Spring break vacation. Absolutely delightful. Pool staff went out of their way every day to be sure we were taken care of. The grounds and rooms are immaculate. The morning breakfast was delicious. Can’t wait to go back!
We stayed for 5 days with our 3 children
Plenty of room and great view of the beach.
Our Butler Jerome was so helpful arranging logistics and reservations for us. He took a lot of the stress of planning our nightly meals and arranging transportation.
One tip, if your traveling with a large group and planning on visiting sites outside of the resort. Look into renting a car, the taxi services are nationalized, its $5 per person just to go a short distance, then about $1 per mile after that.
The spa and relaxation area were perfect for meditation and yoga.
The complimentary breakfast buffet was 5 star.
Resort restaurants were good but not great.
