This property was updated around 2010 and is still in great shape. The rooms are all very comfortable and have all the amenities. This was my second stay. I took my wife here for a long weekend this time-round. The pool area is fabulous. If you want to sit in sun or shade you can find either. Lots of palms around the pool provide shade. Tiki bar with tap beer is at hand, and wait staff at the pool is great. The staff at the front desk is also great. The valets and bellmen are great. The concierge service is great. The women that clean the rooms are great. So what's not to like? I'll tell you what's not to like. Elements The Bistro is not to like. The first day there we had the breakfast buffet. Eighteen dollars for concrete eggs and bargain basement sausage links. After we finished eating several containers of yogurt, which seemed like the only thing which wasn't ruined, our waiter said. "If you want special eggs or bacon let me know and I'll ask the chef." I said to him; "That would have been nice to know fifteen minutes ago, why didn't you tell us then before we loaded up on yogurt and melon?"
Well, on day three we were at the pool and decided to order a burger and fries. BIG MISTAKE. We checked out late and went shopping, which was interrupted by severe gas, heartburn and wrenching abdominal agony. I haven't gotten that sick on hotel food since I was in Taiwan twenty five years ago. I literally thought I was going to forego my flight and go to the hospital instead. It's about 36 hours later and I'm still spitting acid and burping. I've eaten about fifty tums and taken a half dozen Zantac and I'm still reeling. I am not kidding, I haven't felt that bad in years. The health inspector needs to shut that kitchen down ASAP. It is a hazard to human life.
So, in summary, go for pool, the rooms, the location, the beach, the shopping, and the service, BUT STAY AWAY FROM THEIR RESTAURANT !!!!!!!
