Great Snorkeling, Scheduling Crucial Posted 29-Mar-2014 on Hotels
The snorkeling off our beach was impressive, live coral, loads of fish, and a drop-off just an easy swim away. This would be enough for us to return, but if you're looking for more...read on. The Ultimate All Inclusive is a fantastic plan. It provided meals, activities, and spa services in sufficient amounts to please the whole family. Activities, spa, and eating require scheduling, unless you want to only eat buffet...which was consistently good. Where did the resort fall short? The kids club is small and focused mostly on the under 5 crowd with Little Tikes toys and play equipment being the primary focus. My six year old didn't complain, but other kids might. There were only two helpers there, and there wasn't a solid "program" that was followed. Rooms are not fancy and need some additional upkeep. They have sensors that turn down the A/C when doors are open or occupants are out. Ours failed the first night about midnight, turning off the A/C. The roll-away was terrible, but housekeeping did their best to remedy the situation with a couple of extra comforters thrown over the mattress. There was quite a bit of stair/door noise from the attached villa, but this may have been due to the neighbors.
