"I have so many highlights I dont know where to begin. Let's start with the staff. EVERY STAFF member went above and beyond to make us feel special. Chris and Stephanie were especially attentive. I hope they are there on our next trip. The faux beach has got to be the most genius idea I've encountered at a resort. You get all the things you love about a beach (sand, ocean views, ocean water) and none of the things that could ruin a beach outing (like rocky bottoms, harmful marine life or seaweed). Theres also a nice size outdoor pool for those who dont want to swim in saltwater. The beachside bar and grill was perfect for any beach bumb that wishes to have drinks and dine on the beach. The room was clean and spacious and the 3rd fl ocean view was unobstructed. My only critique is that the food quality was inconsistent. I was told it's because the staff dont follow a standard recipe but that dishes depend on how each particular chef interpets the dish. For this reason, I'm glad that I didnt select the all-inclusive option. Also, be prepared to soend about $30-$35 pp on meals. The taxes are pretty high. The resort should explain the Service Tax to guests because in the beginning I didn't tip much thinking "gratuity" was included.
It wasnt until I was asked about tipping a few times that I inquired and was told that the service tax doesn’t go to the server. All-in-all, this has been one of my favorite vacation destinations. My family will definitely be back."
