The only thing that I didn’t like was the food, a-la carte restaurants were so simple with just slight difference from buffet food. But the territory of the hotel was beautiful with iguanas, monkey, kiotes ( i am not sure if i spelled correctly)

The princess family club is amazing for families with children. Everything is well thought out with things like stepping stools for children to wash their hands, mini robes, mini slippers, pirate dolls on their beds, kid shampoo and toys waiting for them, car strollers available to use for kids. The buffet at the family club was great! The food is not super amazing, but it is very good; most importantly it is kid friendly food and they also have a pirate ship they can play on while us parents eat. Alfredo is an amazing waiter, there are not enough words to describe his wonderful service! We are very thankful for Alfredo, he was very patient with our kids and never got mad at them for spilling their drink, he even had balloons for them to play with. The water park is great! Although the kids club was closed because of COVID, they had plenty of outside activities for kids that kept them busy and happy! The beach on the other hand was not pleasant due to the sargassum, but unfortunately there is nothing to be done about that. The kids enjoyed the stay and we all had fun. The hotel staff is very attentive especially on the family club side. On the other hand the check in/out and concierge at the main lobby were very rude and never really wanted to help or answer questions. There was only one concierge and a long line no matter what time of dat you went.

It all started from reception area, no good sign on where to check in, we where in line and ppl just passed through and staff started to checking them in, didn't even say that there is ppl before you. I would not say that i was crazy about the food either. And the most important is English, only few ppl spoke english. We did enjoy the shows, that part was good

Rooms are very nice, they have complementary stuff for kids.. a basket with beach toys, small bag with bathing accessories like a small soap shaped as a duck, candies, juice in the fridge, etc. Food is very good.. tasty. Drinks are ok, better alcohol brands than normal all inclusive Pools are cleaned. areas of improvement... the shuttle takes forever to pick up people. the ocean cannot be seen from the main pool.. are totally separated areas. the water park is not a big thing, a very small area like a regular playground. there is no room service the kids club is very restricted to older kids (4 +) and they have schedules... there is nothing really special about it, looks like a daycare room only. couple of crayons and toys. In general the hotel is nice but, I wouldn't come back for the family club ..since it really doesn't make a huge difference with any other all inclusive resort.

We liked everything. The activities for the kids were fun and the shows were great. I wish the centers for the kids be ages 2 and up since they are only able to care for the kids ages 4 and up without parents being present. Of course those time are schedule but it’s nice cause if mom and dad want to do an activity by them selves they can plan accordant to the center hours. Other way then that it’s a great place for the family to go out and enjoy time together.

I love how accommodating they were to the children!

Great ice cream! Family club was very quiet. Kids loved pirate restaurant.

The swimming pools next to the rooms! Very limited restaurants that don’t need reservations. Beach was very dirty with seaweed!

The lady at the reception desk was not very friendly. When I asked if the restaurant was open she suggested I get room service which was available at an extra cost.

Very big, room not great but pools and service great

The hotel and staff were wonderful. The grounds are beautiful. The food in the restaurants was mediocre. Preferred the buffets.

We had a wonderful time at this resort. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms clean and very nice. Ours was a king bed with bunk beds for the kids. Plenty of space for our family of five. Lots of pools to choose from but our kids loved the kids pool with the slides best. Beach beautiful, very clean in November during our stay. It is a bit rocky though so water shoes are a good idea for little kids. The staff was so nice, helpful, and accomodating. Our only negative feedback would be that the towel stations seemed few and far between (unless we were just missing them) and the fondue restaurant was not very good. I would encourage the reort to pick a different theme for that one. All in all we truly loved this reort!

just for everyone to know where everything is located since it's a huge hotel

We had a fantastic Time! The food was good, the beach and facilities were clean, and the staff was accomadating.
