Room was very far away from the beach the staff moved us the second day but still not exactly what we were expecting.
The Staff was fantastic, so genuinely friendly and really made sure you were having a great time. Staff, Black Coffee all went above and beyond.
Service and amenities were top notch
Food was a little disappointing- none of the meals we had were particularly noteworthy and some we didn't like altogether (Chez Isabelle was not our favorite).
The resort itself was beautiful
The food was absolutely terrible, would not recommend on that alone
Our room was very dirty and we asked multiple times (4) for someone to clean the jetted tub. I ended up cleaning it myself. The room stunk and was very humid. They did bring a dehumidifier in but we had to keep dumping the water multiple times a day.
