OK. Having read the plethora reviews on this hotel before leaving (seeing as we were travelling with an 11 month old, so we wanted to know the scoop) - I only felt it necessary to add my 2 cents worth -.

Overall, they were very well organized and food and drinks were great. Service was not bad. They did their best in my opinion. Horse back riding excursion was something to remember... Swim-up bars were small but fun. Too bad they were closed so early. However, they can improve on few things.. Their night entertainment at the resort can get boring...

The shuttle bus service is really convenient and is needed. Plenty of great restaurants to eat all over ...I have never been to a resort before (in 10 years) where you...
