I bought the deal for Crown Suites on groupon and while the rooms were average they were so worth the money I paid .. It was an apartment style room with a big terrace and lots of sunshine in the morning. The staff was super friendly and I was impressed with how large the whole resort is yet everything is... More

We had a great time some of my friends booked earlier and paid under 600 for the trip, I paid about 800 bucks. Airfare was included. We were picked up by a shuttle and did not have to wait around. Staff were... More

We stayed Jan. 21 to Jan. 26th. and had a great time. Room was in 3rd building, very quiet. Grounds are well kept, pools are clean, facilities - even the pool side bathrooms - very well kept. Buffet was good, typical foods included pasta bar, pizza, chicken, pork, lamb, seafood. Not a lot of beef, but good local dishes too,... More
