This resort was rated 4 stars and a most it should be a 2 Star. The facility itself is one main area all cramped together in one small space. It lists several pools however there is one large pool with several surrounding small pools not big enough to consider it a real pool. There is only one real bar and there was only usually one bartender on duty therefore service very slow, no one manning the swim up bar at all. Hard to get a drink for all the little kids sitting around the only bar. The adult only pool was full of little kids splashing around while the adults were trying to sit at the swim up bar or play volleyball. The little kids were literally walking across the bar top and the in water bar stools. The food was the same thing over and over each meal and not good. There is absolutely no pool side service so you had to wade through the kids at the bar to get a drink. There were piles of cups and trash sitting all around the pool with no one to pick them up. Customer Service was very poor, it took two days, multiple people and the threat of getting our money back and being moved to another resort before we could get a blanket for our room. The activities and shows were terrible, not of any 4 star resort caliber that we ever stayed in. Honestly very disappointed that we spent so much money for such poor customer service and accommodations. And the ABSOLUTE WORST PART is the scads of people walking around the facility absolutely terrorizing you to listen to there spiels and buy there services. We were on vacation the last thing you want is those people terrorizing you and demanding your time over and over when you have already said NO.

The Wet Feet sunset dining experience by the pool or beach is SO romantic!

The kids will love the rock climbing wall and all the activities sprinkled throughout the resort.


What We'd Change

The ocean waves are strong at times so difficult to snorkel here, but the soothing sounds and the warm temps make it still easy for swimming.
