8/10 Very good

I really liked the friendly and helpful staff. Also how close was the pool, the beach and the water park. All excellent!!! The food and drinks were good. Room service and mini bar was taken care of on a daily basis. The room was a little old for a 4 star hotel, but other than that excellent experience!!!!!
