Surprisingly tasteful Spanish themed resort. The rooms are huge with very ample lighting. Good beds and walk in closet. Balcony and a large bathroom with window and soaking tub and dressing table. Air conditioning could be a bit stronger. Only problem the shade in the bathroom can't go all the way down because the bathtub pedastal tap blocks it so light comes in when you are sleeping. They need to give some extra pillows because the ones provided are very soft. Also an extra bath towel would help since it is a resort. Housekeeping is quick to respond though so ask for what you need.
The attractive pool is large and free form with a pirate ship and sandy beach and swim up bar. They are stingy with the towels in the pool area - only 2 per room. Strange policy. There is also a reproduction of the Chritsopher Columbus ship Santa Maria on the 3rd floor which is a bar and restaurant.
F&B needs improvement. The restaurants are expensive by Chinese standards but they are so packed that there may not be much incentive to improve. The buffet was overpriced had bad main courses but good desserts. The Chinese restaurant had good duck with pancake but the other dishes were so so. The Coriander restaurant had some good dishes especially appetizers. There is a high end Brazilian and French restaurant.
Overall liked the resort atmosphere. Service is prompt and efficient. Just the restaurants need improvement and they need to be more liberal with towels in the pool area and rooms.
