Hotel view was beautiful! I doubt I would stay here without selecting the premium package again. The golf cart helps a ton since everything is so far! My family also had rooms closer to check-in location & they weren't too impressed with the size & condition. Food is actually very tasty. Maintenance in rooms needs some work. Staff was AMAZING!!

We were there for my daughters wedding. It was beautiful. The perfect place! Excursion drive was a little long but very nice once we got there. Your shuttle guys are awesome! Food and drinks were very good and everything was very clean.

Stairs... be very ready to hike some stairs. they are everywhere and while they will shuttle you to your rooms, there is no way to get to the beach or pool without many many stairs. Not really a complaint, its just is what it is. This was my first stay at an "all-inclusive" and I have to say it was...
