This luxury resort lived up to its reputation. The lavish property is extremely well maintained and the villas are very spacious. Each morning I woke up to a view of the ocean, as I stayed in the ocean front villa. This all-inclusive resort is supported by an army of staff ready to serve your every need. Every time we lounged by the pool or sat at the ocean front lounge chairs and umbrellas the bartender would bring a bucket with bottled water and offer additional drinks from the bar. We also used the spa/workout room. The massage was very good and the gym is adequate.
Breakfast is generally a large, freshly made buffet with an eggs station and smoothie bar. Lunch is usually a five course meal with a selection of three entrees and dinner is closer to a seven course meal with options for the entrée and possible option for appetizer. You can also place a special request for a meal served at the villa or on the beach. There is also a sundowner where guests come and enjoy evening cocktails and appetizers at another bar location on the grounds.
A light security presence was on the grounds and monitoring the beach front area. The beach dwelling merchants would be nudged to keep moving if they stopped for too long a period to offer goods to people. These merchants were not allowed to walk onto the property and therefore left us alone as we laid in the beachfront chairs.
This resort is also very accommodating as we came in early and had a late departure. There were no issues/additional charges with us using the facilities and receiving meals/drinks as we waited for our room to be ready (we arrived at 10 AM) and we were provided the room until our departure, at 3 PM. Basically, once on the resort grounds, I was treated like royalty.
