Everyone gets the 4th floor when they check in even though you paid for a Superior Garden View w. balcony. Response is "We are completely full", so that's my fault? I have never been so angry as I emailed them 6 wks. before we travelled there and told them I did not want the 4th floor as it is a...

We just got back from this hotel. The first thing I noticed while reading the reviews, is that we seemed to have paid more for the safe than the others. We were charged $28.00 US for the week while others were paying 15.00 or 18.00. We had a 4th floor room, not very convenient at all, you have to climb...

We stayed from Feb 2-9th 2017. We got to the resort around midnight and had a very quick and easy trip from the airport to the resort and check-in was just a quick.

Clean rooms, good food, excellent beach with loads of loungers. A great place to relax. Within walking distance of a mall. The weather was just amazing. We were pleasantly surprised with the entire experience.

First impressions when I entered the resort was that it was underwhelming. The facility is dated/old. After ten days I'm glad that I didn't let those first few moments leave a bad taste in my mouth. My family had a wonderful vacation. Top elements: 1- the buffet is five star quality. The food and service is excellent. 2- the beach...

We stayed for nearly 2 weeks, and it was like a home-away-from-home. Not only was the rooms (we were upgraded to a suite) extremely clean and tidy, but the service was almost always impeccable. We did have a few little hiccups, but nothing that we couldn't handle. PROS: Clean rooms (Lots of water in the fridge each day) Great service...
