From the outside looking in, this resort appears beautiful. Unfortunately, that was not my experience. Food wise, terrible. For breakfast and lunch your only options are the buffets which have the same lackluster options every single day. For dinner they tout how they have something like a dozen options with actual menus to order from including French, Thai and American...

This may be a long review but I want to make sure I capture everything. 30 members of my family stayed at the hotel for my niece's 16th birthday. Check in went well, although it took a really long time to get us all settled. My husband, and two daughters (12 years & 16 month old) stayed in the room...

It rained continuously for 4 days last week during our trip but our children had the best time. The staff went above and beyond to make sure everyone was entertained. Roycer was the best. He spent hours each day playing sports in the pool with the kids, creating games around pool deck. I don't know how we would have survived...
