We just returned from the resort having spent 6 great nights there last week with our 2 kids. C restaurant and staff were wonderful--mahi mahi app. and crème Brule trio were superb by the way. buffet breakfast was perfect--you can even request cappuccinos! yes, it was too bad that we missed out of what is expected to be a great spa and fitness center but the work is slated to be done by june. in the meantime, we used the fitness center (basic dumbbells, 1 bench and a bunch of cardio stuff) so it was enough for a basic workout. i'm no arnold, but the dumbbells only went up to 50 lbs. so hopefully the completed fitness center will have some heavier weight. pool was FREAKING AWESOME--only bad thing was that there were some childless couples and some pregnant lady who kept getting in the way of my kids splashing (see below--ha, ha); sorry folks, this place is unbelievable and totally awesome for young families. bring your kids, splash around in the great pool (it has that 0 degree pool entrance on one side!). the kids' club was great (awesome facilities, sandra who works there is a gem, and they have a wii and flat screen with dvds; they did crafts, etc.) anse marcel is great, just great. great mini-market across from hotel entrance with anything you'll need or may have forgotten (not to mention, great cheeses, wines, baguettes). the cabana/pool/towel staff were so friendly. the grounds were fantastic--kudos to that team as well.
bottom line--as great as everyone says!
