My husband and I loved this resort! The staff were friendly and kept the resort very clean. The food was very good and abundant @ the buffets except the 24 hr sport bar the food was lacking. The only problem we had was that we called room service twice for more pillows & never got them. Yeah the elevators were kind of slow (what do u expect for a resort with 22 floors) but didn't mind using the stairs to & from our room on the 7th floor to burn off a lot of food we ate hahaha! It was awesome for all the guests that ALL rooms face the ocean! We didn't venture too much outside the resort such as doing tours as we just wanted to relax on our vacation. We did although checked out the market, the golden zone where u can find lots of shopping & places to eat & we got to see some cliff divers which was pretty cool! We were told to check out a restaurant called Mr. Lionso down the beach as apparently the coconut shrimp is to die for. I am allergic to nuts so my husband tried it out & he loved it that we ate there twice. Plus it was very cheap! We would definitely stay @ this resort again & check out some tours.
