We went to celebrate our 5th anniversary with another couple and we provided a suite upgrade on our check in (we had mentioned that we had been to this resort a couple of years ago and loved it so much that we wanted to celebrate our 5th and we got the upgrade!) - what a way to start the vacation.
The staff everywhere: front desk, cleaning staff, entertainment, bartenders were all very friendly. The service was fantastic.
The food was good, i thought the breakfast and lunch buffet options were plentiful and mostly delicious as we tried new foods (mussels) that we'd not ever try at a normal restaurant. Krystal was the best of the restaurant choices, the Brazilian restaurant was probably the weakest, but we still enjoyed the experience. One downfall is that after a week, the food does get a bit repetitive.
The beach was in great shape, and the water was awesome for swimming.
Some nit picky type items: some of the furniture looks worn, some rugs also shored a bit of wear. I suppose these items might bother some for a so called 5-star resort, but it did not effect our enjoyment whatsoever.
Overall, our room was great, it was cleaned and the maid service was always prompt and thorough. An amazing experience!
