The food wasn’t that good and common areas were dirty I guess I expected more cleanliness during COV-ID. All in all I would book again as the staff and overall experience was exceptional. Speedy check in and out and hotel events were good!

Dining staff need to work on guest service and attentiveness to guest needs. Seems like most everyone had to hail a server to get something, water or drink refills, etc.

I hate long reviews, so I will make it as short as possible and to the point Pros: Shows, Water and beach Cons: Unfriendly staff,this "Hotel" is SUPER UNDERSTAFFED (I had a feeling as if I forced workers to come to work on a Sunday...everyday), dirty and cloudy pools, no room service, disgusting and empty 24 hour "sport" bar ( nahos and stale burgers is what you get past 11), no name tags of food you about to eat in the buffet (they either misplaced or missing) , EVERY dinner is the same food, food quality is the lowest I've seen in my 10 years of traveling, restaurants is self-service and the food is so bad that we contemplated to go eat outside the resort. No beach bar. No management in sight. Overall, waste of money and a vacation time for 10 people. P.S. none of us drank tap water and ALL of us got a stomach poison different days. Absolutely disgusting experience. Shocked and disappointed. -1 star.
