the only negative comment I would have for this resort is that the room numbers are super confusing. other than that, the staff, the food, the accommodations, were amazing. also I wanted to mention, how quiet the rooms are, I never heard anything from any other room around me.

Beautiful property, friendly staff, delicious food, lots to do. I have come here a few times with my wife before we had a child and just came back for the first time with a three year old. Every experience has been awesome!

I cannot say enough about this hotel. The rooms were beautiful and huge. Every last detail was attended to including full size spa toiletries in shower and at vanity. A newspaper was delivered in a stylish burlap tote. There was a gorgeous view from the very large balcony, a cozy fireplace, a bed that was so comfortable I wished I could stay for a month. Besides all this, the grounds, lobby, restaurant, bar and pool were breathtaking. They even had a cart full of fixings for 'smores next to the fire pit. Staff was very nice and professional. I mean this when I say I have never had a better hotel experience in any city, state or country across the map. This place sets the bar to a whole new level. Bravo!

The staff was top notch, well trained and friendly. The room was not well thought-out, so I was unimpressed. If the room had been better, I'd have given better marks. The food was on the whole better than average.

The rooms, the site, the activities, everything was perfect. We relaxed and had the opportunity to learn about the area. The food was awesome, maybe a bit expensive but the quality is there. Spend time visiting the resort, it is such a nice place. Tennis courses for kids were memorable for my son.
