wonderful place. VERY LARGE! It has a little 'choo choo" train that takes you
from section to secton, no charge. comes every 15 minutes. if you miss it- it is 15 minutes of waiting.or you could walk along the beach- . 10 minute walk.
we stayed in the "new" adult only section- 4 buildings that have been redesigned for adults only..nOT couples only, so you do get some of a younger group. Tthe rooms are very nice, fairly quite and excellent service for whatever you need..
there is a large pool, a bar close by, (not in the pool, but next to it) there are two restaurants for the adult section- one buffet restaurant and one very good reservation restaurant
with excellent food and service.
there are 12 total restaurants at the resort, we tried 11 of them. all were very nice and great service.. we went with the upgraded select choice. with this you get your own
reservation service, you just stop by and make reservations at any of the restaurants for a certain time, no problem with this, except being such a large resort, the staff recommends that you make your reservations the first day you get there for your entire stay.
we dine late so 8 pm was a good time slot- if you like americans/ dining the 5-6:30 times are
a little harder to do. the upgrade also gives you a wonderful no charge special exeuctive
club area, with internet service, (no charge) morning, afternoon and evening mini snacks, with coffee, wine and champagne till 10pm each day.
The ;pools are NOT HEATED, the jacuzzi in the pool IS NOT HEATED. In fact it is hard to find any water that IS heated. it was a bit of a surprise to find this out. it would be nice to have at least ONE area that had warm water.
the ocean at this time of year had lots of sea weed. the staff did a very good job of cleaning
up the seaweed. but it is an ongoing problem for swimming..
the staff is wonderful- they flow from english to 3 different langauges flawlessly..
the entertainment at the "adutl " section is rather low key- but if you take the little choo choo over- there are nightly shows that are really great! :
the only problem with this place is that it is SO LARGE! ! we prefer a smaller resort, but if you can deal with the size it is a great place to stay. GO WITH THE UPGRADE as you get so much more in service for just a bit more money.
