This resort makes you feel like you are in a tropical dream. It is so beautiful and spacious with so many things to do and explore. My kids enjoyed "scouting out" the different points of interest on the property and earned their commemorative band in doing so! The hotel's private island is so picturesque and comfortable. Be sure to visit...

I stayed here for a mini vacation and it was amazing. My kids didn't want to leave the waterpark. The waterpark is not just for kids, you're going to have fun there too. If you just want to relax, go to Palomino. The service is great and everything is at walking distance.

I have visited the resort several times. We like it for the location and amenities. What I have noticed in the last couple of times is that the structure is in desperate need of paint touch ups everywhere, rust removal and landscape manicure. The staff is friendly overall, but needs tweaks here and there. I recommend it for families who...

I travelled with my two children and my parents in March for Spring Break. There was an excellent kids eat free with paying adults program, that truly was terrific.

The sheer size of the property is impressive, but THE VIEWS is what is all about. Dramatic views of the east coast of PR overlooking many islands on the Caribbean Sea. On a clear day you can see STT. Complimentary ferry service to private island makes for a perfect day at the beach. Majestic golf course.
