    The pool was dirty every day and the bartenders were less than nice. The restaurant staff was amazing. Mary and Jorge are the best. Humberto and Rogelio were rude and probably the reason I will not come back to your resort.

    Our family of 4 had a great time at this resort. The workers were always smiling and willing to help. Nice location, beautiful beach, and the grounds were well taken care of with lots of vegetation. I would visit here again!
