Very friendly staff, Gerald, Jenny, Claudia In the Palm Restaurant were always very courteous and served us always with a smile. The buffet should have a little more variety in choices of food. Beautiful beach

Great Location. Very clean. Food was OK. We are a royal members and all the good stuff was not available to us too. So, who is it for? We were upgraded to a suite, it was an amazing room. There is not much to do for kids at this resort.

Room was big and comfortable. Pool and beach areas were great. Food was good in the buffet, however the restaurants weren't that good. Food felt like re-heated meals from hours ago. It only offers 1 hour of free wifi a day in the lobby area.

On the beautiful beach, clean rooms and good service, food could be better quality. The beach was clean and had plenty of shade. The grounds were beautiful especially by the pool with a swim up bar. Drinks were pretty good, they didn't skimp on the alcohol!!
