The resort is large and nice but there isn't much luxury past the architecture.
The beds are rock hard so you'll need to ask for a topper.
They don't restock mini bar unless you ask, then it takes several hours.
At each buffet style meal, you must get up to ask for water refills, silverware, napkins, etc.
The music plays so loudly each day at the pool/beach that you can't hear the ocean. Then once you retreat to your room for the evening, you hear the constant music in the casino. So much for a little R&R.
There is a nice area for kids to play in the shade at the pool.
The fitness center is nice.
Ask to be in a newly renovated room.
