The grounds and setting are very nice. The rooms are not resort like. I had a mini suite and did not even have a mini fridge.
The food at the restaurant was awesome. The service at night was turtle like, the young man seating people was more concerned with his phone than seating hungry patrons. Because the food was so good, we went with it.
As far as checking in, it took hours for our room to finally be clean and ready. The front desk people were great. There were some employees such as the wait staff at night at the retaurant need serious training. They are more concerned talking to each other about their lives than paying attention to their jobs. The restaurant manager needs to do some server training.
For the price, I will find a better destination. Despite all, still had an enjoyable weekend. The lunch waitstaff was on the ball and very friendly.
Hats off the folks at the check in desk, very helpful and friendly. Not a 4 star resort though.
