The all-inclusive story
Wonderful location, beach, palms, sea, pools and everything else imaginable; excellent amenities. However, the resort is enormous and very, very crowded - maybe because we visited during spring break. Things were pretty well organized, all considered, but for the class of the resort there were certain things that just didn't fit - eg AC in our children's room did not work and was not fixed despite calls; mosquitoes galore at night we are covered with bites; restaurants and food there were excellent but if you happen to get hungry while they are closed, say between 10:30 am and noon, and 3-6 pm, your only option is room service which has about 10 items on the menu, and who wants to stay in the room to wait for it... Service was very friendly and everyone was really trying to be helpful.

The good and the bad
The hotel was great! Staff really friendly. Food was great, lots of selections. I wasn’t too happy with the fact that we had to make reservations (which took over an hour to make bc the guest service guy took his time and told us everything was booked but wait let me check this time and that time)at all the restaurants and when we did as soon as we picked a restaurant they told us many were booked or it was 9pm reservations. That was really late and no exceptions were made even though I was with a child. When we got to the restaurants there were many empty tables. Hmmmmmmmmmmm????? The Mexican restaurant was really great, hibachi restaurant was great, and the Brazilian steak house had the best guy making Brazilian drinks table side. He was so happy, singing and his energy was fantastic. Now the worst part was the kids club. Ughhhhhhh!!! Activities were few and boring. Every time my daughter wanted to go. there was no kids there. One time we were there and a mom brought 2 boys and the girl working there told her sorry there are no kids here today. What???!!!! We were inside waiting for other kids. So they turned kids away and no one wanted to stay bc there was no one there and it was boring. The workers were lazy and didn’t want kids there, it was spring break! There should have been a ton of kids there. So overall a great hotel, great pools, delicious food, mostly friendly staff. Oh yeah the beds in the room were falling off the wooden supports, that needs to be fixed.
