There was no service of food outside in the patio/pool area, there was only a buffet for lunch, and there was a 24 hour sports bar for food, that was refrigerated and had to be microwaved, it was horrible. Only one server in the sports bar. No alcohol provided before 10am. and no alcohol except Beer and wIne during dinner. If you wanted a mixed drink you had to go to get it yourself. The servers were rude at times. There was no entertainment after the main show that ended by 10:45, so if you wanted to do anything, you had to go into the little town for a dance place and spend $$ for entry and drinks. This hotel needs improvements to meet the expectations of an ALL INCLUSIVE hotel
