    Best international vacation to date! The resort has everything you need. We didn't leave once. The fitness center is very out of date but it was more fun to run around the resort. The area is safe to run around and get at least a mile out. Food is mediocre. The pool, swim up bar, and atmosphere is a lot of fun. The beach looks like paradise!
