My husband and I had a great time. The beach is clean; it's not over-crowded; the water is calm, hardly any waves; the pool also is not over-crowded. Also this resort is wheel-chair accessible. We travelled from Feb 22 to Mar 1 which is prime season and I can say we didn't feel like we were packed in like sardines....

Had a great time ! Only thing to complain about is that I didn't stay longer. Loved playing volleyball on the beach and in the pool. The club was fun.. Great music and great place to learn how to dance merengue. :)

The hotel was beautiful, the room was very pleasant and comfy. All the accommodations were top notch. There were a few minor items needing to note. Towels for the room were not replaced until late, like 5 or 6 o'clock late. The hot tub/pool was cold. The wine selection was no better than par. You MUST wear insect repellent if...
