It was the first time visiting the resort after we became owners in 2012 and I guess my expectations were kind of high. We were told all the way that this is a 5 star resort, but we experienced just a full 3 star one.
Yes, there was no housekeeping during our 4 nights stay and we had to take the garbage out, but that is not such a big deal. What it did bother me was the fact that the apartment was not updated for 7-8 years as per a staff statement and everything looked old: appliances, mirors, tap fixtures, even the interior design. I pay $1000 per year for maintenance and I expect an updated apartment when I come in once per year. That's all.
P.S. Do not choose an unit close to the ground as the noise of the A/C units is terrible, especially at night if you want to relax on the balcony.
