Good for a short stay.
Nice resort, food was really good and it was clean. Stayed 4 nights, no room clean or bed made. Initially given a room with a terrible outside view of noisy construction that went on till 10pm. Next day gave us a nice room with a view, but we had to check out and then back in, so from 10-2:30 we had no room to do to and no access to our luggage. Nightly entertainment seems more geared for kids.

Fun but concerning
There was fun music playing during the day. Very loud at night depending on where your room is located. The waves were crazy high so you can't swim there but it was beautiful to watch. The first day we arrived, there were baby turtles just hatching and making their way to the ocean, it was amazing and a bucket list to see. One of the restaurants visited served me dishes that i specifically said i was allergic to. The scary part was that when i looked at the dessert, i said this is not what i ordered and reiterated that I'm allergic to nuts. It looked like the praline cake and i ordered the mint chocolate mousse. The server was adamant that it was the mousse. She brought the menu over and i pointed again to the mousse and she finally understood. She looked annoyed and finally took it away. She did eventually bring the right dessert. Other than this incident, the food was just ok. There were lots of options but the taste was underwhelming. Our toilet broke, air conditioner stopped working and there was no cold water so the shower was scalding hot. If it weren't for the amazing company i was with, this would have been a less than satisfactory trip. I do want to say that a lady at breakfast was awesome. I think her name was Jazmin.
