This was by far the nicest vacation that we have ever taken. The staff was incredibly accomodating, the rooms were impeccable, the food was fabulous and the drinks were flowing and wonderful! The grounds were also spotless and clean. We can't wait to go back!

Wonderful hotel

My wife and I visited this resort for a week. It was extremely relaxing. There were no kids, plenty of pools and bars and restaurants to choose from. Each day and night there were plenty of free activities to do, but we mostly laid around pool and ocean side enjoying the drinks and weather. There are a ton of cabanas that offer shade, both for the pool and the ocean which is nice for ppl like us with fair skin. The staff was incredibly friendly and the food was excellent, some of the best seafood I've ever had. I was amazed at the scale of this resort, even at full occupancy it would not feel crowded at all. And the romance package is worth every penny. I highly recommend this resort to all couples.

Amazing location

My wife and I enjoyed 4 nights at this location. They greet you with a cold towel to cool your face off...the staff is friendly and efficient. Don't worry about a language barrier, most of the staff speaks decent English. The rooms are amazing, the resort is beautiful. This is a wondrous place. This place is designed for re-energizing so if you are into the party scene... stay away, they don't want you... nor do the people who visit the location.

Tipping is allowed and encouraged from the waitstaff. Leave two bucks, and you are a hero. Breakfast is served from the buffet and the lobster house. Personally I found the buffet a bit lacking, however the lobster house was very tasty and had some amazing options.
