Ude stuff, incorrect information about the hotel
There was some incorect information about the hotel services. It says that the restaurants in the hotel are open but actually they were closed. The manager was very rude when I came to complain.

10/10 Exceptional

The location was amazing. The staff was friendly and professiinal. The all inclusive food and drinks were very good and helpful with a picky 3yo toddler. It would be nice for the hotel to provide more parking, it was paid, but at $4 per day it was not too bad
