Not a good choice

The rooms and the location is nice but the food is terrible., the restaurants are terrible and the atmosphere is suitable for college kids. It felt like we were roughing it out there. There is no easy access to the beach and there is no oceanview either.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Take the city bus. It's only $1 per person each way and it drop you off in down town. We took the taxi $14 each way the first time and it was a wast of money. The city bus will do. The food was excellent. You have peking duck, filet mignon, salmon,sashimi and many more delicious items. It's endless!!

Girls trip

The staff is very nice. Entertainment is average. Pools are great, the pools closer to the lobby more relaxing and great swim up bar. The pool closer to the beach or as we and most called it the "spring break pool" that pretty much sums it up for that pool. The beach was great volleyball nets lots of chairs, need more umbrella. The only problem there is the people selling stuff, it's roped off but still very close to where you sit. And the sellers are between you and getting to the ocean. Not good. Food was good, it's buffets pretty much the same thing everyday.

Don't know if I would return ....

There are pro & cons for the hotel. Cons are limited wifi (only 90 mins per day and only in the lobby) & maybe purchased for a fee. The food was always a hit & miss... Breakfast had a large variety but speciality restaurant (Asian) was awful. Expired drinks were in the room frig. Pros are the pool activities were fun. Variety of pools to choose from, house keeping was good and resort had nightly entertainment. Overall, don't know if I would return.

Great Time

I spent a week at this hotel with my boyfriend and 2 other couples. it's a huge resort so be prepared to do lots of walking. some pools are a little dirty while others are cleaner... this hotel seems more for a younger demographic so I suggest families choose another hotel. there are different pools though that fit for families and another that's for the drinking crowd . there are no elevators which was a big thumbs down for me because we we're put I the last floor so having to walk up and down 5 flights of stairs wasn't fun. overall this hotel was a nice hotel lots of bars and entertainment and the food was very good too.

Ok, but there are better choices

While the rooms are very nice and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating, we were more disappointed than excited by our stay. This property is HUGE! It does have several pools, but it is a pretty far walk from the first few buildings to even see the beach. We had exercise because of it, but it was a huge hassle, too. We were disappointed in the food (mostly buffet style). Even in the restaurants, we weren't impressed. Likewise, the drinks weren't great. Luckily it was all inclusive, because there were several drinks I just couldn't take 2 sips of. Finally, this property is about a mile from where you can really swim in the water and get to activities such as the glass bottom boats. The lady selling the tours assured us that it was a 15 minute walk. That was very ambitious. It took us closer to 40-45 minutes along the beach. And it was $15 each way to take a taxi into town, which really added up quickly for us. On the plus side, we spent a good bit of time in the infinity pools with the swim up bars (we called it the drunk pool) and had an absolute blast. We met great people and the staff were terrific.
