The rooms are large with gorgeous views—woke up to a rainbow every morning. It was rainy and very windy when we were there so we were only able to snorkel once—poor visibility but there were fish to see. They have free DVD’s to check out. Everyone was friendly and helpful.

My husband enjoys playing the Arnold Palmer course which is more challenging and scenic. The Fazio is short and too easy. Eat at Leis Leis after - great food.

Yes, one of the restaurants does have a buffet. It's really good but it is pricey.
