We enjoyed a high-end dinner and a plentiful breakfast buffet. The wait staff was friendly, professional and attentive. The bartender made sure we had drinks to take back to our room.

We were disappointed. The menu looked great. But that is where great stopped. We went to dinner early since we didn't have lunch that day. We were the only ones in the diningroom until another couple came in - they sat them right beside us....More
