We stayed here for 5 nights in Feb 2009.
Rooms - We initially booked regular ocean view rooms but when we checked in they upgraded us to the Honeymoon Villas. These rooms are spectacular; King canopied bed, 2 person hammock in the bedroom, sitting room, completely private 20' x 30' patio - compete with large jacuzi, shower, and patio furniture plus a beautiful very large bathroom (30' x 10') complete with jacuzi indoor tub. Beds - soft and wonderful - order the pillow you like from the pillow menu.
Outdoor Property - very large, awesome, beautifully landscaped
Indoor Property - awesome art work on the walls and ceilings, also please visit every public restroom you see - as each is different and truly unique.
Food - breakfast and lunch buffet were wonderful, dinner - again wonderful (but on your first night make your reservations for your entire trip.
Pools - Alot of wind at the main pool, we enjoyed the tranquility pool the best.
Golf - very good
Spa - excellent - we did the couples massage ($220USD)
Staff - again wonderful and friendly, tips are included in the price you pay but please tip these people anyway they really deserve it.
Beach - alittle rocky near the water, but beautiful sand, you could not swim in the ocean the waves were too rough when we were there.
Dress - nice resort cloths for the evenings - no need to get too dressed up
Cleanliness - never once was this an issue
Security - this is a complety fenced in, large gated community (but you do not notice the fences or the security)
Surrounding area - did not leave the resort
Minor Issues - 1) a few mosquitos at twilight - but they give you insect repellant wipes in your room and 2) the painted sidewalks are slippery when they are wet.
