My wife and I recently stayed at the GDM for 3 nights. It was all first-class from the time we arrived until the morning we left. The staff was very friendly, engaged, and professional (and not just to us, we saw it with the other guests). We had a first floor room w/ a patio that lead out to the (adult) pool. Our (standard) room was large w/ 2 desks, a sitting area, comfortable bed, N'espresso maker, and large bathroom/vanity area that included a 2-pp soaker tub.
The resort grounds were gorgeous. The Addison restaurant was as good as advertised (and there were reasonable alternatives for lunch/dinner). And while we did not really expect much from Club M being from Miami, it turned out to be a lot of fun w/ a good dj.
Hotel also offers free sedan service around the grounds and local area (which we think should be the norm at a 5-star resort and given the cost).
This resort is expensive, but def worth it. Perfect for a getaway.
