Almost 2 hr ride from airport but the ride was good with air and a funny driver who entertained and told us about things as we passed them. Scenic drive went by fast.
When we arrived at noon was told no rooms ready until 3pm but could check back in hour and I did. We toured property on our own while waiting but after 1 hr room was ready but luggage was still in lobby and took over 30 minutes to get there, I was ready to unpack and get started on vacay. Bldg 2 5th floor 3509 was a great room Kig Sz Bed, sitting area, middle area with frig and alcohol dispenser and closet then a nice bathroom with double sinks and shower tub in marble and granite. Nice woods in room, older TV, satellite cable. Maid will only clean if u put sign on door. She did a good job of keeping it clean. Nice view from patio of ocean and pool and pond in middle of resort.
Wasnt big on eating at the theme restaurants but did eat at the steakhouse one night. you have to get ur own salad and deserts, They only bring your entree and drinks to you. Not bad but nothing to brag about either. The daily buffets are the best becase of the large variety. there is soomething there for every one, meat people, veggie and fruit ppl and sweets! Lots to choose from, They change it a little every night and theb had mexican night and asian night one night. The waitresses and waiters were nice. I liked ice tea and they always made me some and brought sugar. Bar drinks were good mostly, depends on which bartender you got. Only encountered two rude ones at the swim up bar on activity side as far as the were very nice. On show nights it took too long to get a drink and u didnt want to leave your seat or some one would get it. I cant say enough about the entertainment group!! They were totally awesome. Me and my husband went on this 8 day trip. We enjoyed the activities on the beach (even tho im paying for it now with an ankle brace on :( ) The activity pool stuff was fun. The did great. The night time shows are worth seeing. they can dance like crazy and it is very obvious they work hard at what they do, 007 hilarious! Peacock too! I LOVED the Michael Jackson show. I thought he had come back from the dead as how real as that was! Great Job! The lots of walking wears you out so if you have the stamina to walk a big resort then i say go for it but if you have some orthopedic issues with feet and back then this might not be for you,
We was in 2nd bldg 5th floor with beautiful view of mountains on front door and ocean on patio and close to elevator, but a large ramp/incline to get up it. Shower water pressure was horrible. I need higher pressure to get soap out of my thick hair. at 3 it would be hardly any hotwater at all because everybody was leaving pool to go take showersfor dinner so then no pressure and no water. take it earlier or later. no problems with bugs. i dont see how these other ppl are so picky, however will tell you his, I dont tip extra and didnt get treated any differently! Everyone was nice. When you pay for your trip the gratuities are included and it makes me made that obviously are rich and can afford to to make others look like their cheap but when you save for a trip that states it covers everything,,,that how it should stay!
We went to Dunn's rivers Falls, Unfortunately i couldnt climb because of my ankle and back but my husband did. it was beautiful, you can walk the 110 stairs alongside and watch on the sides then step in on the sides to take a dp in the water, A must see!
