This hotel sits on well maintained green sprawling grounds with beaches and pool areas. There are several restaurants and bars including a buffet where the majority of guests eat since it is usually included with the room. The food is very good but the very large main dining room is noisey from crying children, it's a family oriented hotel. The... More
