Hi Mrs. Cato...the overall feel of the hotel itself was good. Theres one thing that could definitely be better and thats food and drink availability...for instance after 10 p.m. there is no more food available except for popcorn at the resorts nightclub, so that kind of bites and the only place you can get any drinks at night is at the upstairs bar. But, I do have to say that most of the staff was great...the beds and pillows are to die for...they are sooo comfortable! The room we had was perfect, it was a deluxe garden view right between the pool and waterpark...we had a very nice terrace with table, chairs and a comfy couch and our own outside exit. Although, we were suppose to receive a suite upgrade if available upon our arrival, but they said there werent any available so they placed us in the deluxe instead, which actually turned out good, because from what I understand the suites were on the upper floors, so I would not have had my beautiful terrace with my own little outside exit..right in the middle of everything! The rest of the wedding party and guests had standard rooms, but those rooms were nice also...although the view from your room really depended on where they placed you. Just a warning though...do not expect to have all your guests in one location, because they wont be. I had people spread out all over the resort. Ohhh...and one more thing to be aware of...I had a couple of guests that had extra charges taken out of their credit cards during the stay...the resort said that it was an error in their part and that they would return the money...but it was definitely an inconvenience. So...I would forewarn everyone that when placing a deposit upon arrival, use cash...if a credit card is used, make sure they check it during their stay, because they will charge without telling you! The beach is okay...its kind of small and the waters very foggy, but has lots of lounge chairs...no drink service at the beach...you would have to go get your own drink at the bar. The pool and waterpark are nice. The kids just absolutely loved the waterpark and theres a swim up bar there also...so its nice...you can have some drinks while the kids play. Now the main pool is very nice and modern...theres no swim up bar, so thats really dissapointing...especially since you figured this is where most of the adults hang at...but oh well. Now lastly, the flowers were the standard bouquet from Grande Garden. I was sooo happy with how they turned out, as I had no idea what to expect beforehand. So, I was super excited to see them! Ok...I think I covered just about everything. If you have any more questions, please dont hesitate to ask!
