Additional expenses

Long wait at the buffet table

Guests also reported that during busy periods, long waiting times in the cue for the buffet could be expected. Some guests also had the impression that the resort was understaffed, or perhaps overly busy, as sometimes they waited for long periods before their order arrived.


Ocean full of seaweed

The beaches are typically pristine and clean, however during certain periods they can become full of seaweed. Guests who encountered this were disappointed that the hotel did not take steps to clean up the beaches.
