I liked our vacation but cannot get rid of my thought of 'it could've been better.
I have two kids and decided between shangri la and here. I regret my choice.
Room was large, (I stayed in poolside room) but extremely slippery when wet(consider your pool is two steps away) I had to wipe the floor five times a day before someone in my family knock off and get hurt. It was clean and spacious though. Room was close to kids room which was rather small compared to the size of this resort.
Food was awful. Awful in every restaurant. Extremely salty- and low in quality. I just couldn't hate it more.
Service was not very kind. They did their job but their face showed it all " not gonna get a single tip anyway" it could've been better if they just let us pay the tip.
It was the cheapest and the most disappointing resort experience ever.
One more downside- it is 30 min drive from downtown and in rush hour it takes forever. And taxi driver wouldn't like you going so far-
