We went for a wedding and that was amazing -they did a great job! Our room was nice but the partial ocean view upgrade wasn't worth the $$$ since we couldn't see the water.
The staff were very friendly, worked super hard and were very nice.
Now the bad...
The wedding party and guests arrived on Sunday and by Tuesday at least 20 were sick from the food. I would say 40% of the people got sick from the food. This is unreal in this day and age and horrible to have this happen at a Wedding!!
The food was terrible all the way from breakfast, lunch and to the buffet dinner. We watched them leave bread, granola and many other food items uncovered. Birds ate from it and actually stood in the bowl of granola eating it and flinging it every where. They attempted to cober the bread with napkins but that was only after more people came down for breakfast and to look like they were doing something anout it. We vame down early quite a few mornings to find many items uncovered & the birds having free reign on all food. People unknowingly took bread and granola that birds ate and sat on!!! No wonder so many got sick! The eggs were always under cooked unless you stood and asked for them to be well done. They had bacon and peanut butter but it was hidden and you had to specifically ask for it.
Once you sat down staff were great but you had to deal, during the day, with big brown wasps and birds almost hitting you in the buffet area. At night it was huge bat like moths!! The buffet at most times was unrecognizable food and terrible.
Given the above we found ourselves at lunch eating from the snack stand. Greasy pizza and taco chips/dips were our only good option. Even that at times was questionable as they reused old hot dogs as a pizza topping one day. We also booked the special restaurants at dinner since our whole group of 40+ people could not handle the buffet. The Mediterranean restaurant was great with super service and food. Minus the chicken which was super salty. The Japanese one was not that great and we had under cooked chicken and fish.
Given how bad the food was and the sanitation issues - birds sharing our food and also bugs all over fruit and tomatoes. Plus the groom and others were violently sick!! Thank goodness someone had Imodium for all. We ended up eating dinner at the Westin next door and paying for meals the last night bc we could not eat the food anymore.
I would not recommend this place as no one needs to pay so much money to get so sick on a holiday. If they could clean up their food issues then this would be a top place to stay!!!
