Normally, I would never consider booking at a larger resort, but we were here for a wedding. This place was PHENOMENAL! We went the first week of December and we picked the perfect time. The resort wasn't busy at all. We never had to wait for drinks or to get into any of the restaurants - in fact, there were some nights when we didn't have reservations at the a la carte restaurants but we were able to get in.
The food and the service were fantastic - something that I rarely say when I go to an all-inclusive. Usually by the end of the trip, I am tired of the same old, same old in the buffet, but this is hardly the case.
The room was probably one of the nicest hotel rooms I've stayed in at an all-inclusive - tons of space, a rainfall shower, double sinks, double closets... (we had a Junior Suite). The only thing that is awful was the mattress - very hard and uncomfortable! However, we were told to ask the front desk for one of the mattress covers they have, so they came and put that on our bed and gave us new pillows, and that made a WORLD of difference! I highly recommend for you to do this when you get to the resort, as the beds are literally ROCK HARD.
The beach was wonderful - tons of seats available and lots of palm trees for shades, which was perfect for keeping our little 18-month-old out of the sun. The beach was a little rocky and there was coral/rocks to look out for in the shallow end, but I am hardly going to complain about that because it is just so beautiful!
We didn't spend much time by the pool, but we DID spend a ton of time in the kid's waterpark. Let me say, if you have little ones, this is the resort for you! Our little guy could not get enough of all the kid's slides, etc. Unfortuntaly, he was too young to use the Kids Club, but from what I have heard, that is also great for kids as well.
I HIGHLY recommend this resort to anyone, especially those who have children.
