Reviewed 18 September, 2021
So I checked in yesterday Rooms are really clean gorgeous weather lets not jinx it .
Pros : Water Slide is open from 10 to 5 pm So is the Gym.
Staff is super courteous pls tip them.
Drinks are well made it depends how drunk you wanna get .
Overall ambiance a strong 4. Please try the Jerk station yum yum yummy .
They provide you free shuttle to shopping centre . For Canadians it’s 85 USD for Covid test you can pay by Cc . Americans don’t pay a dime. 😊. Lunch buffet is fantastic please go early by 1 pm it’s presentable. Then the Hoarders show up lol
Now the Cons
Disco is Closed
There is a Sports Bar open 24 hours the food is mediocre hot dogs I taste funny like sand paper so does the burger it’s perfect if you are drunk coz you really dunno what you eat .
Ala Carte Restaurants are a Buffet but you still need Reservation.
I tried Kaori buffet was sub par on a scale off 1 to 5 . I would rate at 2.
Chicken was dry . They dint replenish things hot food was actually cold . Food was tad salty.
Gonna try Italian today.😊
Food is bland needs more flavour

Food is bland needs more flavour and variety. Found cockroaches in our room. More restaurants like the Indian and Mexican restaurants which were closed should be open. Overall waiters were very helpful
For the beach and the ambiance, not food

Great ambiance, but not the food.
I would like to thank Jose from the main pool bar, Julissa from entertainment and Elvis from the jerk chicken beach grill. Great service, it was a pleasure to meet you three, thank you.
Overall, staff is very nice, respectful and you feel they always want to help.
Only downside is the food, it's heavy and almost everything is bathed in oil... Restaurants really need to step up in terms of quality... Except for Elvis' jerk chicken, omg it's the best I ever had. There were other cooks at one point but if it's Elvis, you know that's it's going to be insanely good.

The service at this resort was top-notch! There were plenty of waitstaff, bartenders, servers, cleaning and front desk staff. They were constantly cleaning the common areas and practiced all safety protocols (temperature checks, masks requirements, reduced hotel occupancy). There were cleaning staff stationed at the public restrooms, and the restrooms were cleaned/sanitized all day. The resort was fairly quiet after the evening entertainment ended, which was nice.
Our room had a great view, but was a bit too warm. The beds were a little uncomfortable and the pillows needed the be replaced. They were very small and lumpy.
The grounds were absolutely beautiful! We were able to take a lot of great pictures. The food, however, was the so-so. The Jerk Chicken Hut had the best chicken though.
Overall, it was a very pleasant stay just 25 mins from the airport.
