Lack of quality of service, they need more carts to transport guests, they need to have a better food preparation. People smoke everywhere very dirty cigarettes all over the place. Great location, nice Beach great employees seems to be lack of management and ideas. For central America and Latin America, very boring, no life music on the beach nor at...
