Very pleasurable stay. Close to the beach. The food was good with plenty of variation. The drinks were also very. I recommend the mix drinks. The local beer wasn't as good as it would be in bottles since they only serve draught beer. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Check in was fast with no delays. I will stay here again.

Pros: nice pool, variety of foods at buffet, rooms kept very clean, nice entertainment
I was a little disappointed by the beach, which had a lot of seaweed and actually a lot of plastic garbage floating around. Found via walking the beach that there was a small rubbish dump near the water about 800 feet to the left of the resort.... someone should clean that up and keep it cleaned. There were usually very few people actually in the water. The strong wind on the beach was an issue too to make it uncomfortable, although later in the week I realized it was only like that in the afternoon... in the morning it was pretty calm.
The pool was great, with the 2 major areas between 4.5 and 5 feet deep, swim up bar, and embedded Jacuzzi (not heated though) and plenty of lounge chairs available throughout the day. Although I didn't participate in the games at the pool during the day, they were lots of fun to watch.
