We got spoiled (romantic dinner, flowers, strawberries, bathrobe, One extra A la carte restaurant) for free. Great food in all the restaurants. Everyone is very friendly and they do their very best to make you happy throughout your vacation. I recommend this resort for your next vacation. Had no problems and is very satisfied with her vacation.
