We were here for one night at a conference. It's important to understand what this place is and more importantly what it isn't. It is a resort but not like a Ritz or Four Seasons. The rooms are nice but more Hilton than Ritz. It was built as a corporate retreat before being converted to a resort. Service is excellent.
RCL is about all things outdoors, especially shooting sports whether it's hunting, trap or skeet. In good weather (and especially summer) there are many other activities. There is a spa but it is only a day spa and not a full service one with steam rooms, saunas or whirlpools. The restaurant was good but not great. I was really surprised by the poor selections of wines by the glass at the bar. This is more a "Bourbon and Branch" kind of place.
The main issue I had was cost vs. value proposition. It is very expensive and not all of the activities are included in the price. Many have additional costs. If you can use all the facilities and have the disposable income, then this place may be for you. Still given the price, I was expecting much more.
