    So clean!

    We have stayed at the resort several times but with the Corona virus still worrisome, we were a little nervous about staying in a hotel. There were numerous hand sanitizer stations in lobby and in the checkout area. The staff were as friendly and professional as usual and the entire resort was pristeen and just sparkly clean. Everything was just perfect and we cant wait to return. The resort has everything you need, restaurants, a pizza kiosk, adult beverages, entertainment, amazing pools and a hot tub. Our daughter and son in law stayed at the same time we did and they said it reminded them of their honeymoon in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. I am already planning our next trip.

    Hotel Aquarium problem

    Staying here now. The eel in their huge aquarium has been stuck in the same position in a rock all day. Employees don't really seem concerned enough to even look when me and other guests expressed our concern. Would someone from the hotel please check on the eel?
