– “This resort is the epitome of luxury relaxation. Delicious food, unlimited booze, sun, beaches, pools. There is nothing more I could have asked for. The grounds of the resort are gorgeous. Well tended and spacious. The staff are all exceedingly helpful and are always available to answers questions or assist in any way possible. The wait staff are amazing and if you tip them well, they will remember you and take extra steps to ensure your stay is even more enjoyable. The only slight complaint relates to the unexpected heat and the resort has no control over the climate. Amazing resort that we will visit again.” – Alicia B. (09/2017)
– “Nothing short of amazing. Wife and i went on our honeymoon, amazing customer service, great food, friendly staff, beautiful location. Walked in to a complimentary bottle of champagne and more than welcoming faces. Best vacation yet.” – Ryan S. (09/2017)
– “Don’t be deterred by other reviews stating how large and spread-out the property is. This is a BONUS. It never feels overly busy, and it’s easy to go for nice, secluded walks down winding cobblestone roads or along wooden boardwalks. The accommodations are beautiful, and the food has yet to disappoint. There is such a variety of dining and drinking options, there’s sure to be a favorite for everyone. Highly recommend a stay in this resort.” – Jerry B. (07/2017)
