First let me say, this resort was better than we expected!
Now if you do not have childern with you, I highly recommend the Amber upgrade which is near the beach. Now we love kids, but the beach in this area was nice and relaxing without little ones running around. Also the pool in the Amber was void of little ones and was adults only. Now the other areas of the resort had plently of little ones in the pools and common areas. Plus the Amber area was not crowded as the the rest of the resort.
Now there are two trams that run the lengh of the resort to get to other parts of the resort, never had any problems going to and from at all. Casino and night life is at the front of the resort so you will need to take tram.
Rooms were exceptional, left a few dollars each day and our room was taken care of. Also with the Amber upgrade 24 hour room service is included for free, and in room safe was free also. On that note, I recommend taking $50.00 or so in ones for tips....very helpful with bar tenders and waiteress!
Buffet food was good too, very wide range to meet the tastes of all folks from different parts of the world! Also you might want to bush up on your Spanish, very few spoke english and most of the guests were spanish speaking. There was a scattering of Americans but not many.
Make reservations asap for all Al carte resturants, same day you get on the resort! Avoid the Japenese, it was not good at all. The Garden Grill ( steak house) was the best of the bunch!
The grounds were void of any flaws, very well manicured and clean!
Staff was very helpful, but again spanish attempts help!
Overall this was a fantastice resort and I would return to any of their properties!
