    I want to know how reliable the WiFi is at the resort?? Can it be accessed in all rooms and common areas? I want to use this to stay in touch with family and friends back home however if it is not reliable I will purchase a data package from my cellular provider before I leave. Thanks!

    WiFi is strongest in the lounge and lobby, but it can be accessed from the rooms although it is quite spotty
