Here’s what they said 👇

Things we love: 
  1. Other resorts promise luxury, this one delivers!
  2. Excellent all-inclusive wedding packages.
  3. Fabulous residences and villas.
  4. Exceptional service.
  5. Fantastic resort for families – it even has a Family Emotion program.
  6. The spa of course! 
Things we don’t love: 
  1. Not truly a ‘beachfront’ property.
  2. Guests ‘reserving’ chairs and loungers by the pool.
  3. Guests staying for longer find the food repetitive.
It's a pretty unique resort because of the onsite residences/villas. They legit have split levels, bedrooms, full kitchens, patios, etc. - really neat for an all-inclusive.
