Worst resort experience ever. DO NOT book here! I travel a lot and have never been so disgusted with a resort before. Not only were the staff slow, they were extremely rude. Check in time is 3pm, we arrived at 4pm and we were told to wait for them to see if they had a room ready. We waited almost...

Our stay was 2/5-2/11. We waited in line around 10 minutes to check in. When asked for a resort map, they had none. Really? This is a huge resort and a map would have been helpful. So, before you go, print your own map. They gave us no information on resort activities or show schedules for the week. That would...
