Service in all areas is top notch. Always smiling, helpful. Our suite was huge, the bathroom bigger than mine at home. Loved the power washing shower heads! very comfy bed. Food in every dining area was very good. Lunch by the pool was the least tasty, tended to be a little heavy on the salt. We ate in all the specialty rest. they were all very good. Pate, souffles, steak, quesadillas, all great. We found that you could also eat in Prime some days for lunch. It has a different lunch menu and it was great. – lander6991
