The hotel and rooms are gorgeous. The resort is laid out really nice. I was disappointed that they don't give you breakfast coupons or set up a little continental bar for guests in the morning. For the quality of the resort I would expect a little more. Other then that, the place is worth the visit. Easy access to the...

What fun to have a great full course brunch with Santa. The 10 month old could not take his eyes off Santa and the 5 and 11 gave him hugs and shook hands! A great time to see other local families with kids and grandkids!

Like going to a tropical island in the summer and in the winter the have a cozy fire pit. Great clean rooms. I'll stay there again and again. The place is nestled in a gated area. They have velvet 24 hours a day. The biggest heat pool I ever seen. The rooms over looking the pool are great.
