As soon as we drove up and got down from Piper, we were immediately taken cared of by a bellboy and valet who instantly knew who we were (talk about service!) and helped us with our stuff. Then we were directed to one of the three Reception Desks where we registered and surrendered the voucher we won. I really liked that it wasn’t a big counter where guests had to stand around. Each desk had 2 chairs for the guests to sit down and relax a bit while the Reception Officer did the necessary paperwork. A few minutes later, we were accompanied by a bellboy who showed us where the restaurants and pools were before leading us to our room.
As soon as we entered our suite, Caila immediately trumped over to the bedroom and, seeing that there was a TV there (in addition to the one in the Living Area), placed herself comfortably on the bed and asked us to switch the television on.

We had planned to go to the beach area the following morning, but because we had a hard time waking our daughter up before the sun’s rays became strong, we had to forego that idea. It wasn’t until around 9am that Caila finally woke up to our badgering, and allowed us to get her ready for breakfast.
We enjoyed the buffet breakfast at the hotel’s Olea restaurant which offered all sorts of breakfast goodies: pancakes and waffles, a variety of breads and toasts, pastries, sausages, bacon, beans, cereals, cold cuts, fresh fruits, dried fruits, fresh juice, coffee, hot chocolate, and so much more. There were even 2 separate egg stations: one for omelets and one where you could ask to have your eggs cooked any way you wanted. Again, we thoroughly enjoyed everything we ate.
Finally, we headed to the Family Pool where we swam and floated around, and Caila allowed us to release her tight grips on us so she could float and splash about on her own.
Finally, it was time for us to go; so after packing all our stuff and making sure we didn’t leave anything behind, we headed to the Reception. A bellboy took our parking ticket and luggage while we signed the check-out papers and settled the bill, and by the time we exited the hotel doors, Piper was cooled, ready and waiting for us. It was a really fantastic way to celebrate our anniversary!
