Great staff, took advantage of the pool and it’s great poolside service. Loved the fact you can walk from the pool to beach if you wanted to. Property downside was the room A/C—temp can only be adjusted between 68-70. When the A/C kicks in, it’s very noisy, run for about 2 minutes and still leaves the room feeling warm. Not good when it’s almost 90 outside.

The pool and the beach are fantastic. They need to work on customer service, especially at the front desk. We wait around 15 minutes to check in before somebody acknowledges us. The employees were just talking between them, making jokes, talking about what they had done, and laughing, and we were just waiting. I felt like they did not care.

The property is absolutely gorgeous! The chandeliers, the lobby, the old world charm everywhere is elegant and impressive. Superb entertainment every night in the lobby! All restaurants had fantastic food. My daughters wedding was there and it was truly magical! The concierge was very helpful. Tours were explained completely & easy to schedule. This property is by far my favorite resort I have ever experienced. Everyone was courteous & helpful. Many fantastic restaurants within walking distance for lunches and dinners.

I Didn't Like That Everything Was Extremely Overpriced And What Was Being Offered Didn't Amount To The Price Being Asked.. There Were No Microwaves To Heat Items Which Forced You To Starve All Night, I Was Given A Totally Different Room Apart From What I Booked & They Didn't Even Tell Me, As I Found Out When I Walked Into The Room, After Seeing That It Wasn't My Room And Now Complaining.. I Was Then Told That What I Was Given Was An Upgrade From My Original Room With A Patio As Well As I Would Have To Wait A Few More Hrs For Them To Get My Original Room I Purchased Ready.. Which Was Ridiculous Seeming It Was After 4 Pm.. And Last Last But Not Least The Rooms Were Extremely Hot The AC Units Were Despicable To Put It Nicely.. I Sweated My Whole First Night And Had To Be Moved To Another Room The Neat Day Which Was Sooooo Annoying Seeming I Had To Pack Up All My Belinging To Move To A Room Clear Across The Property..
