Besides the wonderful beach, what was the favorite part of your trip?

You called it, without a doubt it was the beach, never felt sand so soft and the shaded huts meant we could spend many hours down there. The evenings in the lobby bar with the friendly bartenders and guests had to be a close 2nd, food was god too, saving $$$$ to go back next January.

We are going to be there Feb 17-24. Any suggestions for requesting a room? What type of room did you have and was it nice?? Also, was there lots to do on or near the resort?

We spent everyday at he beach, there was plenty to do at the resort if you wanted to, the pool crew always had something going on or you could just watch and enjoy. We took great beach walks and had fun just people watching. Seafood restaurant was so so, enjoyed the Mexican and Steakhouse, the Star rock was suprisingly good, get there early, had the grouper and shrimp appitizer. No matter what the staff tells you make your ala cart reservations as soon as you get there for best times, had no problems with buffetseither.. enjoy your trip.

We emailed the resort about a week before we left for a room close to the beach and pool. We did get our wish and the room was great very clean, may have been recently remodled, flat screen TV, mini fridg, safe, iron, hair dryer. Only downside was we had an outside facing balcony that overlooked a huge green tarp that blocked the construction next door, with the little time we spent in the room it was not an issue, but if you can get a room facing the courtyard the view will be better, take a bottle opener, the one in the room it not very good.

How warm was the ocean water? Was it warm enough to walk right in and stay in for awhile? Some people have been mentioning very large waves and a bit rough.

Was it hot on the beach most of the day?

The rooms and resort was spotless, they have so many workers that if a leaf dropped it would be picked up in no time. We saw plenty of children, most by the pool. they all seemed to be having a great time, plenty of kid friendly food at the buffets, the had a ice cream bar also. Ride from airport only about 25 minutes, not bad at all. You'll have a great time
