I liked the small feel of the resort and walking through the jungle type of environment where the rooms are located. The staff was very good except there seemed to be confusion at the Mexican restaurant. We had the superior room upgrade but were told there was an upcharge to eat there. It got straightened out the next day but I wish we had eaten at the Italian restaurant more as I liked it better.
I only ate at the buffet restaurant for breakfast and I was blacklisted on bacon somehow. I could not for the life of me get any so I had to send my wife up for bacon. She had no problems.
All the wait staff were excellent and very helpful. We tipped, just as I would here, but saw no decline in service for those who didn't.
I would recommend this resort.
