While the location was nice, I wish the Cheap Caribbean site would have said the only way to get access to the "nice" beaches, bars, food, etc. was to purchase the VIP option. We thought since we were "all inclusive" that's what it meant...not even close. A non VIP person only gets a sliver of ok beach. On both sides of you are beautiful beaches, good food & snacks, bars, free wifi, etc. You are treated like dirt if you are not a VIP. No name brand alcohol, a lousy smelly old room that backs up to the road that all the hotel staff use so it's noisy day and night. It's a shame. Very deceiving and I don't plan on using Cheap Carribean again or recommending them any time soon.

Great experience & booked our next trip already!

I was a little nervous from the reviews. Check in was a nightmare but after a couple of different trips to different rooms any many trips back to the front desk we finally got a room in bldg#1 that was comfortable! The front desk staff is not very friendly....It is a big resort & there is alot of walking if you are not use to it. Great exercise! The room is stocked everyday with water bottles/beer & soda at no extra charge. You can get a safe key for a few dollars a day. Bring ALOT of Dollar bills...tipping will get you excellent services! The staff works hard. Bring a beach towel so you don't have to deal with the towel keys-use them for the a/c unit on the wall when you enter your room. You can get some great deals on the beach from the venders you really don't have to leave the resort. This resort is VERY SAFE! That was a plus. Security is really tight & they are very friendly & helpful. There are many gates to get into the resort. The food was good for a three star resort. Keep in mind it is a three star resort. The fresh omlettes/fruit & oatmeal in the am ..snacks all day to the buffet at night. The pasta was every good. The blue lagoon was the best by far. The V.I.P. is a must..fantastic..The pool bar was great-so was the staff at all the bars. It rained every day for a little bit but we made the best of it. There are time-share staff but they are just doing there job to promote this hotel. If you want to see the resort then go & get your welcome package. it is a bottle of rum & a t-shirt! It is worth it to pay the extra for the bus to take you to the resort. *Bumpy ride on a bus -it does have a/c & much better than getting a taxi! The best part of this resort is the entertainment staff. They made you feel like part of the family from morning to night. Starting with the water erobics with babyface in the am to the full staff at the pool playing vollyball and differnent games around the pool to karoekee/bingo and much more activites before & after dinner. Scooby, babyface & all the staff girls & guys were very entertaining. The dance lessons were fun. The shows at night were all fantastic. Everynight was a great show. The disco was also great. Never a boring moment at this resort! I have been to five star resorts all over & this resort has the best entertainment by far-they really go out of there way. It is a great get-a-way. Meet alot of nice people from all around the world. This is a great resort to relax with friends or for a family. We just booked our next four night getaway..can't wait to get back to have fun & relax in the sun!

BE AWARE

I just came back from the Resort on 01/09 and I would like to share my experience with Lifestyle. The personal of the hotel itself are very friendly. However, those people that work for the OLYMPUS TOUR are not helpful at all! My family and other guests that we met in the resort have bought the round trip transportation from the airport to the resort and paid the $56. What we did not know is that from the Resort to the airport there is ONLY one transportation leaving at 9:45am which is arranged through OLYMPUS TOUR. It means that if your flight leaves in the afternoon (which was our case) we would need to be stuck in the airport for 4 to 5 hours!!! They do have later times of transportation, but it is reserved for those people that DID NOT buy with cheapCaribbean coming with JETBLUE. We shared a large taxi which the hotel have called for us and paid $45. It is about 25 minutes ride. The people from Olympus tour are friendly to get you to buy their touristic trips, but they are not accommodating at all to your transportation back to the airport which many have paid for in advance! The food is just OK in the buffet at Casa Blanca!! I advise NOT to do any reservation at the Mexican, Domenican and Chinese restaurant the food has very poor quality! The Indian and Italian food was OK. If you book through cheapCaribbean you are considered VIP and can go to the VIP beach where the waiter comes to you offering drinks and you can other food as well! When you just arrive they assign a representative to give you the welcome gift, but underlined this " welcome gift" what they are trying to do is to sell you an membership/timeshare. From the beginning you can say that you are not interested and they leave you alone. I have been in many all inclusive resort which they always try to sell you the timeshare. They can be very persistent if you don't cut it from the beginning!!

No Big Issues/ Good Time

First I must say that I was terrified when i saw previous reviews regarding this resort but i really didnt have any issues when it came to this resort. I booked with cheap carribean and was able to use the VIP beach area, this area was very nice well kept and food and drinks were great. People said you had to get there early to get beds but i had no issues, it was a bit hard on the weekend but during the week i was able to get beds with shade at any time>> Had no problems with check in, stayed in the 4th building which was close to everything, stayed in a standard room, the room was fine for the time we spent in there (which was only to shower, get dressed and sleep)/ many others stated that the shower was a problem cause there was no door or curtain but i simply put a towel on the floor and i was fine. AC worked well, staff came and replaced sheets and towels everyday and my fridge was filled almost everyday. Now, regarding the sales people with the white collar shirts that try and sell you a time share, the can be a bit annoying, just to get it over with i went on the tour, i did let them kknow i didnt have alot of time to spare and reminded the sales person a few time just so it wont take long, it took about 45 mins, (word to the wise if you like to travel and have the $ its a good investment to buy the timeshare, i bought it but not till the end of my trip cause i wanted to speak with others that have purchased it) once i did the tour, when i was apporached i told them i did the tour and they did not bother me after that. Regarding service, i had no complaints, pretty much everyone was nice but remember $1 goes a long way with the staff so bring singles and if u run out the currancy will be more than happy to supply u with singles. Food... they tell u to stand in line at 1pm to get reservations which i never did because i always forgot, but i simply went to the restaurants and let them know that i will tip the staff and i was able to eat at 3 restaurants, seafood, mexican and chinese, .. seafood place called blue lagoon was the best.. (steak was awsome).. I also ate at the buffet once on italian nite, it wasnt that great but it was edible.. I heard the other nites were good.. i ate at the buffet for breakfast everyday and just be aware they serve the same breakfast everyday, but it was fine.. People said that they got sick and i did not get sick at all, The thursday BBQ and Sunday nite party were really good... I did go to ocean world, it was fun.. The only thing i would warn people about when going to this resort is doing excursions, do it within the hotel, they have 2 onsite and you will be better off, i went outside for one of my excursions (people located next to the fake walmart) and was a lil disappointed but i learned my lesson, >> now my biggest and really only complaint is the merchants.. the resort lets these merchant on site by the pool, they are the worst, they will harrass u everytime u walk by them even after u tell them no so try to avoid them when they are there by walking in the opposite direction/ Overall i had a great trip and and the resort was fine, just make sure u dont go there with extreme expectations and u will have a good time
