My husband and I spent a long weekend away from the kids here May 3rd-6th 2013.
The place was beautiful. It was VERY clean!The food was OK. The 1 thing that was odd was this weird musty smell on the ground floor rooms as well as in the theater, but i think i must have got use to it cause it didnt bother me after a couple days. It was not very crowded but there were never any pool chairs available even when we were down by 10 am. i did enjoy the quit pool the best, there was never more than 2-3 other people swimming in there with us. the hot tubs were hit or miss, only 1 out of like 6 were ever really hot, but its hot there so i didnt mind as i enjoy the pool better. this is a great place for anyone who enjoys seafood (which i dont care for) they serve so much at every meal. We only ate at Tony's and it was GREAT! the buffett for lunch was good but i could see how it would get old if you are there for a week or 2 as they serve the same thing over and over. The dinner buffett was good one day and the next i didnt like ANYTHING that was served (they do some sort of theme for dinner buffetts) but at least you can order room service. the breakfast was good and if you sit outside in the morning you will get up close with the little Coati's (i think thats how its spelled) as they are like little bandits! be carefull if your out at night as the misquitos got me good! the butler service is kind of a joke as we only seen ey we arrived and we had a problem with our hot water and the girls at the service desk helped us out with all of our needs while we were there. the resort and complex is big so bring walking shoes. we took a golf cart ride to the little shopping center there and on the way back the battery died so we had to walk.. which was fine but the other couple on the cart were older and i thought they should have called to have them picked up by someone as it is at the bottom of the hill and they seemed tired already.
All and all i had a great time and wish we had more time to spen there and would go back again!
