so I ready a lot of the reviews before booking this trip. I had no choice but to stay here as it was where my friends wedding was, but I wanted to take time to dispel some of the negative reviews. First, the food. It is fine, not 5 stars in Nappa Valley, Not two stars at the local Dennys. Keep in mind that many of the fruits and veggies you are used to aren't indigenious (sp?) here so most of it has to be barged in so you sacrifice freshness, thereby sacrificing flavor. AND its an all inclusive, not a gourmet all inclusive, just a regular one that only promises food anytime you want it at no additional cost. The fun isn't that you get a meal you wouldnt normally get at home, its that you dont have to make it and you dont have to think of the cost. That said, the Jerk Chicken cart is awesome.
Second the staff. They were, for the most part, phenominal. There are hundreds of people that work here, and I am sure that a couple of them have built up a resentment for watching a bunch of predominantly white people enjoy a level of lifestyle that may seem out of bounds for them. So I think its fair to give a pass if you run into a couple rude employees. Also, it can take awhile to get a drink sometimes at some bars. But as a man that drinks his fair share I can say that about literraly every place that serves alcohol in the entire USA. Calm down and be patient. I was tipsy the whole time so it couldnt have been that bad.
Last, yes the site says that you dont have to tip, but it goes a long way. The only people that complain about this should not be aloud to leave Arkansas.
This place was beautiful, friendly, and I would come here again without question. There was a guy that was exceptional about helping keep our mini fridge stocked I think his name was Damon Clark or something to that effect. Thank you to the staff for making this such a wonderful trip.
