I am looking forward to returning to this hotel. One downfall is that the beach was far but there was always a taxi available to take us to the beach. If you do...

We were there from February 4th,2017 until the 11th and I must say it was excellent. Rooms, food, entertainment and the grounds were very good, the people there were super, especially the concierge. This was our first time there, but hopefully if we go again, we will upgrade to Ambar where its for adults which is quieter. I am hoping...

So, here's my honest and full review, as acknowledged by tripadvisor for being a resort expert. The Answer to my initial question is NO. Even if I was to be paid to come back here I wouldn't. This is a huge hotel chain with 7 hotels on the same lot. First off, we booked the turquesa hotel, and got upgraded...

We just returned from our vacation today (February 23rd). This was the worst vacation ever. I have traveled twice a year for over 20 years. This is not a 4 star resort!! First off – the staff is rude!! I will say that 70% of the staff could not or would not speak English. We could barely order drinks during...

Good stuff - Grounds and pools and lobby were immaculate and well-maintained, we liked some of the entertainments, we got attentive service most of the time from the staff, we liked the little water park for our 2 & 4 year olds.
