This is a nice clean hotel that has wonderful staff but anyone who rates this 5 star has not stayed in many places. We have stayed here 4 or 5 times and it suits our need but it needs an updating. Rooms are ok, nothing special. Beds horrible. As others have mentioned the lights are dim in the rooms and bathrooms. I mentioned this in a review a few years ago and I see people are still talking about it so appears that they don't pay too much attention to our reviews. We are on the 3rd floor and the elevator will not stop at our floor so we are forced to walk down 2 flights of dimly lit stairs with no handrail. I really don't understand why they would bother to put people on a floor where the elevator does not work. They never mentioned it at check in although they did offer to change our room. The door to the stairs slams shut each time someone goes down the stairs and it has has been annoying.
Food in the restaurant in OK, nothing special. I would tire of it after a few days if I was doing the all inclusive plan but we venture out to local restaurants. A car is a must.
Hot tub is warm not hot and pool is freezing.
Would I return? Probably but I would hope some updates are made.
