Incredible property, everything was well maintained and beautiful. Room was clean and had everything you needed. Pool/beach area was perfect. Tons and tons of seating. Staff were AMAZING!! Best service I have ever received from any all inclusive I have ever stayed at. Buffet was high quality restaurant style food, every day it changed so you never got tired of eating there. My only disappointment is in our 5 night 6 day stay they were only able to make reservations at 2 of their 3 ala carte restaurants. We asked immediately when we checked in and they said they were all booked. They should increase the capacity to the ala carte restaurants. Nightly entertainment was entertaining. Bar staff near the pool area was very attentive and friendly. I highly recommend staying, I would love to return.
