Take a walk around the property as there are multiple pools and hot tubs. The landscaping and unique layout will not disappoint.The path along the resort has a labyrinth. A labyrinth is an elaborate structure designed for King Minos of Crete. The labyrinth was constructed to hold the Minotaur killed by Theseus.

I am giving my experience a 4+ stars.
