The food was overall disappointing. There were very few healthy, quality vegetarian options. The food felt like cafeteria food, and there was very little variety day to day. You were not allowed to take food out of the "eating" areas.
Rules across the resort were inconsistently enforced. For example, I was chastised for putting my sunglasses on a coffee table, but the following day, a man was sitting on the same coffee table.
The beachfront was gorgeous - sand and water both perfect!
The attitude of the staff across the resort was also strange. Every employee seemed annoyed by everything at all times. They did not seem to want to be doing their jobs at all. Very weird and unwelcoming vibe from all staff.
The checkout process was confusing. The paper left under our door gave incorrect information, and failed to mention other important details.
There was very little entertainment during the day, and the evening entertainment was boring.
