Went down with my wife for a belated honeymoon (7 months in) and had a wonderful time here. The resort is excellent, the food at the a-la-carte restaurants is fantastic as well.
Buffets were found to be a bit lacking in taste and choices in the food, but for breakfast they worked.
The resort is about 20 years old, and you can tell that they haven't done too much updated/modernizing of the resort since then, but it is still is in really good, clean, condition, just not state-of-the-art modern. The Honeymoon suite was great, newly renovated bathroom, although the "hot" water was barely warm enough to shower in.
Staff were friendly, although I found they didn't seem to appreciate tips, and regardless of if you tipped or not, you got the same service. Leaving $$$ in the mini-fridge never resulted in more beverages, which was 2 cokes, 2 sprites, and 2 beers, plus 2 bottles of water per day.
Won't likely go back, since there are just numerous options for other resorts down the road. A nice stay, enjoyed myself, and would recommend it to friends - just don't expect a 5-star resort, 4-star is appropriate in this case.
