It was our first time at this resort. Loved the beach. Just wish we could of sat under a palapa. But I wasn’t going to get up at 5am. The pool was fun and relaxing. Staff for the most part were friendly, and helpful.

Hotel was very clean, in great location, staff was kind and receptive. I was disappointed by the room size and decor needs to be upgraded. I wish food for dinner was better at the buffet. We did some of their restaurants which were ok, but went out to eat for dinner 3x because

Despite only a slight incline from the beach to the waters edge the deep sand can make it a bit of a drudge. Once at the waters edge BEWARE. A few feet into the water and there is a SHARP drop off. It's not deep, but for anyone with a mobility problem this would be a significant obstacle both going in the water and even more difficult coming out. And I do mean DIFFICULT.

I did not pay for the Royal Club, however, if I go back I would... You get to dine at two additional restaurants, you get special seating on the beach, with a beach bar, and the Royal club members have a special floor. We did not have to get up early to find seats on the beach, one of the workers helped us get seats. However if you want to lounge by the pool in a seat or the cabana you do have to get up early or stay up late to secure a seat... I would go down around midnight and put a towel or tie a scarf around the cabana. As far as drinks on the beach, someone came around and took orders...some workers were quicker than others... But we never had to go to the bar, unless we wanted to, to get a drink... I hope this helps and you enjoy your trip 😊.

"Ask for a beach view in tower 2, tower 1 is the parking lot side"
"Royal level gives you many perks and at $70 nightly per room thought it was a fair price."
"Another resort."
"One side is all time share and they do get their own beach and more service"
"Block 1 is best, closer to reception, bars and dining areas. High floors are quieter."
