Fodor's Review

Designed like a small town, with restaurants, shops, and nightlife concentrated near a central public square, this huge resort still has many positive attributes considering its moderate price range. The handsome lobby was beautified in late 2013 and dazzles with its new bar, but unfortunately there are not enough bar stools. The lounge for the VIP Club makes a striking impression; aggressive time-share sellers can aggravate guests, however. Upgrading to Privilege Junior

Suites and amenities are decidedly worth the extra cost. Food-wise, the variety at the main buffet is still satisfying and a la carte favorites are the steakhouse, French and seafood restaurants. All told, the resort is not brilliant, but fun-loving and easy-pleasing guests enjoy their holiday.
