The staff was very friendly and helpful but the property was a little run down and in need of maintenance. Not very many activities offered and a little music to liven things up would have been appreciated. The water is beautiful, the beach was clean but the resort is very secluded and far from town and other tourist activities. It was an $80 cab ride from the airport.

The proximity to the beaches and in-ground pools were convenient to all of the rooms. The golf pro shop was very helpful prior to our round of golf. The food and buffets were very tasty, depending on time of arrival to restaurant there was a line, and once seated easy quick to get meal. Did notice on the nights with no buffet type meal, the wait time for service and arrival of prepared food was long. This wasn’t a big deal as we were on vacation, but was a long wait for families with young children.

There are a lot of different activities. The pool is fantastic. The balconies are ample and a joy to sit and watch the sunset.

It is a very nice hotel. Because the hotel is so far from everything they should provide entertainment for their guests. It was very quiet nothing to do in the evening. The staff is great.

Nice Hotel with amazing golf course

I like staying in the hotel and I'll put the pros and cons about it: Pros: Nice Hotel, close to the beach, nice size pool and people serving drink at the pool and beach. All stuff members super nice. Golf course is the best. Cons: Food not many choices and really, really expensive ( I was staying for 7 days and they offer me all you can eat $150 dollars per night per person that's $2100 dollars only for the food !!! unreasonable) They do not change bed sheets every day ( I was told they do every 3 days but I had to ask them to change after 4 th day we were there. and in my opinion for the price you are paying they should change every day)

Excellent customer service

Great stay. I went for my birthday and I had an excellent time. The staff that greeted me at the entrance Laurence was great. The front desk staff Mark and Jennifer were also excellent they made you feel welcome. The staff at bawn fire was also great... Sunny. The bawn fire need more work.. some form of entertainment while making Smores there was nothing to say or do.. karaoke or games will be great. The events at the resort was also great. The guy that we went hiking with was also wonderful. Overall, you will have a good time. Only thing I think yhe Wi-Fi should be free for your stay.
