Not worth the price
This is a fancy, top dollar resort, but they really "nickel-and-dime" you for everything. The Resort fee on top off $700/night seems a little much, no food included, but tips expected everywhere (it's a resort). However, there's no beach to speak of, the pool is full of incontinent kids in diapers. You can rent snorkel gear to poke around in the ocean, but it's extremely rough surf- so it's not like what you see in Maui or Oahu. There's a little shuttle to take you to on property shops, but don't buy anything to cook yourself, because there are no BBQs as advertised. I asked if they could accommodate for a vegan meal at any of the restaurants, they offered a microwave for the room. I ate PBJ all week. The grounds are beautiful, they have carved a tropical paradise into a barren Martian landscape. Kudos for that. Wonderful people and service, but I can think of a million places I'd rather go.

Stolen watch
Beautiful property, however my diamond Michele watch was stolen. It was in my beach bag near the hot tub where we were. We reported it and security took my information but it was never returned. I don’t think I would have posted this however I ran into another woman in their jewelry store who had hers stolen as well. I am regretful I ever took the watch off and have learned a hard lesson as it was very sentimental. I don’t recommend bringing any valuable jewelry to this high end hotel if you plan on taking it off.
