We had a great time. The most remarkable aspect of the trip was that EVERYONE was SO nice! That includes staff, residents, fellow guests, etc. We honestly did not have one negative experience. So unless otherwise noted, all my experiences were at least average and none negative. I wouldn't tell anyone not to go to any of the places we went.

I have some pictures primarily of the resort here however they are mostly of the resort:


Thanks again!
