We had heard that it was a wonderful place to spend the evening. It being our 1 year anniversary, my husband and I wanted to experience something unique. We reserved the junior suite for one evening. Nearly $300 later (a resort and an "occupancy tax" included), we were disappointed with our choice. The room was nicely decorated, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom had a lovely tub. Why were we disappointed? The kitchen had a dripping vent that we noticed while standing in the small kitchen. The space of the kitchen and the constant dripping made it nearly impossible to use half the kitchen where the vent was located. We decided to go for a swim. To our dismay the crowd in the pool area were making "animal calls" to their friends who were calling back at them from their hotel rooms. Not what we expected/have experienced when staying at a resort. Not relaxing for us so we went for a stroll to explore the "shops" we told of when we checked in. What shops? There were 2 shops and 1 was empty, as in no assistant present. The lunch by the pool was pleasant, but nothing we could not have ordered at the local food court. The dinner at The Fountain Restaurant, the resort's restaurant, was also disappointing. My husband ordered the Prime Rib, medium well, and received it rare. The next morning we had breakfast in the same restaurant (continental). The only thing that seemed fresh on the buffet table was the pineapple. Just overall, not what we had expected. We do not plan to return.
