Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
A great resort with an amazing view and pool area. The room service staff is amazing! I was in the room a couple of times when they were cleaning and the level of attention was outstanding. They are also very helpful with requests and questions. The only not so positive comment is that you should skip the spa and buffet if possible. They are just “fine”.
