Traveled June 16-25, the resort was about 2 hours away from the airport but the scenery was great along the way to the resort and the driver was very friendly both ways.
The resort was beautiful and was spread out with alot of walking. We enjoyed all of the walking though bc we aren't so much from all of the great food. The rooms are a lil old and out dated but very clean and we didnt stay in the rooms that much, but they are being redone very soon. We stayed in the beach front ocean view room on the second floor overlooking the pool and had a great view of the ocean.
The pools were very nice with 3 different ones to choose from. There were some hidden hot tubs around the resort so make sure you check those out.
The restaurants were all very good and we made reservations the night before and had no trouble getting into all of them.
We will be back very soon. The staff was the greatest that we have ever had at an all-inclusive resort. Everything was amazing. More

It was great mon
It was our first holiday in years and we loved it. We had asked for an upgrade to a suite which we got but it turned out by accident. It was ok and free (because they had not reacted to my email) so easy to disregard the downsides.
The good news was also we were as far from the main activities as possible so no noise bit even better - some exercise too walk off the vast amounts of food.
Talking of food it was very good but lacked the quality of a certain French chain, but then it was full of Americans - great people, good company but perhaps not gourmets.
The staff was fantastic - what can I say. The facilities were immaculate. We loved it!More
Beautiful, relaxing honeymoon!
My husband and i booked at a special rate right around New Year's for our June honeymoon. As soon as you arrive, you are greeted with top notch service from a very friendly staff! The grounds are gorgeous, and you're free to do as much or as little as you'd like in a beautiful setting. The beach, while not the whitest sand or crystal clear water, is pretty and very secluded between coconut groves.
If our room were a bit nicer, it'd be a 5 star review. They're currently renovating suites and just didn't get to ours yet. Americans: it will be warmer than you're used to. We had a wall unit in the bedroom for air conditioning. We cooled off by shutting the bedroom doors and cranking down the thermostat! :) Beautiful beach view suite otherwise in the A block, with mini bar at the front and a little hall past the bedroom to a sitting room.

We stayed for 10 nights in January in a sea view suites up near the lobby. Though large, they were very tired, especially the bathroom 2 star, and the standard of finishing was not really up to that of a 4/5 star resort.Our friends stayed in the standard rooms which was a lot better. The grounds / beach areas are very beautiful: the hotel is multi-tiered, the lobby at the pinnacle overlooking the rainforest descending to the sea, there are a variety of paths winding there way down through the trees to the lower tier with the main beach, swimming pool and restaurants, a freshwater lake, and private naturel section. All the water sports are free, sailling, water skiing, and diving etc, the guys at the sport centre all very helpfull. The food was just above average, would have been better at all the restaurants if the food was HOT. I took my partner to the Jamaica Inn for dinner one night and the service and food was too a very high standard, which made the San Souci service and food seam very average.
The San Souci Couples hotel is very good value, but it just makes a 4 star hotel.More
The resort was very clean and the employees were very friendly. The lush vegitation made for a very relazing atmosphere. I enjoyed the Mineral Pool and the Spa. The massage I receive at the spa was excellent! I suggest you try it out. I stayed in a beach front suite and loved it's location - close to almost everything! Tried out the Nude pool and beach - had a great time and met a lot of great people. We are planning our return trip!More
