The staff were simply the best. The smiles were genuine and the best service we had experienced in Latin America or the Caribbean. The room was ageing as was the resort but still beautifully kept up. The wildlife was amazing and the beach was magical. We walked it everyday.

This all inclusive resort was the worst experience we have ever had. The all inclusive package got you nothing but a buffet at ONE restaurant and bottom shelf liquor. The service was horrible and when we wanted to cancel the all inclusive two days into our trip that hotel gave

No. Our unit didn't have washer or dryer. We stayed in a one bed studio style. There may be large units that have washers & dryers so you would need to check directly with the resort.

Shuttle free to beach and hotel from airport. We saw quite a few families with kids, but as stated above, everything at the beach has a price. The food on the beach does blow the resort food away. Not overly pricey as I recall.

I don't think they have laundry. But as long as you wear a shirt over it, you can even wear your bathing suits in the main restaurant. I wore a swim suit most of the time and hand washed my clothes in the sink when needed.

"They all face the beach"
"Upgrade to the suites - avoid studios"
"Room 2310 has Wi-Fi in the room, do all-inclusive and you will most-likely get a hotel room, which is consistently better than the villas."
"Be prepared for birds singing you awake early in the a.m."
"get a room with a view of the ocean"
