The landscape is beautiful but when we entered our room we were met with a foul odor. It was probably caused by the unwashed floors in the kitchen and bathroom. The flies buzzing around didn’t help. They refused to move us to a different unit. We won’t be back.
All you have to do is sit back and enjoy everything this place has to offer. The suites are huge and modern. The kitchens are fully stocked with appliances. But the restaurants are the best. The pools are fantastic. And the staff is extremely attentive. We misplaced our sunscreen at a pool bar, and the bartender saved it for us until we came back the next day. That's what I call service!
