Potiential but Needs Renovation
There were so many mosquitoes inside the room and I got bit up all over my body. The bathroom was not fully cleaned and the toilet didn't work. The refrigerator was old and discussing and there was a big roach inside my room.

Two star hotel
Basically a two star hotel in an all-inclusive setting. Staff were alternatingly great and terrible, many seemed only superficially able to deal with issues. Our biggest upset was regarding a lost and inebriated guest that we attempted to get assistance from the hotel staff for. Not only was the staff exceedingly slow to respond, but upon responding, were very rude and abrasive with the guest. The food was passable the first night, and terrible for the following several evenings. Transportation to and from the resort was sickeningly expensive, for no apparent reason except that they could charge us as much as they wanted. The beach is fantastic, but can be crowded, situated in an apparently significantly windy area, which prevents many ocean oriented activities that are provided by the hotel.
