This was our second visit, 2 years in a row, it was as good if not better than last year. The beach, the pools, the rooms are all fantastic. Pretty typical AI food, wasn't impressed with the French, but the Hibatchi tables at Gingers and the Indonesian (Taman Sari) were excellent. The steak house is always a safe bet. Didn't go back to the Italian as we weren't ultra impressed last year. The buffets are good but we tended to go to the cook to order stations instead of eating the items under the warmers.
We met some really nice people while we were there, had lots of fun on Valentine's Day evening with 2 couples in particular. We ran them out of Don Julio Tequila!!! Top shelf liquors upon request, another couple counted 52 bottles behind the swim up bar, so just ask for what you want.
Considering returning in November for our 15th anniversary. Can't go wrong with the VIM!
