We stayed there in Jan and really enjoyed it. The music in the evening from the lobby bar is very loud and late. I like music but go fishing very early in the morning. My advice would be to get a room as far up and away from the lobby as possible. They have elevators so who cares about a little distance? I also found that tipping the waiter $5.US when I ordered my first drink really helped with the service. The service is good anyway, but I couldn't finish a drink without him or her offering another one. Drinks are a little on the weak side so you're safe to have a few. You can order as strong as you like, however. Like Judy says, if we don't get out and spend some money, this paradise can't last. Tip your servers fairly, like you would at home, and try some local meals too.
