Simply put, just not the same.
While the actual location in respect to the local area and grounds are very unique and beautiful, the amenities don't add up for the cost. We were very surprised and disappointed with the changes (all very accurately referenced by previous traveller 'Sandy' from Calgary in his December travel). We too chose this resort as our 'go-to' hotel and with sadness are seeking out another 'home away from home'. The hotel appears to have made a large shift in terms of their 'all inclusive' option which left us feeling like a liability. At the very least, the AI plan option, which does not come cheap!, should certainly include a ceasar salad. We have also seen a noticeable decline in beach service as well as a definite decline in maid service.
Should the latest management of this hotel seriously consider the reviews, especially of repeat guests, reinstate the prior inclusions as well as demonstrate a loyalty and level of respect for repeat guests, then we would return......Until then we would like to sincerely thank all the wonderful staff we have met over the years and wish them and their families (you know who you are) all the very best of good health and happiness......
