Arrival: Jan 2 2009
We had a morning flight out with Skyservice which was very good... no complaints. We arrived at the resort for 1pm which was nice as we got to enjoy the day. We did however request rooms near the beach and were put at unit 27.. right at the back. We asked to be changed and were given rooms the next day.

The rooms were ok. They did smell a little musty and even when we got home we had trouble getting that smell out of our clothes. The beds werent the best. Ours definitely due for replacement but we still managed to sleep.

Restaurants and Bars:
The main buffets were awesome.. a large variety of food and always hot and very tastey. If anyone complains about the food that have to be very picky because I didnt hear anyone say anything negative about the food. We were a party of 6 with kids and no one got sick.

The grounds were absolutely beautiful and well kept. The resorts are very lush so if you want shade, never a problem finding some. The pool area was a bit crowded but still very nice

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
We didnt go on any tours but there were always activities going on and the team really did work hard to get you involved. We didnt participate as we were with the kids and were busy with them. But if you wanted dance lessons or exercise in the pool to tons of other activities.. they had them

Other Comments:
We didnt us the kids club a lot but it was very good for crafts and activities for the kids. The one day they painted their faces and did a fabulous job. The kids wanted to go back. Every night at 8pm they had a dance party for the kids which they couldnt wait for every evening. All in all was a great vacation and I would recommend this resort to others.
