    Please warm up the pool

    Everything was absolutely amazing!!!! The only negatives i have is that the main pool could've been a little warmer and when i ate at the lounge, i wanted to sit closest to the desert side but was told they were reserved even though upon check in i was told that it was first come first serve : (

    Beautiful resort, excellent service!

    Beautiful resort, excellent service! Beautiful rooms! There was a Christmas fair on while there, singing was loud and a lot of people, we where looking for quiet and serene, but we still had a great time! We had dinner one night at the Indian restaurant, Masala, the most delicious Indian food I’ve ever eaten! Beautiful setting!

    Not worth the money at all. Disappointing.

    Old. Ran down. Service is simply not good enough. Crowded. Expensive for what you get. Truly. It worth it.
