I have been on several all inclusive vacations and I have to say this was by far the worst one EVER. The room was so small with 2 single beds which were very old and not particularly clean. Also we had only one tiny window which provided a view only when jumping on the bed to see what was outside.
The washroom was musty and the tub looked like it hadn't been cleaned in several years.
The food was generally okay but both my travel partner and I got stomache aches including the runs and cramps after the same meal.
The pool looked much bigger in the pictures. It was rather small and crowded with lots of kids including babies in diapers which was a bit of a worry.
Poolside activities were rather lame and not many people participated.
The "watersports" were not available much to our surprise due a national holiday we were not made aware of prior to our booking.
The staff were hot and cold- friendly at times but not so friendly other times. Seemed to be they were looking for tips which determined their attitude towards you.
Overall I would NOT recommend this resort and I would pick another destination for certain.
