I booked two nights in one of the more expensive rooms at this resort and then made the mistake of reading other reviews on this site. Hence, I was expecting the worst, even though I had once visited this resort a few years ago.
Overall, it was a wonderful experience: my room was lovely and clean, the resort was beautiful and well-maintained, and the staff was all very pleasant (except maybe for some of the staff in the Marketplace--could stand to be a little nicer).
Although there was a mistake with my room, the front desk staff ended up fixing the problem fairly quickly and moving me to the room that had been described in my confirmation e-mail, with a minimum of fuss.
There are always lots of activities going on, and even though I didn't participate in much I still enjoyed all the energy at this resort.
The pools ARE very crowded, I will warn other readers. Even the "adults only" pool, which unfortunately seemed to have quite a few under-21 people sneaking in, was overly crowded. However, I visited over a weekend, so this was not a complete surprise.
Overall a great resort and one that I would love to visit again and again!
