There were approx. 65 of us in the group for a wedding. The service here is second to none! amazing staff! We were all placed in the same building, great to connect with our friends/family. Most had upgraded to the jr superior suite - well worth it! rooms were beautiful, large bathrooms, big balconies, comfy beds.. the only complaint about the rooms - was the key/card had to be changed a few times because of a bad battery in the door lock. rectified the first night.. no problems after that. the resort is very clean and well kept - considering they just battled 2 hurricanes - we were really impressed. the beach is long and very pretty. the vendors on the beach don't hassle you too much, and all sell very nice articles - at good prices. massages are only $30 an hour! highly recommend them.. the food... where to start.. it was amazing! we didn't try all of the a la cartes, but the buffet was fantastic on it's own - you don't really need to go elsewhere. but try the Brazilian.. wow! that was the venue for the wedding dinner, and it was superb. cannot say enough good things about this resort, definitely worth the money! (even the trip through the mountains from the airport was great :) )
