We were only staying one night, on our way back out of the country. The hotel is extremely noisy. We could hear all the sounds of the other guests -- crying children, slamming doors, excited chatter in the common areas. The beach in front of the hotel is lovely, but the chairs are dirty, cheap and not comfortable. Staff there was great however!

Small and compact with everything close. Great value for the dollar. We booked the cheapest room rate and got an close ocean view. Not stingy at all with all inclusive food and drinks. Didn't have to wait. Very friendly staff in a community that caters to locals. Would definitely go back!

Great location, stayed in Tower 4, and room and facility very nice. Only problem was food: breakfast was great, but lunch and dinner got boring fast, and was on the bland side. Tried the Italian dinner several nights and it was really BLAND! However, the 3-4 fresh fruit choices at every meal were nice. The Drakes's place specialty dinner was EXCELLENT. Disappointed in alcoholic drinks; they all tasted watered down. So if I stayed again, I probably wouldn't go for the "all inclusive" package.

Breakfast was Great! Also the pools are very cool designed but not warm. The room was very tiny but did the trick. The bed was actually comfortable.

Pros!!! -everyone is so friendly -the view from the room was epic, was able to see the sunset over the beach every night! -the beach was so close, it was kept in stuch clean condition, and there were lovely places to make camp for the day! - many interesting and delicious alcoholic choices with the all inclusive plan -overall I had an amazing and spectacular time!!! I definitely want to go back as soon as I can! Cons :( -picky eaters be ware! It's understandably difficult to cook food for so many people on the budget they must have for the price you pay... the food reflects the price -that's it! Only complaint!

The best ever

Location: The right spot
Everyone was so nice and helpful. We couldn't asked for better service at the beach bar. The night sift "Why Not" is what we called he was the happiest person on earth and his brother. It's not a 5 star but for what you pay it's a 10 star. Food was good and lot's of it. You could hear the waves in your clean room done by very happy people. Meant a lot of nice people from Canada and Mexico (this must be were they stay on there Holiday). The staff when you come in work very hard and they do it with a smile too. Bathrooms are very clean at all times. If you are a person that picks at things than go there and they don't need you either. There are lot's of places to walk to and good restaurant around, which you don't need if you go all inclusive. We would go back for sure.

Beautiful Beach, Decent Amenities, Not so great fo

Location: Book at least one tour outside of the hotel. I did the snorkeling, hidden beach, boat tour and loved it!
The hotel is located on a beautiful stretch of beach, lounges and canopies available for those that wish to tan or stay in the shade. Hotel layout is simple, nothing fancy however comfortable, clean. Staff has a hard time understanding English. Rental of Kayaks is allowed however there is no time limit so if someone rents it out in AM they can literally have it sitting on the beach and not using it for the entire day =(. My biggest complaint would be with the food. I consider myself a NON- picky eater. However my first dinner there consisted of lasagna (with no meat/cheese, very little sauce, and some greens), plain pasta, and i forget what other carbohydrate was available. The rest of the selection was some chicken that did not look appetizing and broccoli that was yellowing. The best meal of the day by far was breakfast. Lunch and dinner had very little selection and the food was either overcooked or under-flavored. I have been to a lot of hotels where the reviews for food were abysmal and loved it. This is the first place where I have to complain.
