The property needs maintenance. We had multiple power outages, our door lock broke and needed to be replaced and our pool water spout was broke. There was also peeling paint everywhere on the property.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Overall our stay was amazing. The staff was super friendly & always willing to help. The facility is well maintained & aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Our room came with a jacuzzi which I was not expecting but that seemed to be standard for every room. There was free room service & also someone would come daily & refill your mini bar. The resort really tried to uphold a high class experience for all their guests. The shows were great & everyone does their best to put on a great show! Even Michael Jackson show was awesome! However, there were some things that needed improvement. For example, there was hardly any opportunities to try food typical of the culture. In the buffet, the mangu, fried cheese, & salami were cold. This happened consistently throughout our stay. The restaurants were beautiful but the food was a hit or a miss. Sometimes we waited 2 hrs to get our food which was unacceptable. We were not impressed at all with the the food specifically at the Indian Restaurant, Basmati. Our food took long to come out & what came out was not at all what Indian food really taste like. We were so disappointed that we decided not to try the Asian Restaurant because we didn't want to have a disappointing experience with Cultural food made at the Resort again. The desserts were by far the worst part. The presentation was great but lacked in sweetness & flavor. Food needs improvement for sure. But again, overall the experience was awesome.
