The rooms alone were amazing. The Heavenly bed felt like heaven! There were a few different types of restuarants to satisfy anyone. The staff was amazing! The shuttle driver gave us his number to use at anytime and took us anywhere we wanted to go, even places further than they were suppose to travel. Great hotel. They went above and beyond my expectations.
