Nice Place ! Check in was a breeze. They gave us a map of the coplex, but we just found our way around. Some other resorts explain how things work and where things are, but this place did not. First time all inclusive people would have had some questions. The Main Buffet was very good. I would have used it for all meals. We did try the (4) Ala Carte Restaurants. There was a group of (10) of us and we did not have a problem getting reservations. We liked the Italian the best. All of them displayed the food very well. I used the gym several days, and every day they were out of cups, and the water bottle was empty. I asked the Spa people to replenish and they did, but I started taking a bottle of water from my room to cover that. We had plenty of nice clean towels and wash cloths. We did get a towel decoration a couple of days. The resort always had people sweeping and scrubbing to keep things clean. People coming from the beach would drag sand into the pool area, even though there were 2 places to wash off the sand. As another review stated, there were "Spring Breakers" and I was also suprised that was allowed. We had several great waiters and helpers at the Buffet and in the Ala Carte Restaurants. We tipped our maid a coule of dollars every day, and we tipped at each meal. They really appreciate it! Our room had a King Bed, and was located on the top floor (3045-3065 ??) area and we could look out the patio door and watch the waves of the gulf, and look over the courtyard and the pool. Nice view !!
