We just got back from this hotel and overall was a great experience.
The beach is the most important feature to us, and it was just what we were looking for - was terrific.
Grounds/Rooms are well kept including housekeeping coming several times a day to refill the snacks.
Pool area was very large and clean
Plenty of bar areas for unlimited drinks.
Adults only LEVEL area was updated and kid free!
The buffet food was a typical all-inclusive (not great but not bad either). There were some great dining options at night (our favorites were the Thai, French, and Capri restaurants).
Very large property and waiting for the "train" to pick you up can take awhile. It was about a 10 minute walk from our room to the lobby (not terrible).
To our surprise, the staff was not very fluent in English despite the amount of US visitors. We travel alot of Caribbean destinations and I guess we've just taken it for granted that these resorts should have plenty of bilingual employees.
SPA area was very nice however the massages we received were inexperienced (felt like self-taught massage) and exorbitantly overpriced considering the service we had. We would certainly have skipped the $500 couple massage after this.
Most the staff was very accommodating EXCEPT the bartenders. I know mixing drinks for everyone gets old, but at least acknowledge customers when they approach the bar. Otherwise, everyone else was great.

Friendly reception area. Clean over all. A little dated. Mostly Europeans Visiting; not many Americans.
The hotel is comprised of a few buildings so getting to the room was a bit of a challenge, felt like a maze.
Bed sheets smelled humid. I sprayed them with perfume at night before bed.
The hot water did not work in our room, but the climate was such that cold showers did not bother us.
Food was good. No food or water poisoning.
Do NOT SPEND money on the hotel WIFI! what a rip off. NEVER worked the whole time there.
The activities were fun and the night club was great.
Did a safari excursion booked through the hotel and we all enjoyed and loved the experience
Maid was nice and did an excellent job cleaning up after a family of 4 with two small children.
This was a last minute booking because we missed our flight for a cruise. We were quite satisfied with what we spent. We would definitely return if on a tight budget. Do not book if expecting a 4 to 5 star hotel.
