5 Star Pricing, 4 Star Experience

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by a traveler from Travelocity.com on March 1, 2010

Just returned yesterday and will recap my thoughts on this resort experience for others benefit. First, let me say that I travel extensively and can compare this resort to others that I have stayed. Hope below helps you decide. Positives: > Good food at the available restaurants. Presentation and quality good. Atmosphere good. > The beach grill is open all night for great late night snacks/meals. > Friendly staff. > Didn't have a chance to snorkel this trip, but conversations with those who did enjoyed it. > Plenty of beach chairs available. However, you have to like the beach as opposed to the pool. More below. > Weather was great. Negatives: > The first you will encounter is the long, slow ride from the airport. Minimum a 1hr 20min ride. > Restaurants- sometimes a lenghty wait. > As mentioned above, pleny of beach chairs, but have love the beach. Unfortunately the beach is quite small and if you are a beach walker, not much fun. The ocean tides have washed a lot of beach away or maybe the tides are up. > If you like the pool (like me and my wife), be prepared to reserve chairs with conceirce or butler service (as many newlyweds do). The main pool deck and pool itself is not large, but there are 3 others on the property. Although all pools are smallish. > We had a beach front grand lux room. I've had larger rooms in Super 8's. I expect more when I spend this much and have in other places. Didn't get hand towels one day. Didn't get a new package of coffee in the room. No booze in room refrig. All small things but they added up. A fun trip, but a little disappointing.
