We liked the location of the property and the grounds were nice, however the staff were blatanly rude and not helpful at all. The food was less than desirable (read: gross), and dont go to the buffet hungry because it takes a long time to get sat and you'll never get coffee or juice unless you get it yourself. We waited it out one night: 15 minutes watching staff walk right by us at dinner. No one ever brought us silverware, water, or took our drink order. Finally, I got up and poured my own water and that's when someone noticed us. The other restaurants on the property needed reservations. I asked for a dish at Jinx restaurant and the waitress never brought it to me. Ascot Pub is better food (typical pub fare-no reservations needed) and friendlier folks. Paul the bartender was the best. They were out of several menu items when we were there though and the serve times were weird. Don't expect to have 24 hour accomodations to food. We were not the only folks woth complaints. We overheard guests SEVERAL TIMES A DAY complaining over various things. Mostly food, service, and front desk.

The property is clean and the staff is mostly friendly, other than a few here and there. The food is good, but their reservation system to eat at the restaurants other than the buffet is lacking. They also don't watch their rule on reserving lounge chairs around the pool, so getting one is pretty hard as people leave a towel on one all day, even when they aren't using them. Check in and check out is quick and easy. The beach is beautiful, but it is a shared public beach, so you do have a hard time getting a lounge chair there as well. Seeing the planes land and take off is fun! The pool bar is hard to get a drink at because they serve people both in and out of the pool, and most of the time only have one bartender- definitely need at least 2. Overall, I would definitely go back to this resort, they just have a few minor things to work on.

I would NOT recommend this over priced resort. I paid a high price for a new all inclusive resort. The food was substandard, restaurants were supposed to be open til 10:00 pm and we were refused service at 9:30 pm and had to pay to eat offsite every day. Went to breakfast 2 times. First day they ran out of bacon the second day they ran out of sausage, 1 toaster for the entire hotel with a huge line. We could not stomach the buffet for lunch or dinner. The bar tenders refused to make frozen drinks after 5:30 p.m. as they closed at 6:00 and were cleaning up and too tired. The first night I had to take a very cold shower as we did not know that being at the far corner room we had to let the water run every day for 20-30 minutes to heat up. I complained to management in person about everything and included that dinner reservations had to be made at a kiosk and they were booked for the week and I could not get a reservation. He did make reservations for me but when we got to each restaurant they did not have any reservation for us. Luckily I had a letter from the manager or they would not have let us in. They really didn't care once they got your money. I complained online and they gave me a number to call that only rang busy. Left message no rt call. They locked our air conditioner several times. They woke us up at 4:30 pm from an after beach nap pounding on our door to do a mandatory towel and pillow inventory. I felt robbed!!!! I could say more but no more space.

The staff at the front desk is unhelpful, unwelcoming and needs retraining. More interested in personal conversations with friends than helping paying customers.

Didn’t like that I was told the gym was open 24hrs when it really wasn’t. And the shower was half open.

I loved the facility. The view is incredible. The staff is amazing. I was not impressed with the people’s loud drinking at the pool. I don’t know how you would control that, since alcohol is included. Maybe more supervision at the pool...

The guest rooms are really nice and the grounds are kept beautifully. However, the pool area is extremely loud and chaotic with the "children's play area" taking up the majority of the pool. The pool bar is extremely small. The hotel lobby is nice and spacious. But the elevators are a MESS! They are extremely slow and aren't programmed efficiently. Usually, a crowd of 5-20 people were waiting to get on at the ground floor. Plan on waiting 10-15 minutes every time you use it.
