8/10 Very good

Excellent!
Quick check in and we were pleasantly surprised at an upgrade! Booked an ocean view room which we got but also got the suite! Large room with an amazing view. Room 2145. Food was excellent and can’t say anything bad about it. Even the buffet was good as they can be hit or miss. This was a hit. Plenty of seating during the day with chairs for everyone no matter what time you came to the pool. Would stay here again loved every minute!
