This resort is beautiful! The staff is friendly and always cleaning, smiling and seem happy. The food is amazing. There are 6 pools with3 swim up bars and a water slide pool. It is huge. There are plenty of chairs at the pools and beach. I cannot wait to go back! If I have to give a con - the beds are hard, the pillows are not great and there is no designated smoking areas. You cannot see the beach from the pools.
