We came here as a family of four with two adult daughters in the week running up to Easter. We made good use of the AI food and despite what others have said, never had a problem choosing something different to eat. We didn't use the poolside AI food much but the drinks were handy, although we resisted the temptation to over indulge unlike some guests.
I found it reasonably ok to find sunbeds at the pool although the prime locations had to be secured early if you want them. In Some areas around the pool the beds were very cramped together.
The entertainment was pretty good and only spoilt by the one or two loud individuals who overdid it on the inclusive booze and could not find their volume control.
As i said this was our first all inclusive and i have to say whilst it has its attractions, i would prefer to pay less, go half board, and buy my own drinks when i want them.
Overall, the staff were very helpful, the food and drinks reasonable quality, the location - pretty good for the beach and local facilities, bars, shops etc.
