Review summary

We celebrated our honeymoon. One night at dinner a honeymoon cake in the shape of a heart of brought to us. We received gift card to the spa and photo shop. My husband is a Karaoke Host here at home so we went every night to karaoke. Anntianette was amazing! She also hosted a country Christmas trivia and was super fun! The food was great. The shops where awesome. I don't like the casino because of the smoke! Other than that is was great!
