Stayed for two weeks Jan 24. Deserves a gold star for customer service. All staff were polite, friendly and helpful. As said previously food was very expensive…,nearly 1,000 pesos for two breakfasts. Glad we were “all inclusive”. The menus at the various restaurants offered an interesting and varied selection. Had live entertainment while we were there. It was, by far, the best we have seen in our 18 visits to the southern climes. |What is missing from this resort is a quiet bar area. |All in all this resort should please all age groups and is very family friendly.

Our experience was super! Habib, Magali, Mago, and Joel were so helpful. They were very attentive to our needs. We had a wonderful time here. The food was very tasty, especially the restaurants they suggested. The excursion they helped us get was very fun and worth the money.
