Good food, beautiful resort, friendly service. Building 5 is older rooms, try to not get rooms there. Beautiful beach, top shelf alcohol choices. Restaurants were very good, especially the Japon. Great snack station for day time at the pool or beach.

The water in the shower was horrible, it would go from super hot to super cold throughout the entire shower. Room...
