Awesome kids club
Last minute trip with my young daughter. I had read some reviews so expectations were low but was pleasantly surprised. My daughter really enjoyed the kids club and the staff there. The service was variable, the first 3 days service was awesome, then the last 2 days the staff seemed disinterested, slow and maybe stressed. Nonetheless we did have an enjoyable stay and would definitely stay again.

Hotel is looking run down. Staff look happy and helpful. Apartment rooms are old but served the purpose of being able to cook you own food. Good location. All anticipated services at this Resort.
