            Service & staff were very efficient cordial & welcoming. Especially Mr Rubio.

            The beach & actually the fact that when we arrived at the hotel they had NO record of our having booked through your agency!

            The Beach is very poor and the Beach upkeep is very poor.

            Very nice hotel. I never eat that good in an all inclusive resort. The food in the seafood restaurant was excellent. I spent the new year eve there it was amazing, we had a four course dinner with a show and than another show and than a dancing party on the beach with fire works. I never saw the buffets closed, you can eat and drink at any time you want.

            The resort is very big, you have to walk a lot or wait for the cars to take you. I was there on Dec 31 and Jan 1st, the weather was a little bit windy speacialy on the beach, it was still nice to stay on the beach but not to swim.

            The service was really really good kind and caring staff, the hotel is very beautiful and calm, good food, quiet and beautiful beach especially in the part of the VIP. The hotel's facilities are good. Overall a quiet vacation luxurious dream

            The hotel is very large, beautiful and fun to walk the trails, but sometimes it's a bit disturbing especially when you need a little something like an Internet connection for a moment, I would recommend the hotel to increase the frequency of the golf car transport and install WI-FI in the rooms for the convenience of guests. Beyond that I did not like the experience of salespeople I sell hotel vacation packages. The way this was done was not reliable. the food in the extra 5 specific resturants us less good then the buffet

            The resort was fairly nice and affordably priced.

            The food was mediocre and sometimes plain bad. The drinks were not good. Apparently there's a gold VIP wristband you can buy that gets you better drinks, but I wasn't aware of that prior to arrival. The customer service was ok and they often forgot things. Booking dinner reservations was annoying as you couldn't do it until the day prior and they fill up quickly.
