We attended a family wedding that was being held at the resort. The location is beautiful and I had no complaint about my room. The pool area was really nice, and the spa was nice, but small. There are a few cosmetic maintenance issues that give the impression that they are not on top of their game in some things. Customer service was a mixed bag. We got into our rooms immediately, but others in our party had to wait hours to check in. On Friday night, members of the wedding party and several family members gathered on the outdoor patio to have some drinks (about 15 people). The waitress was downright angry that people were ordering drinks...and it was only 9 p.m.! Her hostility was obvious and uncomfortable. On the other hand, the staff who worked the wedding reception on Saturday evening could not have been more accommodating! The staff who handled our group of 25 for breakfast the next day were also wonderful! And the breakfast buffet was very good, too. Our group rate was super, and I would stay here again.
