    Excellent time here! We would probably come back here, especially if vegan choices are put on the menus. Positive - Friendly and helpful workers everywhere we went. Beautiful, comfy room with a view of the pool. Pretty good wifi in the room and outside. Great beach, as it was ALL SAND, and we never had to worry about stepping on rocks or stones! Plenty of chairs available when we were there, so you usually didn't have to worry about putting a towel out early to save a chair. Very good food and choices in all restaurants - and plenty of seats in most of the food areas. We were greeted quickly and given a table of our choice. Usually. a server would ask us what we would like to drink as soon as we sat down - they knew that better service would probably result in a better tip. Very good shows every night in the main theatre area. Negative - There weren't specific vegan items at the restaurants. When we asked the waiters what vegan options were available, the waiter said they could leave the meat out of an item. Of course, vegans also don't eat mayonnaise, butter, eggs, etc. so there were some meals that vegans ate that wouldn't have been their choice. There isn't a hot tub here (which I know is getting pretty picky), but we have enjoyed a hot tub in the evening at other resorts. (There is a hot tub in the spa, but you have to pay to use it.)

    Property had many zoning which was nice. We where in the adults only section to get away from families but listening to the sports bar to the wee hours in the morning got a little old. Also the buffet is pretty good better than some of the restaurants. Had to wait 1.5hts to eat at Asiana but I understand why best food in whole resort. Food over all was ok not great. No beach service or none that we saw Great family resort though

    We enjoyed the property location to the beach and the blue water! The staff were nice and service at the restaurant were first class! The wedding planner was very good and the flow of the wedding was perfect! One thing to mention on a very negative note was the property hospitality agent for Expedia; we booked our return transportation through Expedia so we went to get our pick up time from him; we had never incurred such arrogance and ignorance on a vacation. This agent treated multiple family members with the same tone on various interactions. It was a disappointment that one man could affect the trip with his negative and condescending tone.

    The ocean view room would've been great except for the hedge which blocked our view of the ocean , so the ocesn view was not as expected. The dinnrrs at the restaurants could have been served much hotter as frequently it was only warm at best.

    Had our wedding here which was amazing! We went in the garden then had dinner on the terrace. All the staff was so inviting and friendly. Only ONE thing I would change, i wish they had people serving on the beaches and pools! Ive never been to an all inclusive where you had to go get your drinks from the bar (im lazy and wana nap on the beach and tip someone for delivery of drinks!).

    Our room over looked the pool which was lovely. The music they played at the pool was rather repetitive, very loud and went on most of the day. I think if you had a garden view room it would be quieter. The beach was lovely, lots of shade and peaceful. The resort was easy to get around as they had many large golf carts that would pick you up and drop you off where you wanted to go.
