Loved the beautiful architecture and lavish marble, wood and granite, used on the buildings. Landscaping incredible and well kept. Food delicious. Grandkids did complimentary archery and loved it. Husband and son in law loved their golf game, and caddy. We all loved the choices of pools, and pool food/drink service, poolside! Well hidden gem!
