I read the reviews before going to the resort and i expected the worse but it was actually such an amazing place. It is a very large and beautiful resort. When everyone was saying the hills were steep i thought they were just over reacting but they are actually very steep. I didn't mind this too much because it was a good work out. I went with a group of 25 people with the age group 20+.
The food was so good! The buffet had pancakes, eggs, french toast, fruit and everything possible. Lunch had steak, salad, fruit, veggies, pasta and more. There is a snack bar beside the buffet which always serves pizza, fries, burgers, hotdogs, onion rings and such. This was amazing for at night as it is open till 1am.
The disco had every song possible and the dj played anything you wanted. Because this resort is mostly people 40+ the disco wasn't always busy.
The drinks are very good here and they have pretty much anything you ask for. The bartenders are very nice and creative with shots. Make sure you bring sun screen because everyone got burnt, even wearing 60 sun screen. The beach is normally not busy at all because the sand is way to hot to walk on. The people who entertain everyone during the day like stanley, eddie and such are very nice and fun too.
You get two small bottles of water the first day and they have water jug stations every where to fill up. When i first got to my room i had no shower head in my shower but i think it worked better without it. A/C worked great and always got new towels. I did not use my safe at all and no money was taken from anyone in our group. The maids did not make anything cool with our towels no matter how much we tipped or left for her but that wasn't for everyone there. I was in building 6 level 3 and had an amazing view from my room.
I HIGHLY recommend doing the zip lining because it was the best experience of my life.It takes a hour to get to the place but it was well worth it. It was very scary at first but if you are scared a guide will go with you. The zip lining include zip lining, going down a huge water slide, lunch, horse back riding and the hot springs. We also did the sunset cruise and it was worth it because of the amazing pictures.
The lobby of the resort has free wifi but everywhere else you have to pay for it. I don't have anything bad to say about this resort at all. I have been traveling down south for about 5 years now and i think this was the best resort i have been to, besides the hills. I hope this helps anyone thinking about going to this resort.
