We have stayed at both and while I would certainly go back to the Poly, FQ has much more of a resort feel to it. The grounds are fantastic.

Actually I'd love to see a little bit of commentary on these sort of photos - time of day, camera, lens, aperture, any HDR or colour enhancements, etc.

When we visited this resort in Feb to see if we liked it, they were working on the area by the main building. Anyone have any pics of what they did there? I am assuming they are done since they have moved on to POR now.

The main visible difference is the large round planter/borders around the trees. Before, they had quaint ironwork grills directly around the bases of the trees, very reminiscent of those you might find in a big city street. Also they re-laid all of the paving.
