We enjoyed this resort. If you are looking for a 5+ star this is not the resort for you. Rooms are older but clean and fridges are stocked. Staff are. Stu friendly. Resort is the biggest we have been to so be prepared to walk. Food was great, breakfast was the best. Pools, and entertainment were great.

Check in - wow impressive - so organized - they had a table set up in the middle of the lobby where a couple of staff gave out envelopes containing your info, map, key (yes only 1 old fashioned key), and towel card...
