We've been to this resort 7 times & each time had a lovely vacation. Once we ran into the students from Ontario, and it wasn't so good. We made sure to go back before the students on our other trips. Our last visit was the end of Feb 2012, for 2 weeks. We had a good time again. We stayed in the Diamond section. Yes, the rooms are aging, but what do you expect. Our first room was on the first floor, we had recommended a second floor. We had no trouble changing the next day. We had a slight problem with ants, but we had repellant & that took care of that problem.The room was cleaned daily.
The food was & has always been excellent. The buffets as well as the a la cartes.
The beach is abit rough looking, but understandable, on the ocean. The resort has really done alot to improve the erosion that was happening.
The service has always been excellent. If you treat people with respect, you'll get respect in return.
We have always enjoyed this resort & plan on going for our 8th time in Feb/Mar 2013, for another 2 weeks.
As for the distance from the airport, we enjoy seeing the countryside, and it was known from the first time of the distance.
