I've stayed here twice in 2011 for a birthday/wedding planning and the actual wedding. Once in mid April for 3 nights and another in late August.
This place is "luxury." I was lucky enough to be part of the wedding family and the room stay was paid for. With that being said, I still spent over $1200 in 4 days. This doesn't include any money won or spent at the casino. If I had not won any money, I could have easily spent over $2500.
After a good night (first night) at the tables, I offered to cover dinner since, hell, they paid for my expensive suite. 6 guests, 2-3 drinks each, and burgers and fries...$750 including gratuity. I cam in to this dinner hoping to exhaust no more than half of my accrued chip stack but ended up going all in and out of pocket.
The following days and nights were basically the same experience with my winnings supporting lunch and dinner. I personally never went below the amount I started with. The dealers (blackjack) were some of the most helpful dealers I've ever met. I wasn't always so inebriated while gambling, but the advice given and chance to reneg my call was always given.
The food was exceptional, but in my opinion, not worth what they've charged. There is a variety of places to eat with TOP CHEFs on the roster (like actual Top Chef or Iron Chef winners/contestants).
The rooms were really something else. Top notch and I really wouldn't expect anything less since it's a younger upscale resort. If I didn't have to get out of bed, I could have laid on that thing forever.
The waterpark was nothing to get too crazy about, but it was still very fun, especially if your lucky enough to have a day without the cruise guests crowing the place. I suggest bringing beach shoes if your stay is in the summer, unless the ground is always that hot, then bring them just in case. Don't miss the mayan pyramid water slide, it shoots you right through the shark tank for a glorious 5 second view.
Again, I suggest only staying at the resort if you have the cash flow to have a good time. To save money on the rooms, I've heard the Marriott or whichever the hotel is right across the street from the resort's gate also gives you access to the casino and waterpark.
