If you are american ...realize that the locals move at a slower pace. You are on vacation so slow down. When in Rome ... If you can do that, you will have very few complaints.
An "adult" is 18 years old, FYI. We had hard time finding that fact when trying to determine whether we could book barcelo beach--the sister resort next door. It was cheaper by a lot. You get FULL access to beach and palace if you book at the adult beach resort. Very short walk between the two. Save yourself some bucks!
Beach is topless, although we didn't see many.
There are several group activities, but not as abundant as we have seen at other family oriented resorts.
Bring two more bottles of 50 and 30 sunscreen than you think you will use. Really. The sun is punishing. Was here in June. If you run out you are paying a premium.
Pack band aids. Everyone needed them for one reason or other.
Enjoy. It really was a very nice resort.
