I visited Hedo 10 - 24 December for a little sun and fun and was very happy with the visit. The weather was typical for December, but really didn't affect or deter enjoyment of the trip. I thought the resort was in very good condition and I was very happy with my room. I thought the food variety and quality was very good and the food and bar service was all very good. Winston seems to be doing a great job with the Entertainment crew and I always enjoy seeing him perform on stage. Management was very visible and attentive and appear to be working hard to keep things working properly. They also seemed to me to be very attentive to customer satisfaction and I believe I saw that perspective in the staff too.

All in all, I really enjoyed this visit very much. I've prepared a brief trip report and Denny should have it posted on the website within a few days.

A review of any resort, or anything else for that matter, depends heavily upon the perspective and experience of the observer; my perception of this trip was genuinely very positive.

Rats - looks like we missed you by a day Lyle! We were there 12/5-10. I'd agree with all of Lyle's comments... though I'm a bit les positive on the food. I thought the hot dishes were a bit less varied than previous years. Seemed that the breakfast dishes had very little variation day to day, and there were fewer interesting, creative dinner dishes like Anthony's pork or fish w/ caper-lemon sauce of past years. And a few dishes were a bit less stellar than in the past (ie: the short ribs were pretty dang chewy, and the fillet wasn't quite as good).

No complaints overall - these are just minor observations, comparing the current (very good) food vs. some really excellent times in the past few years. On the plus side, the updated Pastafari menus are great, and the sushi at Harry-san was excellent. smile

Has the resort been putting it there in past years or is this business something new? In my many NYE visits, I don't recall seeing it before -- but if it has been there, then I somehow managed to completely miss it altogether.

I didn’t notice it and haven’t in the past either.

I don't know about and eggnog dispenser at the bar, but I did notice that the ice tea dispenser in the nook with the specialty coffee's is gone.

Respect.

I didn't try it myself, so I don't know whether or not it was "spiked". As I said, the dispenser was only there my first couple of days (definitely at breakfast, I think at lunch, too) before it disappeared -- which I guess was the resort's way of saying the Christmas season was over and they were focusing on NYE.
