From start to finish an excellent vacation. The resort is beautiful, well layed out and very clean. The staff was incredible from the maids to the restaurant staff to the concierge. Tons to do. The mini golf and water park were a hit for the kids.

We recently spent a few days at this resort and loved it. The food was always good and fresh. The rooms were very comfortable and clean; however,I didn't like the modern décor and would have preferred a simpler, more tropical environment. The beach was perfect!
