My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon in July of 2010.
I cannot say enough good things about this resort! Our experience was incredible. I would go back 100 times and not tire of it. This place is a true slice of paradise.
It was amazing! We stayed here for ten days and ate almost every single one of our meals here. The breakfast was incredible. Delicious fruits and hot entrees. Lunch was awesome. We ate at the restaurant on the beach and also ordered room service several times. The food was always completely on point. Dinner was great. Very good options to choose from. The steaks were extremely good. My husband and I are "food people" and we can both agree that this food was really great!
Our room was amazing. We had a full ocean view and could hear the waves crashing loudly every night. The bathroom was huge and luxurious. The bed was comfortable. Everything was immaculately clean.
Everything was in great working order. The walk to the beach was incredibly short, but if you didn't want to walk the golf carts will pick you up in no more than 2 minutes! My husband and I each had two massages, and they were both excellent! The spa was done very well, and the masseuses were excellent. The beach was clean and there were always plenty of towels right there!
Again. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. The staff was always going out of their way to remember special little touches. We plan on making a trip back here again someday. It was perfect.
