Can't believe the people who bash this place on here... You guys really have nothing better to do but complain about little things. A vacation is what you make of it. The staff here was beyond friendly ! It's got to work both ways though, you can't expect great service when you walk up to the bar demanding drinks, and...

We found blood in the bed when we arrived. When we pointed this out the service person called us liars and swore at us. rooms were not cleaned until after 4pm no hot water, very small buffet restraunt (unlike other places I've gone) and couldn't get into other restraunts offered until after 9pm. Also, a lot of construction at hotel...

Well, where do I start. The food was good, the grounds are beautiful, the weather was great and the ocean was warm. That is the reason I give this place a one star. Problem is that all along the ocean there is seaweed I recommend water shoes. It sticks to your feet. The seaweed is not growing, just gets moved...

For what we payed we had a good time. Get an superior room or junior suite as they are renovated. There is still work on site but it didn't bother us too much. The a la carte restaurants were a disappointment. Pikalo has great pizza and the 2 buffets are good also. Ice is SAFE to drink since it's pre...

THE GOOD.. Beach, lots of lounge chairs. THE OK.. Food, most staff friendly, drinks and not many long waits THE BAD... If you get one of the older buildings then not even a rating . The old buildings with French Balconies should be condemned they are not suited for humans. They are moldy, and nothing works well it took us...

When it rained it came in through the bathroom light and took three days to get repaired. The beach was a mile away although a buggy took...

I'm not sure what is with all the bad reviews. My boyfriend and I just got back yesterday from a weeks stay at IFA and we quite enjoyed it. First of all, the resort is huge. We stayed in the 1200 block which was the farthest distance from the beach, however there are buggies that run frequently that will take...

This resort was ok. My husband and I stayed for a week in January. If you're looking for a fancy, upscale hotel, this is not it, however the beach is beautiful, the food is good and the hotel is clean. I would recommend that you pay a little extra for a "superior" room - these rooms have just been renovated...
