5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The food was AMAZING! You didn't have to have reservations at restaurants. The staff everywhere were just EXCELLENTE! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect vacation. We were greeted with a cool cloth and a drink upon arrival. If you're looking for a RELAXING vacation, this is the place for you! We exercised, ate and drank all we wanted, and sat by the pool and beach. If you wanted activities, they were there, and nightly shows. We spent most evenings in the sports bar with the amazing bartenders and servers there. It was sad to leave. You felt like you were leaving part of your family!
