Just OK...
So this is a dated hotel that has made some attempts to upgrade. Although the AC in the room was good as was our View the hallways and lobby smelled of mold and was over 86 degrees.. For a American traveler it's not comfortable. Locals might think normal. The French and Asian restaurants were good.. it don't drink house red at Waves and Sands place.. made me very sick..... Very Sick. Best spot is 2nd pool by beach and waitresses were attentive and worked hard. Got pulled into a 3 hr travel service presentation which we did not appreciate and was overpriced. Surprised by 4 star rating here as this is a 3 at best.

Worth the money for excellent hotel!
We stayed for three nights. Food was excellent with lots of choices. Waves and Sands was my favourite restaurant. Good and fast service. The air conditioning in the room was a bit noisy and the shower area was a bit too small. Overall it was a very good hotel. Worth the money!

Great beach!
This resort is amazing. Check in was easy with options to upgrade, but I already got a room with ocean view and balcony. My room was right above honeymoon suites and I felt bad for them. Honeymoon suits on the first floor and everybody from above looking directly on them, there is no privacy at all. My room had everything what was in description, everything was in working condition. For women I would just advise to bring your shampoo/conditioner. Theirs just did not work on my long hair and smelled like medicine, but it is a small thing. I have to give a credit to all employees who were cleaning- they were doing a really good job. Few times I witnessed like after check out a guy with a cart would go in a room and do some touch ups with paint, fix smth etc. The bar was restocked every day (soda, water, beer). I was satisfied with food and drinks, never been hangry. My favorite was Sands and waves. French restaurant was ok. Buffet is good. Coco shop were making a great coffee. The beach area is so beautiful. Water is clear and clean, no waves. It is ideal for families with kids especially. This resort, like many others, is suffering from situation when people by 6.30am put their towels on lounges, everybody is trying to get the ones with umbrellas. Another thing that was really a problematic is the fact they stopped enforcing their rules about smoking.People were smoking every where all the time!. It was bad. Entertainment was really good including night performances.
