The location is stunning although a little disappointing that our room did not have a view despite being a suite. We chose it because it had a kitchenette which was very useful. With a toddler it makes a big difference. The breakfast had a good choice of food- not a huge amount of hot dishes but plenty for us - cereal, lots of bread, fruit and yogurt etc.
However, what stood out for us were the staff who went out of their way to help and were very patient with a little curious boy!. Dorothy at breakfast became my little boy's favorite friend and Gilbert made sure that the pool was all ready for him to go swimming- which we did every evening. Erik and Mac at the front desk also were very helpful. Unfortunately, I heard that they are going to be doing some renovations and removing the kitchenettes and laid off all the staff. This is unfortunate as the kitchenette was the reason I picked it and the staff would be the reason why we would go back- I guess we won't be going there again:-(
