In July 2008, my family spent seven nights at this resort. It started off all wrong. We booked a two bedroom condo and were checked into a one-room efficiency. An efficiency that was occupied by two people. Imagine their surprise when our key card opened the door.
Next we were booked into a two-bedroom condo that was occupied also!
Next we were booked into a two bedroom condo with a view of the roof. We were moved to another condo the next day that was okay.
Later in the week my husband went to the bar to get a drink and was called a [--] by a guest. Of course it was whispered from a balcony and not said to his face. In the evening, lots of guests sit around the pool drinking beer. Frankly, it's hard to tell who's wearing the bra in the family - the men or the women. This is not a family resort if you have young kids.
The only good things I can say is the condo worked with us on giving us a discount, and when the kids got separated from us one night they kept a sharp eye on them.
Because of the racial situation and the drinking, however, I would not go back there.
Research carefully before visiting here.
