beautiful resort, excellent service especially for an all-inclusive. The staff was great, especially Annie in guest services and Oscar at reception. My wife had health issues that put her in the hospital. They bent over backwards to insure we were taken care of. We are considering this for our next family vacation we liked it so much.
