Everything is top shelf. Lobby and the corridors to the rooms are air conditioned. Lobby looks like those old world hotels with very high ceiling and crystal chandeliers - classy. Check in and check out was a breeze. Food at the buffet was nothing special except when they had the BBQ ribs which was very well done. Usual station for...

We stayed at this resort last July and are going back this year. This will be the first resort that we have stayed at twice! My husband and I are mid-forties with kids age 15 and 8. We are middle-income, country people from the mid-west and our only splurge is traveling. We travel to Mexico and the Caribbean once a...
