The place was great and the staff was friendly. The food in the buffet is my only complaint since there is no variety at all.

Great Resort!!

The staff at this resort were extremely friendly! The beach had white sand and clear blue water! The food was good overall, but I would suggest brining some American food to snack on while at the beach. The pool bar was amazing, but it closes at 6:00 p.m., which is kind of early. The overall scenery at the resort was beautiful and transportation was relatively quick for the amount of people. We were immediately upgraded for free to Ambar when we arrived, which is an adults only section. I would definitely reccomend this section if you are not taking children! Overall, we had a great experience and would visit this resort in the future!

Great Family Vacation for the Money But Service Was Disappointing

My kids and I vacationed at this resort. This is a huge resort because it's a combination of 4 separate hotels with common areas with trams transporting guests between the buildings but no matter where you are you're only ten minutes from the beach or the main building. There were a lot of options for meals but breakfast is only served in the main building so if you want to hit the beach or pool early for the day there's no breakfast until they serve "snacks" around 10:30 - not even coffee BUT the bar is open! The beach is gorgeous but i expected more in terms of service there was next to done - at the beach and the pool there wasn't anyone to help you find chairs or bring you drinks. The rooms were nice enough - i asked for an upgrade when i checked and they gladly obliged by moving us to a building closer to the beach. Make your dinner reservations as soon as you check in because they're hard to get. The Japanese and Italian restaurants were very good. The buffet was huge and had lots of variety but a lot of the hot meals were served cold and the service was lacking - the servers in all areas just seem disinterested. You won't get a frozen drink - they serve you piña coladas and daiquiries but they're just liquid with alcohol in them. Even if you tip well the bartenders don't pay much attention to you if there's a line. For the money it was a great value but the service was disappointing. All in all I i would go back for the price but now i know what to expect.

Shopping tip: In Hotel

there are vendors walking up and down the beach constantly selling everything from parasailing to jewelry, sunglasses, braids, etc. DO NOT engage unless you intend to buy because they will not leave your side until you buy and if you do decide to buy haggle with them because they will come down in price.

Great Getaway

The facility was extremely clean, and we felt very safe. Overall, the staff were very nice and polite, but some were a little pushy about tips. The food at the restaurants were great, but make your reservations as soon as you arrive.

Girl trip 2014

On arrival check in went well, the staff can speak English which is a plus. You have to purchase use of a safe, I didn't like that. Our room was big and the bathroom is roomy. The premiere area had a buffet, pool with pool bar, lobby and bar. Overall pretty good. it didn't matter that it was the farthest from the beach as there are bus stops and trams regularly. You have to use the trams to get around, the place is huge! Plenty to do and you'll never be thirsty and hungry! The beach is amazing and the big pools in the front of the beach were great, big, clean and fun! They were overbooked when we went so all the alacart restaurants were booked and we only did the buffets which we decent! But we were getting bored with them after a week. We were there the 1st week 3/2014 and the weather was great... 81*-84*. The water is warm and the waves are just perfect! It's a girl trip I do every year with the same girls and we all loved it!
