      By far one of the best resorts we have ever stayed at. Pictures do not do it enough justice. This resort is far more beautiful in person. There was so much we wanted to do and decided to wait last minute (Worst Idea, recommend to plan ahead) Luckily Concierge Cynthia helped us plan out our itinerary and we ended up being able to do the majority of activities we wanted. Thank you to the entire wonderful staff for making our stay truly magical

      I am disappointed to write this review. Our issues began upon check-in when the staff member actually tried to down grade our room. I explained that I paid for resort view and they insisted garden view was an upgrade from resort view. This is not the case, however, as a resort view is more expensive than a garden view. I allowed the person at reception to talk me into the change but was not happy with the room and to their credit they immediately moved us to a resort view. While this issue was ameliorated it did unfortunately set a deceptive tone to the start of our vacation. Another strange issue that came up was while the room was booked with breakfast included I was being charged upwards of 80$ for each breakfast. Despite visiting reception about this matter I continued to be charged. The charges were eventually reversed (Thank you, Grace!) but again, a strange tone was set regarding money as I had tipped the very attentive and friendly breakfast staff but then later the charges were reversed. Another odd interaction was when I tried to get sunblock from the pool deck. Prior Ritz Carlton resorts supplied sunblock. This Ritz had the after sun lotion, but I was told the actual sun lotion was on “back order” and therefore not available. Again, I would not expect excellent “above and beyond” service from another hotel, but I resent hitting so many road blocks when I am paying almost $800 a night for a resort. If your sun block is on back order - g
