I stayed here for 3 nights in July and was very impressed by the property, staff, grounds, and beach.
Location- Very good, smack in the middle of the hotel zone. Next to other luxury properties like Secrets the Vine and Ritz Carlton
Rooms- very spacious and the balcony view is fantastic because you get to see the ocean and the lagoon side. This used to be Le Meridian hotel so the rooms are very comfortable
Food- Great variety from molecular gastronomy, asian teppenyaki, to mexican and meditteranean inspired buffets. I really liked that the service style at the buffet was a mixture of buffet pans and small plates (like tapas style). Beach bbq was always yummy.
Staff- FANTASTIC! I was inside the swimming pool and a waiter brought me freshly sliced watermelon. The next day, they passed around tacos. I never had to go to the bar to get a drink while laying on the beach. There was always a friendly staff member to take my order. The activities staff is are very social.
Grounds- The 3 pools were spacious and relaxing and each were a different temperature. The only downside was that during the time of year I was there, all three pools were very warm. But if you really want to cool down, you just go into the cooler ocean.
Activities- I loved the morning yoga classes with Becky. One day, the spa was giving free chair massages poolside.
Beach- Beautiful, but watch out for the undertow. It can be strong.
Tips- If you want a shady pool or beach spot (under an umbrella, beach bed, or cabana), you must get there early. I would be down there by 6:30am and a lot of the prime locations were already taken.
Also, WIFI is included!!!! All in all- a wonderful property and highly recommended
