          We are looking at staying at the resort in July, as a splurge for our honeymoon. Hoping someone can offer a sense of costs at the resort for meals and drinks (i.e. average dinner, etc). It would be helpful to know if we need to, say, budget 25% beyond the cost of the room for these aspects. Second question: if you had to choose between the springs and the resort side, irrespective of room types and the adults-only aspect, which side offers a better selection of amenities (restaurants, pools, bars, etc). I get that we would have access to everything, but proximity has to be worth something. Thanks for any and all input.
