This place might not be a 5 star by Canadian standards but had a pleasant stay. Our room did not have a moldy/musty smell like some have stated. The housekeeping staff work very hard & everything was always neat and tidy. The beds have no blankets so it gets a little chilly at night. You can ask for blankets but...

Our check in was smooth considering there was a coachful arrived at the same time and it was past 10 p.m. The staff offered sandwiches and dessert in the lobby bar fridge which was a sandwich with some sort of spread and a slice of pineapple. We were hungry after a 4 1/2 hour flight from Toronto but we were...

I read many reviews for this resort and there were some...

We recently spent 2 weeks here and we had an amazing time. We can't really complain about our stay. All the area were always clean, there was always something different to eat.

The room was OK, although the beds were hard as stone. There are no elevators, we were on the third floor. There was a porter when we arrived but not when we left. It was clean and the maid did a great job. There is 110 power but the charger for my blackberry wouldn't fit the recessed outlets so I...
