Amazing staff. Find Willy the bartender. Beach was great, I was expecting much less after reading all of the comments on here. Worth checking out the cove 5 minutes north, though.

Bed was very comfortable. Got the lowest level room, the garden view, and loved it. Was huge, near 'small pool': super convenient.

Always within 20 yards of food and drink here, unless you are walking between the small pool and beach. We liked the walk - gorgeous property. Takes about 10 minutes. We didn't take a cart once.

Swing Bar on beach was super fun. Burgers grilled by big pool were great.

Service was exceptional. If you are the tipping sort, I would suggest bringing $50-$80 a day in one dollar bills. If you are not the tipping sort, shame on you.
Towels are a strange surreal commodity here. The towel for towel card exchange is, while not terribly inconvenient, just a pointless exercise that requires more thought than necessary.

It takes a few days to learn the tricks of eating well here. The watery vats of scrambled eggs at breakfast can be avoided by asking the omelette station person to make you over easy eggs or fresh scrambled. The roast chicken at the buffet is a winner. Salad bar is great, too.

The restaurants were a disappointment. Just reconfigured buffet food and more formal.

Flashing LED above our very comfortable bed bothered me at times.

Tough joint to take a vegetarian to. She was dying for simple grilled veggie tacos. We had to go to town for those. If you are not dying for veggie tacos, or looking for less expensive souvenirs, don't bother going to town.
