Words cannot explain how beautiful and wonderful this resort was. It’s been a week after my stay and I continue to feel nostalgic over my 5-night stay. Every worker greeted me with a smile and not only because they are getting paid to do so but because they genuinely love their job. The only negative thing I would like to comment is they everything is ridiculously expensive, so get great to spend some money!

It was magical! I can’t remember the last time I actually teared up when I had to leave a hotel to return home. The staff were friendly and helpful. The spa facial, massage and aromatherapy room were all great. Spend the day at the spa’s private pool. You won’t be disappointed. The fitness center was clean and had everything I needed. I think my favorite part of my stay was the biking trails. You can ride on the beautiful nature trails to the beach, the Rosewood and Banyan Tree hotels and shops. I saw monkeys, iguanas, a baby shark, and blue birds. The only thing I was disappointed in was the espresso! Thanks for a wonderful vacation. Karen

While the service staff was outstanding, the property seems outdated, beach sun beds were very basic and old and overall the property does not have the amenities of a true five star hotel.
