best purchase with in our budget

went on our first vacation with my boyfriend. they had great Staff was very friendly,, pool was great food awesome. the only thing I personally did not like about it was that there was this one lady staff that kept hitting on my boyfriend and even though I was there I told her off and she seemed to understand. Our last day there we saw her by the bar and she was making conversation to my man again and even gave out her number. spoke with staff and hope she got fire lol!! otherwise it was fun!!

Great value!

We arrived at the resort for a 6 day "girls" vacation. Had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this resort. Food was great!

Meh. Not so good...

The facilities and accommodations are lacking and showing signs of age and wear. My room was musty and made me sick. It had water stains on the walls. The air conditioning was so loud that I couldn't hear the tv, and I am quite sure it was blowing moldy, musty air in to my room. The ceiling fan was caked with dust and grime, and the lightbulb was exposed (no globe to cover the bulb). The latch (lock) on the sliding glass door was broken. The bathroom ceiling was leaking water from above. There was not always hot water in the shower, and the water pressure was very low. I requested a new room (twice) and when I was finally moved, the new room's air conditioning didn't work. It was a nightmare, and nobody on staff seems to have a sense of urgency to either make repairs or make the situation right. The outdoor amenities during the day were fine --- not high end by any stretch, but OK. The Yin/Yang Spa was a very nice experience, though they messed up our appointment accommodations. There was no night life at the resort --- no music, just one small pool bar that was open in the evening, and on a couple of nights, vendors set up their tables of local crafts. I was expecting a more festive experience ---- music, dancing, activities, night time swimming... but there was nothing. The specialty restaurants were very good for evening dining (seafood, Mexican, Indian, Brazilian), and worth trying a different one every night. The daily dining, which is large buffet style, open-air, was mediocre at best, with birds landing on your table and flies all over the place. It just felt unsanitary. I did not get the value for the money that I paid, and it was frustrating and disappointing. Definitely not a relaxing experience. I will not return.
