Very disappointed with the pressure to attend 9 a.m. vacation plan meeting and breakfast that we experienced when first arriving. After saying we were not interested they brought over another person with more pressure to attend. We were hungry, had not been to our room. Tired after long flight. My husband and I were at the resort before it changed names and never experience this. Many others we talked with were not happy either. I see where this will not be posted, but we will pass this on as we have recommended to others. Also disappointed that the kids had to pay to play miniture golf. Purchased buggy boards when didn't know the red flag was up and they would not refund the $30. They had to know that the red flag was up and kids not allowed in water. Would recommend hotel only after sharing these experiences.

We met 30 or so family members for an older generation birthday and this place catered to all ages. Santo provided great service at check in and got us an upstairs room with two double beds a trundle and a day bed that could have slept 5. The room was very clean, the choices of restaurants was decent, the beach bar served amazing and fresh coconut and pineapple drinks. The bartender there, Juan from Boca Chica, had a great manner (and smile) and made virgin versions of fun drinks for the kids including an amazing mud slide they all loved. The local vendor next door (JC Peny - no relation to the US Store) held a cute shop with negotiable prices and I scored a massage from Yoselin for a song - and she was strong. We got some cute dresses and bracelets for souvenirs in the shop. We settled on the Mexican restaurant in the resort every night because the manager knew my family was hard to please and agreed to get us anything from any kitchen in his location so we didn't have to jump around for each family member - that's the amazing service I like. Great place that is very affordable for a large family of 5 to 50. The only thing is that the rooms are VERY far apart unless planned as a group and the property from highway to beach is so far they use little trains/trams to move folks around. Too far to walk quickly.

It is a pleasant place to stay for a few days for a moderate vacation. Its beach is probably located at the best section of Playa Dorada. All staff are nice. Food is ok given that it is all inclusive. This resort is one of the biggest ones in the area but is still small comparing to resorts I've been in other Caribbean countries.

One of the most friendliest staff I've ever seen the only thing I didn't like about the hotel is when you go yo the beach there's a group of people trying to sell you stuff and they just continue to bother also stay away from those time share people
