Never going back.
Food was always cold, not much variety, our room was very far walking distance from the entertainment, our bed sheets had blood, and there was a problem with communication and our reservations.

Very Good8.0
The check in was confusing even with confirmation number, after that the hotel is very nice and the service good. The buffet is limited and cheap no too many options. The entertainment is boring but gets bearable for the enthusiasm of the crew, the only exception was the circus night, these guys are amazingly great. I had bug bites all over my legs. I showed it to the front desk and I was told to go to the farmacy and buy a some cream, I declined and then I suggested to fumigate the room even though they clean the room up to 3 times a day. They should take down the no smoking sign, because every one smokes when and where they please. I complained to the pool bar about it but the guys were afraid to say anything to the smokers so I did tell them. Over all, our stay there was fine, mostly because the people working there.
