    DO NOT COME HERE. Hordes of horny men who do not respect the opposite sex. A convention was held with rural Mexicans that have never seen a woman. They made every woman uncomfortable to the point that the staff has had to separate that group to going to one bar. Besides that, every pool is a thousand degrees and at times felt like everyone was going to pass out from heat stroke. Pools smell and ARE NOT CLEANED. VERY SLIPPERY AND SLIMEY. Food is subpar and lacks seasoning and pride. Drinks are widely inconsistent at every bar. Everyone will hound you to become a member of their “star prestige/exclusive member” where they stick you in a presentation for 2 hours and then ask for $20,000 down payment. AT EVERY CHANCE THEY WILL TRY TO UP CHARGE AND NICKEL & DIME YOU. The staff is nice but lacks conversational English (not a deal breaker but I didn’t see that in any other review)

    Food was great. Staff were amazing, loved Emily and Sergio! The pools were nice and the people were energetic. The beach was pretty and the drinks were good as well. There are lots of activities to do just look out for them on the screens of the lobby or ask the staff.

    A must visit

    The place exceeded my expectations. The food was incredible and local was perfect to get to anything in the area you might want to do. Staff was friendly, especially Emily who was in charge of entertainment while we were there. She provided a wide range of fun activities ranging from Karaoke to bingo. Well worth the price and a must visit.
