We got back 12/23/2013 and I have to say overall I was disappointed. CONS: The food was mediocre at best. I had to ask twice for alcohol to be poured in my drinks at the pool bar...if I could get one. Also the quality of the alcohol was awful. The last night we were there the power went out in...

I read many reviews before booking our trip and checked reviews in the weeks preceding our vacation to become familiar with the resort, and found them extremely helpful. We left from Philadelphia airport on 12/20/2013 on a very cold morning. Our flight was easy (Although it seemed to take forever! ) and we were eager to start our much needed...

I attended this rewort with my wife for a friends wedding. The resort is not exclusively adults, but the majority of visitors are indeed adults. There is the standard game of inability to book the restuarants, however once in the restuarant they are emply and the food is the same as the buffet 90% of the time. The pool scene...
