While the location was wonderful, the resort itself was awful. The first night at the resort, my husband and I, and one of our teenagers ate at the Japanese restaurant. While there were not many people eating, the service was extremely slow, the table and our silverware were dirty and when the food arrived, it was barely edible. On top...
