Great stay here made better by the great staff especially all the bar staff who are attentive and chirpy all through the day. The restaurant staff JianCarlo, Marvin, Joseph, Rodolfo and the ever smiling and busy Fiorella are a great team.

The resort was beautiful. Great staff comfortable rooms and beds. Food delish and all inclusive is the way to go. Had a semi family emergency and Edwardo at the front desk was amazingly accommodating compassionate and understanding of the situation. He made what could have been a bad outcome better. Thank you.
