We stayed here for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Years.
The hotel is beautiful. The lobby is gorgeous, the rooms are clean and the views are amazing.
The staff are very friendly and help you with any questions.
The food is actually not bad but if you stay here for 2 weeks it can really get boring. They put on an amazing dinner for Christmas and new years eve.
The A la carte restaurants were not that impressive. The Italian was just like the regular buffet they serve everyday, the Mexican was meh, the steaks were like rubber. The Japanese restaurant was pretty good.
The bars were good for about the first 2-3 days but after that they can get really boring. They serve garbage booze unless you ASK for name brand. So you would have to ask for SMIRNOFF or they will give you some no name. The Beer on tap seemed to smell strangely so I avoided that after the first few days. i actually went out and bought pacifico.
The entertainment was OK. Most of it is just corny. The Michael Jackson one was good.
OVERALL I recommend this resort. Its beautiful and the surrounding area is amazing. I will come back here for sure.
