I went on a father daughter vacation while mom was hard at work. We were very dissappointed in the overall experience and the week. We were at the lodge at the same time as nixLDB and would have to agree with the honeymooners review. The run each morning on the beach was the best part of the trip for me and my daughter was completely bored the entire week. The beach/bar pool was very dirty with green fungus covering most of the bottom however, the dog completely enjoyed his swim all day long. There were no activities at all. I am not sure where the 5-star comments on the food are coming from, but if you arrived 30 minutes after food service started (a no set time each day) you would not get all that was served and after 3 nights of serving calamari, I have had my fill and it was below par. The best day was when french fries (chips) were served for lunch as the meal. I asked to talk to the chef and he appeared in his chef jacket at my table - I asked him if he created the menu for the day and what inspired him to only serve chips - he mumbled something and walked away. If I had wanted chips, I would not have spent thousands of dollars and went to McDonalds. I attempted to salvage something for my daughter so, I reserved an hour body massage a day in advance - the massage person never showed and after waing for an hour, we gave up. Upon departure, we were loaded into a strange looking bus with no air conditioning and were we in for a ride. This had to be the roughest ride for about an hour I had ever taken in my life and I rode wild bulls in professional rodeos in the United States. I am so happy my wife missed this trip.
