    Is there shuttle service to and from the airport provided by the resort? Or do we need to arrange our own travel to and from the airport?

    Really don't know what to expect as none of our group has been there. Just cant wait for the beach and booze lol. Were mainly wondering about the things to do there like any excursions, how the night life is, Some of the group was asking about american beer if it was included or not and also how good is the food there. Have read some really cool reviews about GP so I know we will have a good time. Were there for 6 nights so any info on what to expect would be great. Thanks

    Wife and I were there in June for 8 nights. Unfortunately we didn’t enjoy it and couldn’t wait to get home. First time that’s ever happened. Entertainment was lacking. Nightlife was dead. Food was bland and we both got sick from it. Guests keep to themselves primarily and don’t really interact with each other unless it was volleyball or something. No swim up bar. I could go on.

    The wait staff was some of the best we have ever experienced though and the beach was the best we’ve ever visited. Wish I could say more positive things, but we ended up doing a lot of off resort stuff as the resort was not very good in our opinion. But different strokes for different folks.

    Make your own party with your group. Have not been in a few years but in our opinion, the food far exceeded other all-inclusive resorts that we have been to. Fun ,, large, hot tub (warm). You will have fun.

    We went in February and had a blast if you find the right people the party is good at night ! Food was awesome we liked everything about it except music could be louder at the bars but we worked through that !

    I have read some older posts and they talk a lot about getting bumped to a different resort is that something we should be concerned about?

    I wouldn’t worry. When we went in June it was maybe half full.
