My Husband and I stayed there for a week. The food was good and the closeness to the beach was amazing. The entertainers were super good. Black coffee, minnie me, superman they really can really throw down a show . They are amazing and make you feel good.

We LOVED the pools--very large and easy to access, with swim-up bars and plenty of lounge chairs. We appreciated the attentiveness of bar tenders when they weren't busy and understood that there were times when they were too busy for attentiveness. The quarters were immaculate, with decent showers, reading lights, and beds. However we were disappointed in the food and... More

Fair to say our room was a 3 with minor issues. Location was ok in relation to the beach and pool. Our beachfront was by far the worst of all resorts, if you walked 200 ft you could enjoy other beachfront resorts on either side. The restaurants were absolutely 5 star, particularly the Japanese, Steakhouse, The French as well. Our... More

We choose this all inclusive because it claimed to have 8 restaurants and internal transport trolleys. ... yes they lived up to their claims but we found only half of the eateries open on any given day with the remaining on "recess". For the most part transportation was consistent and dependable. But we did have to wait close to 45... More
