The grounds were dirty but beautiful views. Room was ok, out dated but for the price it's expected. There was some sort of pool birthday party going on and it made it very uncomfortable for my family to swim. Too many screaming kids running around the pool with out life guard. We tried to have breakfast in the restaurant, there was no one eating or any staff to greet us, after waiting some time a women came gave us menus. She was some what pleasant but we decided to try nickels diner down the road which had plenty of people and good food for a great price. Later that evening my husband and I went for some drinks at the bar. A tall gentleman, Fabiano or Fransico (sorry can't remember) greeted us and made us feel very welcome. He also made terrific drinks and had us laughing. He was busy, seemed like only person working. A young women offered to get us anything but she had attitude. We asked for more water and napkins the wings were very saucy and good. She didn't give us water and tossed the napkins in front of us. My husband thinks her name tag said sandy or cindy. Too bad we can't remember names, the bartender great, women was awful and rude. It seemed as if the waitress was more interested in talking with the bartender than helping the guests. We would recommend this resort and come again. We suggest hiring new staff in morning and evening, maybe staff training for the women there.
Also there was no elevators so pack lite.
