How to Get There
We have been staying at this resort for over 14 years. Still top notch with quality staff. We had to cancel our trip back in September due to the hurricane and the hotel staff was very accommodating to our misfortune and did everything they could to help us out and rescheduled.
We are a couple in our upper sixties and had a fantastic time here. Will definitely return. The playroom seemed cold and uninviting...needs a makeover and didn’t look like the picture on website. Activities were fun and the resort staff are some of the finest we have ever experienced.
Our 3rd straight year!...They always provide top notch services!! Our last night's meal at Suki's was spectacular!! Many thanks to our server Israel for arranging a very special & memorable meal (and special kudos to chef Jesus)!
We notified the Hosts about a food allergy and every day the food was presented to us and in the restaurant we dined at. After a bad food allergy attack and going into anaphylactic shock and taking an epipen, the dining manager and food staff people said they would remove the vegetable form all restaurants. Not done. They even lined up all the food staff in front of us with the head chef and apologized for the problems. Nothing changed. It was a 9 day trip filled with allergic reactions and our worse time ever. And the sad part is we used up our last 4 free nights from our membership. We went over Thanksgiving and have not heard a peep out of them and our first lousy review was removed or not posted. The only great thing about this trip was seeing old staff there and the service form the staff that recognized us and tried to make everything OK for us. They all knew the problems we had with a food allergy. So we are going back in April and it better be better or I am selling my membership and never going again.
What a headline right? The entire stay overall was great, and the food and service were excellent. The resort is a little pricey unless you can score some deals and go at off-peak seasons. The only complaint we really have was two-fold. One a serious issue, and the other just a nuisance.
After speaking with multiple guests (including premier members), several people have slipped on the top step of the pool getting into it. A couple of people told me that a person hit their head and died, but I cannot verify this of course. However, others being injured was common. Early in the morning on our second day, a thin slimy film had developed. My foot went out from under me and I fell flat on my back and split my elbow open when it hit the ledge of the pool bracing my fall. It required stitches and antibiotics. I was an inch away from hitting my head on the ledge, so this experience could have been monumentally worse. Also, this was before any alcohol for the day so that wasn't a factor, and I'm young and fit so it was not a physical limitation. I will say their medical team did a good job at patching me up and every manager came over to assess the situation. They put out a yellow wet caution cone that stayed for the remainder of our stay as a warning to others. The resort just needs to anchor a mat to the top step of the pool or change the tile surface. This is a known problem they've neglected to fix. From what we were told by other guests, similar issues occurred going down the stairs from the Jacuzzi. They eventually fixed that by placing small mats on each step for grip. So just be careful until they actually do something about this safety hazard.
The other issue was the reserving of the chairs with staff. You have to do so by 8am or all the good ones with full sun are taken. Never experienced this at other resorts. Although we see how owning a chair for the day prevents fights, if you're not using it all day long, it prevents others that could. Not sure what's the best solution here. In addition, they keep half of them reserved for premier members. The elite vs the newbie peasants I guess. So again, a nuisance, but not a deal breaker. Others may like this approach, and they have to offer some type of perks for becoming a member. So we get it, just didn't care for it as first timers.
The disco was fun and the nightly entertainment was decent. The beach suffers from occasional sea weed dumps, but they work hard and semi-fast to clean most of it up. Otherwise it's nice and quiet with a bar. Overall worth a stay.
