Impeccable service! Malsha was the best host ever and was available from start to finish. I felt like I had a friend with me even though I was a solo traveler.

It’s an average resort and no one at the resort had heard of Expedia which makes me suspect of how they got their VIP status and it shows. The description has been update but ALL INCLUSIVE IS NOT ALL INCLUSIVE. Further to that Expedia agents will describe full board as being all inclusive so be weary of what they advertise. Because of the system they have come up with for eating you have 1 (one) of the 5 restaurants that you can eat at and a clerical error left me not being able eat for the first 24hours that I was there. This was quickly dismissed by staff and them saying “nothing we can do now”. There was good variety with the food but it wasn’t good. Just to give you an idea, the hollandaise sauce on the eggs Benedict is mayonnaise. I got it twice just to make sure that was what was happening. Overall, it’s fine. I live a 4 hour flight away but if I was any further I would have been very upset that I paid as much as I did for what you get. The struggle with the hotel and the yelling from Expedia agents meant that I left early. It wasn’t worth it and I could do it but chose wisely if you’re taking a long flight. Also, there were mostly families there just in case that is something you are considering.
