My friend and I came here in March of 2007 for spring break as college students, HOWEVER, we were looking for something that was NOT "spring breaky" as we really just wanted to unwind while still having the option of going nuts if we wanted. We could not have chosen a better place. First, the resort doesn't allow big groups of people for the specific reason of not wanting to be a party hotel during spring break, but it still attracted a wide range of people (couples, young to old, a few small groups of friends who were there to party, etc.) and we were happy to find that there is a separate side to the hotel for families.
Our room was great, it was kept really clean and we felt secluded yet close to the hotel ammenities. The pool was great, the drinks were great, and the food was great. We went to a few of the specialty restaurants which were quite nice and had really good food. The beach was also pretty great, with a nice lagoon to snorkel in. The water was crystal clear and turquoise blue, it was really nice swimming as the beach was protected by the lagoon. The entire time we were treated really well, the staff was friendly, and it was just a great place to spend a week in the sun.
