Great affordable Bachelorette

The rooms were mostly clean and the food was great. At the Casablanca buffett all the servers were wonderful, especially Jose and Camilo. They went above and beyond. They always had a table ready for us with a plate of food they knew we liked and amd most likely would have run out by the time we got there. VIP beach is really nice except The bartenders at the VIP beach were very rude. One girl asked us to leave a tip when we werent even leaving. The other bartender at the first bar was extremely slow and ignored me when i asked him for a beer and he said to me "maybe you seeing double with those glasses but im one person". Such a jerk he is. Bothe of these dont need to be working where customer service is key! Too bad i cant remember there name but the 5 days we were there, they were both there. This part of the beach closes at 6 which i think its early. Sushi bar was a nice touch. Wish the snack bar had a more variety of food besides hot dogs and hamburger. Other than that, great time we had.

Great affordable Bachelorette

Excellent Value

Check in went well. Transfers were good. Room was very clean. Our stay was from Sunday to Thursday. Restaurants-buffet was very good. Asian was outstanding. Italian and Seafood were average. Mexican was good but a very very long wait, the taco bar was mostly empty. The food at the VIP beach area was good. Overall, if you are looking for above average food this is not the resort to go to. Rooms-clean. Not enough outlets. Balcony and view were excellent. Air conditioning was a big issue in our room. Our friends in the room next store had perfect air conditioning. Every day we had maintenance at our room. Hours wasted on repairs that did not work or only worked for a few hours, We even slept one full night sleeping, sweating with the patio door open. Finally, on the last day it was fixed. No compensation for our trouble at all. Very disappointed in this. Pool-Below average. No drink service at lounge chairs. Barely any service at swim up bar. Nightly entertainment was like a high school musical. You have to take a shuttle to restaurants and casino. Cheap Caribbean told me that we would have ALL VIP access. I called them and did extensive research on this. DO NOT believe that you have VIP access. You get one VIP beach that is it. However, we were denied access to food and club. Nothing to eat between 3 and 6. So when we returned from an excursion we tried to get a burger at the VIP area of the beach and were turned away. (and not very nicely) Cheap Caribbean totally lied to me regarding the VIP access. The best part of the resort was the vip beach area that we were allowed in to. Small spa pools with lounge beds. Everyday I had to track down a waitress to get a drink. Finally on the last day, someone actually asked me if I needed anything. Raquel was amazing. Only a few steps from the beach. There are no lounge chairs on the beach. Overall, we paid a great price for this trip. So value for the dollar was good. I probably would not go back there though. The air conditioning and VIP issues were a huge negative on our trip.

Lots of Fun Things to Do

My boyfriend and I took a trip to this resort and it was definitely worth going for the price. The staff is very helpful and the resort is beautiful. Pros: * The location is nice (about 30-45 minutes from airport) We had to add transportation to and from. Security at the resort entrances/exits makes it feel comfortable. * Variety of foods and restaurants to choose from (open at reasonable hours) * You can walk to the other resorts in the area and dine in depending on whether or not you include certain VIP options with the trip * Nearby attractions worth visiting - Ocean World (snorkel with fish in an aquarium, swim alongside tiger, and take pictures with tropical birds), Bravissimo Show is a MUST, and Sunday Welcome Party if included is also a must - lots of FOOD!!! Excursions are available at additional cost and staff is helpful in providing information. Personally I went horseback riding through a local business and it was wonderful! * Pools and nightly entertainment * Gift Shop on site * Duty-Free shop on site * Housekeeping staff made a cute little design with our blankets on our fourth day there - nice touch Cons: * When we arrived our fridge was leaking but the staff took care of this. * You have to pay for a safe (strongly encouraged for your valuables) * You may feel uncomfortable with the people in uniform who come up to ask you about something similar to a timeshare. I just politely told them I was not interested and walked away. Just be nice and they will leave you alone. Beach water was not swim-friendly. We mostly just swam in the pools. Too much seaweed in the water, but we did try their water boat which was super fun! They have other sports you can do on water - you will see the vendors on the beach if interested. This would be at an additional cost, of course. All in all, make sure you try a Bahama Mama! That's what I am missing right now!
