They definitely live up to their name! The Staff was exceptional in all areas . Double Double, Gladys, Martin ,Martha, Pamela, Sexy Alex and the list goes on! Housekeeping and Maintenance were both excellent never wanting or waiting for anything. The Resort itself gives you enough to do ,we were entertained for 9 days and could have stayed longer!
