Overall this was a nice resort. Friendly & pleasant staff, entertainment team was great - special thanks to Micheal Angelo and Hector. Nice large pool with lots of chairs. You get what you pay for - $850/pp I think it was a good value!
We did encounter a few issues that I think could have been handled better and want to share
1) Ants in the washroom - although the cleaners tried daily ants would return few hrs after housekeeping would leave,
2) Beds were not the most comfortable and on a slope
3) surprised that so many waiters at the a la carte restaurants didn't know proper English
4) 2 of 5 adults in our group got sick!! my wife was in bed for 2 days and my father for 1 day
5) paid for late check out and didn't get fresh towels after 3 calls and rm was not cleaned.
We did pay $850/pp so I think overall it was a good deal.
I just wish they would have dealt with my concerns better, as little as a rm change or free late check out would have been a nice gesture.
