Nice accommodations, clean; very friendly & attentive staff. Restaurants are 'no reservations' which is unusual at all-inclusive resorts (from my experience) and it was nice not to have to make all our dinner plans the day we arrived. We had no trouble being seated & there were 7 of us! The Buffet was nice & offered many choices. We were...

The food was not fabulous but very good. There were a lot of options (buffet, a la carte restaurants,...
