Housekeeping is really bad, rooms smell like mold and dirt, they mop floors and...

We booked this trip relatively last minute and paid about $750 per person with no single supplement. Overall we found the resort to be great value for money.

My family and I were at the resort for two weeks over Christmas and New Years. I have read the reviews, and have to admit that a lot of the reviews are true - however, it really depends on how picky you are with this stuff. We came for a relaxing trip, and that is what we got. The staff...

I have been reading a lot of the reviews for this resort....the one thing most people forget is that this is not Canada or the United States.
