I almost hate to write this because I want to keep this place the hidden gem that it is! I've stayed in places, good and bad, all over the world and this place ranks right up there near the top. Everything, from the staff to the grounds to the beach were spectacular. The rooms, however, were otherworldly. Just over the top. So good that I actually tried to book an extra day but couldn't get the flight changed.
My only reason for not giving it 5 stars was the food. While the breakfasts were great and lunch was delicious they dropped the ball on our dinners. I had to send my surf and turf back and my son was less than thrilled w his filet. They were very apologetic and took my meal off of the bill w out my even asking and the service was great at all meals.
