I gave this vacation to my family for Christmas, and it was just the break we needed. The management and staff went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. Our nanny, LaToya, was a delight and my 4 year old granddaughter loved her. Food was plentiful and well-prepared, with variety for everyone. We realized by the size of the property and the advertising that we weren't going to get 6 star food, but we all found something we liked at each meal. The entertainment staff - Curtis and Kervan - kept us all busy and laughing. Donavan - the personal trainer and fitness director (or should I say pain-inducer?) kept us active w/ aquacize and gym time. Entertainment was family centered, so not for young singles or newlyweds probably, but we all enjoyed it.
I will return, and recommend the resort to my friends. It's perfect for a 3 generation trip - grandparents, kids and grandkids, or a family w/ kids and the parents want some time to themselves. Lots to keep all happy, and the safety of a nanny keeping your little ones entertained and happy is a big plus.
