What the reviews say

Though there are so many different reviews and thus viewpoints, there isn’t really a constant flow of opinions. By this we mean that the resort will get tons a great reviews, and then a few negative ones, and then lots of positive ones again. This can be a little concerning as the resort doesn’t seem to have a very consent operating technique, but on the other hand, the bad reviews could be guests who are extra picky.

Reports are that the rooms are even larger than people expected and that they are filled with ultra-luxury amenities that go beyond a typical 5-star hotel. Needless to say, for this price you are expecting a lot, but it appears that the resort is delivering well.
