We had a great time. About 30 of us got together for our wedding. Great staff. Loved the bike rides into town. Bikes could use some attention though...ha ha. snorkeling down the beach was great...as it is the last resort with lots of green space to the south. The shows were awesome....very high end....vegas worthy. Thanks

We stayed in the Select Club for adults only and truly appreciated the quietness. We stayed in room 9328 which had a wonderful view of the pool and the jungle was out of the door. We...
