“We had an awesome time… the good was good, the drinks were good, the free little snack bar, the beautiful views and lovely rooms… I would absolutely come back. The wedding we attended on site was absolutely gorgeous. The spa was AMAZING!” – Angie A. 11/18
“We went for a wedding and the view was amazing. The staff was always helpful and we didn’t have any problems while we were there. The room was nice with a comfortable bed. This being the adult side, it was relaxing if you wanted that and the parties were always awesome. The club was a blast every time. The spa was also amazing. We did a couples recovery and it was to die for. We will be back!” – Richard P. 7/17(Heaven Section)
“The resort is very very nice with friendly staff and good food! The room was very nice but the bathroom is not very private. It has an open feeling with only a bathrooms stall door for the toilet/shower. There is also no direct access to the ocean. The beaches are separated from the ocean with a rock wall. This means you can’t play in the waves, though the man made beaches in the ocean water are still nice. Overall the resort is very nice and I would travel there again.” – Nicholas L. 5/17 (Hacienda Section)
