1st, I didn't like the fact that the hotel caters to a lot of locals. Only because I miss meeting new people who are also on vacation. The locals seem to be in groups which can make you feel like an outsider. I don't think its because they are not friendly, just don't speak the my language. I also found out from people staying at other resorts they had the same issue. Maybe its a PVR thing!
STAFF- is friendly! Ive been lucky to always have stayed in resorts where the staff is friendly.
FOOD- I want to say that when the resort cleared out of the locals, food got better.
DRINKS- Again got better when they did not have a full hotel to service. At first I couldn't drink them, they were very tart and made from some type powered drink mix which gave me bad indigestion. They do have Corona's but only on tap!
I haven't stayed in a resort in a long time. I have been renting condo's. I ate breakfast and lunch at the resort but mostly went out to dinner downtown. I am happy that I did stay at a resort, because now I have no reason to think I am missing anything by renting condo's!
My stay was Wednesday May 29 - Wednesday June 5. The best days for me was Monday and Tuesday.
