    Comfortable beds and rooms in general. Great pool, delicious breakfast and free parking. Wifi was not free but if you sign up to be Marriott member, you can use it for free. Flamingoes are a bonus.

    The private pool and the state-of-the-art spa are two things that you must not miss in this hotel. There's also a fitness centre for those who need a workout. http://j.mp/IlAFu8

    The resort is expansive and very busy, I recommend a room overlooking the greens. Enjoy a ride on the hotel's indoor gondola for a short tour and transport to nearby resort restaurants

    Skip the overpriced Lake View breakfast and get the yummy, fruit packed yogurt and granola parfait at (gulp) Starbucks. It's actually really good, add a coffee you'll save about $10.

    Check your room bill when you leave - even after speaking with multiple people before and during my stay, the bill was completely wrong! Terrible at handling multi-room reservations. Pretty though...

    Nice place, but do not count on Internet or cell service. It is worse here than any place I have ever been to. Sometimes there is a signal and then it suddenly drops off. It is very bad. Unusable.

    If you purchase wifi, know that it does NOT work in most areas -- apparently only the hotel room. Useless if you're there for a conference.
