I booked the hotel because it had a 4 star rating. After our arrival i was very disappointed with not only the condition of the room we stayed in but the service offered. The hotel is not all inclusive which was fine although we tend to go to all inclusive hotels. But to start off the staff seems uninterested in serving you. While in the beach area I had to walk over to the waiters to request their service. They would see that we had arrived by the beds on the beach and wouldn't approach us to ask if we needed anything. Also, the rooms were in poor condition and many things needed reparing such as the bathroom door which wouldn't close and the shower needed repair as well. Outside of the room there was also a ready strong feces odor that would get into the room. There is also no types of activites within the premises and the only restaurant open had the same menu every. Truly dont recommended this hotel.

Relaxed Wonderland

Pros: Great room, excellent staff...Property is beautiful.
Cons: Transportation to mall area,,, Maybe bike renting ... or scheduled 30 min pick ups back and forth to mall area.
Location: Tennis, golf and a great pool, but with the mall (20 min walk) is great just must get there. Theater, shops, ATMs and eateries are pluses. Also SAFE.
Easy check-in, just a great place to chill. Backing up to a great golf course. limited cars passing by,
