Beautiful facility, didn't accommodate group well

We were a family group of 11, 8 adults, 3 children. We enjoyed our visit, but had a number of frustrations. The facility is very nice. Beautiful beach, nice pools, large, clean rooms, nice golf course. They also had nice pools for children. On arriving, we needed one hour (30 mins on line, 30 mins at counter) to check in, despite the resort having all our information in advance. After an hour, we were told to come back at three to get our room keys. At 3, we needed 45 minutes to get our keys! That's way too long for the check in process. Our rooms were very nice suites, in the building near the beach, with Jacuzzis on the balcony. When I went to make reservations for the a la carte restaurants, I was only given one for the seafood and two for the steakhouse. I knew we were a big group and had tried contacting the resort in advance to get reservations, but it didn't help. We never got seating at the Italian, Mexican or French restaurants. We were given a 9:15 reservation for the Japanese, which was too late for the three children, but we did enjoy a nice dinner with some of the adults. The steak and seafood restaurants are located in the pool area on the second floor. We were able to get nice ourdoor seats with pleasant views. One night at the steakhouse, our entire meal was somehow "forgotten". After a very long wait the waiter saw us, looked surprised, and went to find our meals. When they arrived, mine was missing. Thus another wait. With the exception of the Japanese restaurant, the food was marginal. The breakfast buffets were good, with omelette stations, smoothie stations and plenty of fruit and pastries. The staff was often pleasant, but not very good at solving problems. Lots of rules, like no coffee cups by the pool (understand), but no "to go" cups as an option. This is our sixth family all-inclusive. Maybe the resort was just not well equipped to handle larger groups, but that created a lot of frustrations for us. Too bad. Again, the facility was nice and the weather was perfect.

Ok at best

The hotel iteself is beautiful and the staff is so friendly “ but it ends at that. Impossible to get a decent dinner reservation time, but the food regardless is not good, in fact most of it is inedible. Most of the shops (if not all) are scams, they give you one price and charge you more if you decide to use your credit card (a couple hundred dollars more) so if you go, use cash! Otherwise I recommend not shopping at the hotel at all!! Even charging to your room they take advantage. We bought 163 dollars worth of cigars and they charged 263 dollars to the room. And if you think you can dispute it...you are wrong! They made us pay regardless and gave us their website to dispute online. And the house alcohol is not very good. The vodka taste like tequila and whiskey taste more like rum. This is not one of your typical “all inclusive” resorts, it’s more like a partial inclusive, and the partial part is not that special, you do not get what you pay for and you can pay the same amount for so much more in a better location!

Beautiful resort !! Food and beverage need work!

It’s hard to complain when you return from a beautiful week! This resort is beautiful with every accommodation you could want! However they really need to work on the quality of the food and drinks! The A’lacart restaurants were good with the exception of the seafood Coral restaurant which we were very disappointed with. Almost inedible! We struggled as a family with 2 small children to eat anything for breakfast and lunch and pretty much resorted to cereal yogurt and peanut butter toast. Coffee was terrible and there is no place to get it except the buffet. They have a coffee and cigar shop that opens at 4pm? Didn’t make much sense. Anyway, if food and drinks aren’t that important to you I wouldn’t hesitate but for me, I would not return to this resort.
