    Beds were comfortable. Food was great, especially in the resteraunts. Super clean and friendly staff. A lot to do, we didn't leave the resort as we kept discovering something new.

    Coffee. But after 4:00 the coffee and cigar lounge opens and that coffee was spelendid. Just wish it was open for breakfast.

    Eh

    The resort is beautiful. The design and the landscape is excellent. I had a great time meeting new people while there. The service is really good, because the staff is wonderful and professional. I liked that there is a train that takes you from place to place. If you're an adult, you will spend most of your time in the Strikers Bar or Casino or one of the pools. The drinks were really really good.

    I hated the towel service (you have to bring your own towels to the pool in order to switch them out). There's a huge distance between everything (hence the train). Waiting on the train can be timely, so you may have to walk a lot to get to places. The disco tech has a bad DJ, but we made it fun. I didn't like paying for wifi. The food wasn't all that great. I hated that the only swim up bar was on the side wasn't on the adult only side, so that means you will see kids peeing in the fountain or walking around without diapers, even though they are not supposed to do either. I also didn't like that there's no food service by the pool. The tv didn't work in our room, and we had the repairman come by twice. There are so many mosquitos and flies.

    Family Friendly All Inclusive Fun

    The pools were amazing! Beautiful and very clean. The beach view was beautiful. Rooms were nice and cleaning service was good. Lots of fun activities for all members of the family.

    Food was very hit or miss. The only thing that was mediocre on this trip.

    The Spa was great!!! My husband and I purchased a couples massage and it was awesome.

    It would have been nice to have been able to get food at the pool bars rather than having to go to the main buildings where all of the restaurants, inlcluding the 24 hour snack bar was located. We were a decent walk away from these and it was annoying to have to go so far for just a snack. At times, some of the bar staff was rather snooty too.

    If I have only one critic it will be for the casino staff,only place in the resort where for some reason the staff absolutely not friendly,
