Amazing place

It's a 5 star place for sure loved the food and my experience at the resort you will not be disappointed, the only thing is if you are a beach person there is sea weed in the water and on the shore line which they try to clean in the morning when I was taking my walk, but if your a pool person like me it will be a great experience for you.

Beach problems

For the most part we really enjoyed our stay. The food was amazing and the liquor was top notch. We were only disappointed in two things. The room was noisy. We could hear everything going on in the connecting room and out in the hallway area. The other disappointing Thing was the seaweed and clarity of the water at the beach. I completely understand that this is out of the control of the hotel but felt they could have done a better job keeping the seaweed off the beach area.

What's to Love

All-inclusive, off-the-charts luxury from the moment you arrive at this stunning resort.

Lounging poolside with gorgeous views, cocktails, and ocean breezes. Ultimate chillaxation.

Upgrading to the Family Concierge suite with personalized service & extra perks.

The rooms - they'll "wow" you. Marble, brand name appliances, comfy beds & a spacious balcony.

Fuego, a favorite Foodie spot - it's got a variety of sushi & it's perfect for your adult-only date night.

 

What We'd Change

This is the family-friendly side of the resort, but it's just a short walk to adults-only side of the resort if you want to hang with those beach loving folks.

 

Why You Should Go

It's ideal for the fam - it has a kids' pool with a pirate ship, activities for the kids and kid-friendly menus.

Free activities abound like SUP and kayaks, plus cocktail classes, wine tastings, sushi making and more.

The spa & fitness center is loaded - stress-busting treatments, exercise classes and plunge pools.
