    While I can’t say we had a bad stay, there are more negatives than positives about the resort. Positives - Mikes coffee shop! Open 7:30am-11:00pm with a variety of coffees, smoothies and fresh cakes. So good! - Excellent WiFi in rooms and around the resort. - It has a running path! That kept me sane! One mile loops around the resort. Particularly important since the Gym is only open for limited hours in the morning and evening. - Daily room cleaned by “Amber”. She was fantastic! Considering there was so much wrong with the resort and hotel services, at least our room was attended to every day. - Very hard working staff. Over worked and stretched. It’s hard to complain to them as things seem beyond their control (also important to note that when you do complain they don’t listen anyway!!). - “America” who makes amazing omlettes for breakfast- just be prepared to wait in line about 15-20mins. -Japanese restaurant- a fun experience and food was great. However, it is only open certain nights and you have to make a reservation. These 90min slots are usually all taken by 9am. Also, you can only attend this restaurant once during your stay which is unfortunate as it’s by far the only food place to eat here. Negatives - The food! I’m not fussy...but it really is below average. First you have to wait in line for a table most nights, and then when you do get a table it takes a long time to get served food and drinks...then when your food finally does arrive...it’s cold!!! Always so disappointing as the menus are decent, there is a good variety of restaurants (when open!) but the food was always cold.OH, and potions are tiny!!!! So so disappointing. The Italian is ok...but that’s it. - It’s not a “romantic” destination. Kids everywhere!!! Even in the “romantic dining” restaurant. Or the Japanese restaurant says you must be 14+ however that wasn’t enforced. It didn’t really bother us...but important to note for other couples. If you are expecting a quiet romantic meal you won’t get it anywhere here! - Masks aren’t enforced. It’s hard to believe there is a worldwide pandemic with all the people swarmed around the pool bar and some of the staff giving high-fives to guests!!! They have procedures in place to make it COVID compliant- but these aren’t enforced. - The pools are FREEZING!! - The Mini Bar consists of 2 bottles of water, 2 beers, 2 bottles of soda and 2 packets of cookies. And it may take days before it is refilled.

    Raul and Claudio were the best! They play really good music and were great hosts. They switched up the activities a lot and included everyone at the pool! We wish we could stay longer, this resort was perfect for us and we will be coming back!
