We stayed here in 2009 after we got married. I was VERY happy with the service. The food was pretty food for all inclusive and having VIP status was definitely a perk. My only issue was if you were not VIP, the food and drink...More

Hi there I had sent this question to managment but I was wondering if you knew had any insight into my questions as a recent visitor.. please read my email below: "We came and stayed on the tropical side last year and absolutely loved everything about it! Great entertainment, very nice room, food was amazing and beaches (especially VIP beach) was exceptional. We enjoyed it so much we were interested in coming back this end of March as My twin sister and I celebrate our 30th birthdays. I'm excited to introduce my sister and her husband to your lovely resort but have some questions: 1)If I book all inclusive am I able to upgrade to VIP privileges when we arrive? If so how much $? 2)Also do you offer anything special for birthdays? 3) It was hard to get a beach bed (VIP beach) when we were there, has there been anything put into place regarding people reserving the beds and leaving for long periods of time? preventing others from using?" - Thank you for any help you can provide.
