This resort deserves the accolades it has received. The hotel is immaculate and beautifully decorated. There is real attention to detail. The service is exceptional and not at all stuffy. They are just as friendly whether you are dressed up or in your bathing suit. The rooms are large and comfortable. Pool area is very nice (but this is not a carribean resort - the pool is not the focal point of the resort). There is no question that this is a word class resort.
Babysitting -- we were travelling with a 5 month old and were VERY reluctant about using nanny service in the evening (so that we could try the fancier restuarants). The conceirge was understanding and found us a very experienced nanny who actually works in the resort daycare during the day. She then put us in touch with the nanny's supervisor to give a personal reference. This made us more comfortable (I refuse to leave a child that young with a nanny from a referral service) and we used a nanny for 2 evenings. It was $17 per hour for 4 hour minimum, which I don't think is unreasonable. For those interested, the nanny's name was Mercedes, I think (it's been a while).
