My husband and I stayed here from 9/30-10/4 to celebrate our birthdays. We had the most amazing vacation! If you want to go somewhere where you do not have to do anything but relax and be waited on, this is the place for you. The beach was wonderful - water was warm, and the staff waits on you hand and foot. The food was absolutely wonderful. The only gripe I had about the food was the room service breakfast that we ordered the day we were leaving. They delivered eggs sunny-side up without any kind of bread to eat it with, the fruit wasn't ripe. Other than that, the food was great. It was nice not to have to make reservations either.
The nightly entertainment was no joke. The Michael Jackson tribute show was awesome. I really thought I was watching him. The circus show was also excellent.
Overall, the one thing that was disappointing was that when we first checked in, the front desk staff pressured us into upgrading to the "Excellence Club". We ended up doing it, which got us access to a private beach, access to the Excellence Club where you can watch TV, eat and get top shelf liquor. However they were also supposed to deliver things to our room daily such as a newspaper, fruit, petit fours, etc. The following day none of these things arrived and we had to ask for it. Finally after asking these things were delivered. I really felt that we shouldn't have had to ask once we paid extra. This is why I gave the resort 4 stars instead of 5.
A quick shout out to the Zumba instructors - I had never taken a Zumba class before and decided to try the Aqua Zumba class for 1/2 hour - had so much fun and what a great workout!
