Nice resort, with great pools all over the resort. The resort layout made it an easy walk from any location on the resort. The food was very good but lacked desserts big time. But I guess we didn't need them so it was ok! Rooms were nice and big, but our room did not have a

We heard about the foam party but we didn’t see it. Depending on the room number ocean view is a bit of a stretch. Our room was the nicest that we have stayed in yet. It was clean, no leaking faucet , big bathroom and a huge tub. Bedroom only had double beds but the mattresses were comfortable and relatively new.
