Average all inclusive resort with beach access, 3 pools, 2 restaurants, and a buffet room. Reception is very poor. No smiles no warm reception. Don't expect any kind of orientation or explanations. They simply greet you, put on a bracelet and tell you that everything is included and you don't have to pay for anything. No map of the premises either.

The room with 1 queen size bed and 1 twin size futon was quite comfortable. It had a small balcony, AC, and a small fridge. The bedding was clean, but I did notice an insignificant small stain on at least one of the sheets.

The buffet area is very large but can get quite busy and very full. The food selection is quite varied and there is also a grill available. What most bothered me about the buffet was the flies (actually, this is what bothered me the most about my entire stay). For some reason they keep the entrance door wide open and all the flies are roaming free all over the food and at the dining tables. It's quite disturbing.

One thing that reception doesn't tell you is that there are 2 evening restaurants available with reservation only. You don't have to pay anything extra you just need to reserve with a representative in the lobby area. Reserve early because space is limited. One of the restaurants serves seafood the other Italian food. For further insight on these restaurants please see my specific reviews.

The pool area is very nice and appealing. This is a very family oriented resort so there are a lot of children. They also cater strongly to Russian families and couples; you can tell because besides the Spanish and English music, you will also hear some Russian tunes here and there and the lobby has a Russian rep catering specifically to Russian tourists.

The beach area in the back of the resort is fantastic. It's right at the beginning of that strip of beach that stretches for about 2 miles. It's a very picture perfect kind of beach with blue water and very light brown sand, almost white. There is a beach hut that offers free kayaks for a limited time. They also offer free rides in a small sail boat. For 20 CUC you can get a snorkeling excursion. It's a 10min ride in the sail boat to open water where some fish agglomerate. There are a hand full of different fish including small jelly fish (harmless). The fish are not the bright colorful ones. Nonetheless, I would recommend the outing as there are nearly no fish near the beach.

After my experience here, I would not like to repeat it. Mainly because of the flies in the buffet but also because of the lack of hospitality. - September 2016
