This place is beautiful.
Views - Fantastic!
Spa - Incredible! I can't describe how great this is.
Three notes here for improvement:
Better food options / times - The breakfast I had was horrible. I can't sugar coat it.. It was a horrible selection and sub par quality. I have to defend the breakfast, because this was just my observation. Another friend of mine who had been there had a difference food selection and a better experience. If you are hungry between Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner, you are out of luck or not ready to eat at that point, there is nothing around to go out to get either or order in. You can buy at the coffee/beer cafe a cookie, or trail mix and that's it.
Spa times... Here's the kicker.. This is the draw to this place, however they close the spas VERY early and pretty close to their dinner schedule, so it limits your time greatly. You are told you can go use the Spa the next day after check out as well, but they shut down the spa until 1pm if memory serves me correctly so all you have is the pool.
One final note. I was not pleased with. We requested a late check out at 1pm vs. 11am so we could relax in our room and then goto the spa at 1pm. We were told no as the room needed to be prepared for the next guests who check in at 3pm. The resort was essentially empty when we stayed, so there were not many rooms to clean that day. I'm sure there would have been plenty of resources/staff to come in and clean the room between 1-3pm. There were small other service notes I could go on about, this is a 6 star resort with some 3 star service points in some aspects. (Not everyone of course).
