I am being generous with 4 stars - although this could easily be a 5 star resort. It has the great facilities, grounds and rooms to be 5 star, but little things keep going wrong.
The room door wouldn't open, the next day it wouldn't close. The bedroom air conditioning didn't work, the TV went off every time you shut off the closet light. The newspaper wasn't delivered, the bill was incorrect. Each item was fixed quickly - but that's too many things for a 3 night stay. Because we weren't able to check in when we arrived (an hour and a half before official check in time) we were upgraded to a huge suite which may have been part of the problem. A standard (but still good size) room may not have so many things that could go wrong. A little fine tuning would go a long way.
Food was very good. Cascata had an excellent breakfast buffet. Unfortunately, we couldn't have dinner there as it closed for emergency repairs the night we went. The poolside service and food was good. Bourbon Steak was also excellent, but the reviews describing it as very expensive are correct.
I don't play golf, but the golf course looked great. I wish I could say the same for the beach club. It really needs to be upgraded from a 3 star to a 5 star facility. The pools back at the resort were so nice that I didn't really care about using the beach club anyway.
