My wife and went to this resort with 10 other friends and family members on a group vacation. I haven't been to a large resort in a while and now I remember why.

We had an excellent room with an amazing view of the ocean literally a few steps away however we didn't receive the room key until 4 hours after check in because they couldn't 'find' the room we had reserved 8 months prior. The 4 rooms we reserved (king beds) ended up being scattered around the resort no where near each...

The beach and the water are beautiful, and the resort itself is wonderful and clean. Rooms are comfy, and the family suite was perfect for us as we were traveling with a teenager.

The beach is fabulous but the service is horrendous as is the food in all but the Japanese restaurant. Hardly any of the staff from Reception to wait-staff speak basic English and you are treated as an inconvenience rather than a guest. The resort is also very large. We logged 5+ miles a day just going to the beach, pool...
