Let’s start from the beginning, the moment you call you’re greeted with warmth. Especially if it’s Larese who takes your call. He’s very informative and knows how to make your trip memorable whether you’re on your own, significant other, or family. They have a spa, lots of aquatic activities, not to mention a good looking gym, and leisure past times. You wanna be on a bike and take the scenic route? Go for it. You want to take a walk? They got the perfect route. You want some drinks? They got you. Food? Too easy. Views? You haven’t seen nothing yet. Jet ski? Hold my drink. You want excitement or relaxation they got it all and Larese definitely helped figure that out for us. Read less
