Upon check in we were oriented with a resort map of which we...

The grounds, and facilities were very clean and well maintained, and we were impressed with the genuine friendliness of everyone who worked there. We spent two glorious weeks there, and the "all inclusive" was certainly worth the money. Would recommend this place to everyone.
