My husband and I decided to go to this resort for our honeymoon. The weather was horrible the week we were there. We still managed to have fun. It was a great vacation just wish they had a better night life. Food was awesome!

overall it was good experience, however for the 1st 2 days they were always after us to go to presentation. Rooms were clean, howvever fridge was understocked with beer. Hated that there wasn't a bar open later than 5 in our area. We would always have to take shuttle.

All in all - we had a good time. There were 9 family members and we had 3 2-bedroom units. The food was good, the pools were nice and the bars at the pools were very accommodating.
