Travelors beware! Just returned and was so turned off by this once-famed resort that I would warn anyone not to go until it has been redone. Some of the low points are highlighted first by the large dead rat laying in the pool area by the waterslide and kids camp doors that was not removed until the next day after we reported it! Yep! It was reported at 4 pm to the "towel girl" (who was the only person we could find at the time) and while she did put her personal cell phone call on hold for a moment, and did acknowledge our dead rat report, nothing was done by 11am the next day when we returned! Unbelieveable!!! There is garbage floating in the lagoon surrounding the pool area and bridges. The chairs around the pool are so old that the straps seperate and sag, the towels literally are like old garage towels that have been washed so many times that they are all stringy and paper thin! There is exposed nails around old wooden frames around every planter in the pool area...very dangerous for the throngs of kids. Pool was visably dirty. The idea that this "resort" is still rated a 5 star is a complete misrepresentation to travelers, and unless you can get a rate for under a 75 bucks stay away! The main golf course is closed and they don't tell you that up front...there are other courses and some nice new ones, but the trade-off is very questionable. I guess large groups of golfers going only for the courses won't be as bothered, but clean is clean...service is service...and value is value...you decide.
