El hotel es hermoso pero deberian modernizar los cuartos y los equipos de las cocinas

The beach was not good it had lots of rocks. But the rest of the experience was awesome!

Absolutely loved the shows!!!! Very professional artists with unbelievable talent

Everything was onsite! Entertainment, bars, casino! It has everything plus more.

I loved everything!!!! Especially the bartender Diego at the swim up bar he was amazing!!! The staff were very friendly and helpful!

Nice hotel restaurants Entreteiment perfect Everythink deliciosa comida

Everyone was pleasant and helpful. The only issue we had was our room was out of electricity as we had an electrical short. So the power kept going off and on. It was fixed later that day.

The property was very nice. I love the art on the ceiling. The place was very clean and smelled very nice.

Poor and lobby areas were nice. Monkeys in the trees. The themed entertainment each night was fun especially neon night!

This was my third year coming to the property, worst year for food.

Half the restaurants were closed each night during the week. No reservations either. Extremely misleading and false advertising to say there are 6 eating options each night when there isn't.

Food wasn't good, the bathroom has a bad odor came from the drain, bed was very hard, pillows were tiny and lumpy, no service, they put rotten mints in my mojito, when I told them the guy gave me an attitude. The entertainment was right under the guests room. I can't rest until they finished their shows each night. I would not recommend it to anyone.
