When it says all inclusive it was truly all inclusive, you could book a trip to this hotel, and not spend another dime the entire trip if you wanted. One of the best resorts I've ever stayed in.
The pool closed at 7pm daily, which was very strange to me, I've never stayed anywhere that the pool closed so early every night, and most resorts let their pool stay open 24 hours. And due to the alcohol being free there isn't a huge selection of brands to choose from, but it was still a great place.
nice pool, location & easy access to the beach
