I was very worried about the reviews of this resort but went for it because the price was right.
Im glad i was wrong. I didn't need to be worried at all.
This was the cleanest resort i have ever been to. the food was good but not excellent but definitely better than Cuba. We emailed the resort and requested a room closer to the lobby as we were worried about the noise from the building of the pier in the bay and it was granted but even when i was out and about i never heard noise anyway.
The shows were good but after a week become repetitive. The casino was fun and i won way more than i spent. just lucky i guess. I was happy to see that the casino was closed during the day.
My wife and i and our daughter had the best vacation ever at this resort and would recommend it to anyone. there were never any problems with the locals but there were some there and they just kept to themselves.
Staff were awesome and catered to us like royalty always a smile.
The beach was great. lots of shade if that's your thing and tons of space for sun i never had an issue. the pool bar was a big hit everyday. we met lots of awesome people from all around the world.
We would definitely recommend this resort and hopefully return to it one day. I truly believe that your vacation is what you make it.
Watch out for the constant pestering from the locals wanting you to buy stuff and always negotiate the price as they over inflate everything.
I was hoping to run into someone from TripAdvisor but no luck that i know of
