Everything was great !

It’s still having some work done but overall really nice

This resort was everything I expected and more. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was a walk away from restaurants and bars. Definitely would recommend to anyone! Specially if you are LGBTQ friendly. Cannot wait to go back.

Great resort, still undergoing construction. The drinks were incredibly expensive.

This was our second stay here. Doubt we will go back for the price. Treadmills were not useable in the gym. Had to ask for glasses for the room multiple times. Was asked to go to a tour for membership multiple times. The whole place is under construction so I was woken up at 8 am every day and my view seas of a construction crew and a mud pit.

Room view was great, no pool as advertised! At first arrived there was a Hugh sales pitch, felt like I was trying to get a time share. Room was delayed, so check in was long. Location was inconvenient, long walk down and for the older generation a cab was necessary for the return. After construction is done and accessible to beach, might be a place worth staying.

Hotel was good overall. Most staff were great and attentive. No hot water whatsoever in the room. When I notified management they sent someone to “verify”. What bothered me even more than the lack of hot water was that management wasn’t honest about it and kept giving me the runaround with b******t. I later found out it was a known issue and other guests had the same issue and same reaction. If hot water is a deal breaker I would suggest to book elsewhere. Management should be ready for this concern and at least act like they care.

Incredible property! Extraordinary Staff! Service was top notch from the moment we checked into the resort until the moment we left. Highly recommend. Looking forward to our next stay.

Very clean and modern. There was a lot of construction happening so not the most peaceful. Staff was a bit rude when bringing guests over. Food was good but not anything to rave about. Cannot beat the location.

Great for beach and pool. Here is what I did not like:1. Upon entering the lobby it’s a sauna. It was so hot. And then it took forever to check in. So much paperwork. 2. After you are brought to someone to “explain “ property. However they want to set up appt to tell you more and hopefully timeshare. They tried again next day to try another appt. 3. In room coffee was gross . 4. At the beach each day I was approached by solicitors every 3-4 minute. I’m there to relax not to be sold to. They were selling, hard, jewelry, Shaw’s, paintings, massages, pot, pipes, Coke the drug, wood work, sunglasses, purses, dresses,. You name it they were out selling. Why the resort allows this I have no clue. The bartenders and waiters were super nice at the beach club as well as the roof top. I wish the had a better selection of food. The food I ate was good just not a good variety to chose from.

Staff are very friendly but service is horrible. Second time staying here. The check in process both times is longer than any hotel I have ever stayed at. You just come off an airplane and want to get to your room but they want to delay you selling memberships etc. bar service at the pool is a disaster. No one at the bar and they take forever to respond to you and to make your drinks. If you have a cabana wristband they will flat out ignore you even though your cabana server tells you to go to the bar while you are in the pool. The service by far is the worst part of this hotel. Outside of that the hotel is beautiful and well maintained and the staff are all extremely nice and helpful. Just everything is slow

It’s great location, nice beach property with things to do and relax. Also all the new updates coming, it’s fantastic place to relax, get a way from everything and enjoy your time. Staff was nice, good English and you get all things you want. Plus you can’t beat the amazing prices.
