Just back from the Excellence, happy to answer any questions

We had a great 25th anniversary vacation.

I am busy catching up at home and work, but will be posting my review and pictures in a week or so.

Happy to answer any questions you may have!

We really enjoy seafood and I would have to say we loved the Lobster House!! We actually ate there twice. The first night we had a GatoNegro cabernet we loved!! However when we went a few nights later they said they were all out.

Followed closely by the French restaurant, whose name is escaping me at the moment.

I also think the Lobster House for breakfast is one of the resorts best kept secrets!

Chez Isabelle is the name of the French restaurant. They had a nice pate when I was there last, and I really liked the steak tartar with quail egg.

The rooms were nice!

Our room 14007 was a bit musty and it was a challenge to get the incense to stay lit most days. Our friends room 11105 was not musty at all.

I would have preferred a smaller sink and more counter space.

The tub was huge, but we never used it.

Beds were firm, but sleeping was not much of a problem.

Flat screen TV was nice, I think we turned it on once. We don't tend to spend much time in the room at all when we vacation.

The rooms were very clean.

We found turndown service to be inconsistent, chocolates on our pillow only 1x in 6 night, skipped over all together on 2 nights.

Also 14 is at the edge of the property and we could always hear dogs barking at night.

Ground floor rooms tend to be musty.

LOL

Less breeze, but the dampness still gets in. Also more bugs, etc. I always ask for 2nd floor or above at any resort. Not to mention that it's harder for thieves to get into higher floors.
