I’m not sure what I can say that hasn’t been said. I went to this resort for my 20th anniversary and the staff definitely made it worth our while.

Do not trust this place, CheapCaribbean or anyone else that recommends this resort. It is a true bait and switch. The food is terrible and the rooms are worse than motels. The only positive reviews are coming from VIP members which are people who have paid thousands of dollars to buy into Lifestyle's Vacation Club. The resort puts everyone in...

Starting at the Front Desk---all were rude--unhelpful, at check-in and check-out. Quality of food was fair at best. We had three couples on Holiday. All three min-suites were showing a lot of ware/old looking. TV's were at least 20 years old. We have decided that we will never go back there, we can spend our money somewhere else.
