We fell in love with this gorgeous little resort last year and thought we'd finally found the perfect all inclusive for our yearly vacation. We had recommended it to family and friends and even took our senior parents there when we returned this past week. Once again we were continuously impressed with the amazing staff. Erik at the buffet, always... More

People were very friendly and helpful. Very relaxing. 2 bedroom oceanfront with a balcony was great. Fun club group was great. The food in the buffet was only ok, but it was a large buffet. Went to the mexican restaurant and it was pretty good.
