This hotel exceeded our expectations. My husband and I went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the moment you arrive, until the moment you leave, you are treated warmly and genuinely by the entire staff. Our room was spacious, clean, nicely furnished and a had all the little extras that make it exceptional. The resort itself is big, the grounds are immaculate and has a very "zen" vibe. We tried all of the restaurants, and each had a different feel. The food and drinks were generally good, no complaints. The beach was good and clean. They offer non-motorized sports and there was also a jet ski or two for rent. You don't even have to walk to the bar for food and drinks, as they have beach service which will keep you replenished. I recommend spending the extra money on the appetite for luxury package, because the food and drink prices are pretty high. A general dinner for two will run you about $200 before gratuities. We love to golf, and the golf course (PGA), was beautiful. It seemed simple enough, but believe me it was quite challenging. We played a round daily while we were there, and each time was a unique experience. So, take your golf clubs, you'll be glad you did! Overall, it was perhaps the most pleasant stay we've ever had at any resort, and we are frequent travelers. We just got back and have already booked our next stay for my husband's birthday in February! Can't wait...

Just returned from a very relaxing 4-night stay. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. Check-in is very smooth. No waiting in line at a check-in desk. You are greeted with a refreshing drink, tour of the resort and a golf cart ride to your room. The resort is small and intimate. Very beautiful! The food is outstanding! However, there are only 3 restaurants, so if you're looking for a variety of different types of cuisines you won't find that at this resort. There was no swimming in the ocean and there was lots of seaweed in the water and on the beach, but we weren't looking to swim in the ocean. The pool is one of the best we've seen. It's the perfect size with some deeper areas and areas with a few inches of water for lounging. The guys that work around the pool are so friendly and again willing to get you anything you want. The lounge chairs are very comfy. Be sure to the pool early to get a good spot with an umbrella. One of the down sides of this resort is that there is no entertainment at night. The resort is pretty much dead after 9pm. You can go to other sister resorts in the area like Secretes for nighttime entertainment, but you need to pay for your own transportation (taxi). Since this is the highest level resort in the grouping, I would expect free transportation to the near-by sister resorts. Also, the spa and other activities like snorkeling, private dinners, etc. are expensive. We really enjoyed our stay though and can't wait to go back
