This is quite a nice resort, but upon our arrival (9:15PM), there was some confusion about our rooms (there were 3 families traveling together), and the rooms were not ready. We waited with all of our kids (8 total) for two hours in the hotel lobby while they added beds to our rooms. We missed our dinner reservation - not made aware of the 9:30 "last serve" time at the restaurant - and the hotel didn't offer any accommodation to this. The next four days went smoothly and we were able to communicate with the staff quite easily. We booked two tours and two dinner reservations (in town) with the concierge. The pool is great for kids of all ages (including a water slide) and the beach is nice with a great inflatable obstacle course, for an additional cost. The use of most pool and beach items are available for an extra charge. There are a few restaurants to choose from on site for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but we preferred to eat in town. We were able to travel by taxi quite easily and most people spoke enough English to get us where we wanted to go. The hotel is close by a small grocery store, which was also convenient for buying drinks and snacks. Our families had a great time, and I would definitely recommend this resort - but you may want to check your reservation prior to arrival.
