Very nice resort. No a/c in dinning areas makes for some uncomfortable dinners, but overall a nice experience. Stay away from the Garden Cafe (not very good). Don Pablo restaurant is excellent.The pillows on the beds are not good, but still worth going to this hotel.

I would recommend this hotel for a family or couple's holiday. My only complaint is that we should not be charged for a safe in our bedroom. Also the grill restaurant was not great; not authentic enough and closed too early.

At firs the checking was long but that was due to the amount of people checking in and out. Once that was over it was blast service, food..one might expect some level of inconsistency with such a large resort but that's not the case. It was a great Easter weekend...already looking at next year...
