    The staff is amazing and the food was great as well.

    Do not like how king size beds are put together with 2 twin beds.

    The large room, extra large bed, the fabulous beach, excellent staff, all inclusive meals/drinks. Food was good, we went to buffet and to all 4 restaurants, all were good.

    Our room was as far away from everything as it could get. But, maybe that is for the good, as we had to walk off some of that food and drink. Not a hotel problem as the beach is public, but there are too many people selling things on the beach.
