the all inclusive. I got stuck for a $170 bottle of wine. Wish the waiter would have told me it was not included. I also booked transportation from the airport to the hotel and paid for four people. My wife and children arrived a day earlier than me but when I arrived the next day the transportation company said I only had paid for three and charged me again. The hotel assured me that they would credit me for the extra charge but never did. Now I come to the heart of my review. Do not sign up for the presentation that offers you discounted scenic tours. They say it will only be 90 minutes but it will actually go on for three hours. At the end when I chose not to buy the salesperson asked me “then why are you here?” I told him he was being very rude and as I got up to leave he said”just remember you are in a foreign country” which I took as a serious threat. As we walked away one of my kids heard them say “we have their room number” which I took to mean another threat. Didn’t feel comfortable after that. I will never go back
