I can not say enough for this resort! It started with a warm greeting and continued with a free room upgrade and even an early check-in without giving them any notice of that need. The rooms are clean, comfortable and modern. The views were unbelievable, especially from the restaurant. The only setback was not quite realizing that we would not be able to swim at the resort beach due to it being jellyfish season but seeing how this is a yearly occurrence and pretty standard at the hotels it was not a major concern. Rose in reception was an especially pleasant treat and helped us with anything that we needed.
