Just returned on Saturday the 11th. Stayed 1 week. First this is a brand new hotel. Very clean. Had an ocean front room beautiful view. Food was not a problem. Nice gym. Drinks could use a little better quality but were fine. I think for the price 1,500 dollars a person including air fare from Philadelphia it was overall worth it. The hotel staff were wonderful. Could not ask for nicer people. I really could not understand all the negative reviews nor could the other three people that I went with. Vacation is what you make it and we had a wonderful time. I did not book the Ritz and knew that going in. I also think the entertainment staff makes a real effort to put on the shows, don't forget these people have been working all day out in that heat and then perform at 9:30 at night in a arena without air conditioning ,in costume. For me a beach vacation is all about the beach and no this was not my favorite but it to was fine. I think the guy who is worried abou the flies has never been to a picnic or an outside BBQ and should take a cruise. If you already have a preconceived negative attitude you can be sure it will ruin your trip. Like I said in the beginning the hotel is new ,some little things to iron out but with their true concern for their guests I am sure they will work on these things.
