Ended up here for 2 nights after our flights to Florida for March Break got canceled. Visited previously 8 years ago - nothing much has changed! Rooms are on the small side but comfortable. Bathrooms are showing their age a bit. Overall the staff are very friendly. All the dining room staff are from Jamaica which is a little bizarre. We found they ranged for having very outgoing personalities to the complete opposite. Breakfast and lunch are buffets - average fare, nothing spectacular. Dinner is from the menu (which was falling to pieces) and was generally good although they seemed to skimp on desserts the last night - my daughter's "medley of ices and ice cream with a cookie" was 2 scoops of vanilla and no cookie. If I'd paid the $8 separately for that I would have been furious. The rating for the resort say it's not great for teens. We have a16 year old and she had a great time, even forsaking the iPod to play board games, ping pong, pool and cross country skiing. We noticed on check-out a few people were quite upset with the 15% service charge that gets added to the bill automatically so be aware with this and tax you're paying 25% more than the basic per person rate. In general it was as we remembered it and we would probably return. Not a cheap getaway though.
