8.0 Very good
Pros:That resort is beach front and it's all inclusive
H
8.0 Very good
Pros:Other than the below two items there was really noting to complain about!
Cons:Because all of the room's interior (as well as the exterior) is white, all of the not so cleaned spots are easily visible- especially in the bathrooms.... So more attention should be paid to these areas of a room. Pool with Pool Bar - well, water is pretty dirty a after the day and not really inviting. Filtration should be way longer and at a much higher rate. Advise from pool owner to pool owner ;-)

2.0 Poor
Pros:Nothing
Cons:Staff very rude, food was really bad. Everything was crowed the bar was full of very cheap liquor. Restaurants were alway close and to get reservation was impossible. Wine was undrinkible
