I will reiterate DO NOT TIP, Just4Fun is wrong and you can get an employee fired for tipping them. Do not put them in that situation.
Also, not sure what Just4Fun is talking about, but there are no "Mountain View Rooms". There are only ocean view or beach front rooms. So it makes me wonder if Just4Fun is talking about another resort.
Also, there are no buffet dinners except for the Gala and Beach Party. We did not have any problems booking anything and did not do it immediately when we arrived. So take your time and figure out what you want to do before rushing into anything.
As far as dressing, yes, men are required to wear long pants and collared shirts at the reservation restaurant, but ladies are fine in sun dresses and sandals. You don't need to bring 'strappy high heels' if you don't want to. Sun dresses with sandals (even nice flip flops) are perfectly fine.
Once you have been through customs and immigration you will go to the Couples Lounge where they will show you to your transportation. Do have singles ready as you will need to tip the baggage handler who takes your bags to the shuttle. $1 per bag is customary. You will also want to tip the shuttle driver. We tip $10 per couple. Once at the resort, put your money away. No need to tip anyone except for spa personnel.
We had a lovely time and never experienced any public display of affection even at night from fellow guests. Couples management has requested that those type of things be kept to the rooms. So no need to be cautious of where you go at night. Couples really is a classy resort and that type of activity does not exist.
Have a fabulous time and take one afternoon to roam the entire property. Grab a bike and ride around the lake, explore the grounds and take a dip in all the pools, a soak in all the hot tubs, and get a drink from each of the bars.
