When we stayed at your resort in September, 2016 we had room service with burgers (delicious) and the most incredible French Onion Soup I have ever had! Did that come from your restaurant or from another one on the property? I will be visiting the area in the next week and I want to make sure I come to your resort to get another bowl of that awesome soup! Thank you.
