Best parts: Service, Smiles, Surroundings
The resort is beautiful. Serene. Set on man-made waterways & an unending turquoise ocean and jungle-like in between. But very expensive -- both the pavilions which are secluded and lovely -- and the food, which is disappointing. Though our pavilion was private, spacious and set on a stretch of water that mirrored a bright blue sky, on closer inspection, some flaws (for $2700 per night): AC didn't work), ceiling fan squeaked, bathroom light out, towel bars rusty, stone floor cracked in many places, bed hard as a rock, only one reading chair...a bit picky I suppose, but for the cost, thought it should be in tip-top shape. Other nit-picks: music in the beach restaurant loud and very un-Zen; bicycles a little unsteady (but nice to have), little presentation in the not-so-great food (scrambled eggs served on large plate with no garnish at all -- a bit unappetizing.) Service & smiles were beyond compare, tho, & we had a great time.
