What a huge disappointment! To begin with, I specifically requested, and was promised, a full-size crib for my 18-month old. When I checked in at 9:00 pm, I was presented with a play-pen. Apparantely the resort did not have anything else, even though I checked and double-checked when I made the reservation. At 10:30 we discovered that the fold-out couch in our room would not open. Maintenance was called in and said it could not be used. At mid-night, the couch in the room was changed so that everyone might actually have a place to sleep. Additionally, some of the screen doors in the room were broken; the ones that were not, would not lock. The air-conditioner in the bedroom would not cool anything down and no one could sleep in the bedroom. (Temp outside was about 100 degrees at night). Lucky that we had that couch replaced at mid-night.
The swimming pool had broken pieces of tile at the bottom that we discovered with our feet, the resort provided hardly any activities for children, and, to cap off a perfect vacation (we left a day early), the guy at check-out wanted to charge us $2.00 for a receipt! This is one place we will not be revisiting.
