The hotel was great the staff really cannot do any more to make you relax and enjoy the holiday experience. Food was really of a very high standard and there was plenty to... More

The resort is very quiet but that was what I wanted. I didn't go out at night but I did go out shopping on what they call 5th ave and... More
