Great life long friends reunion

This hotel was the perfect location for our reunion. We all had a great time and enjoyed having our morning coffee with the spectacular view from the balcony and enjoyed the sunsets. We even saw dolphins!! The kids and adults LOVED the pool. The restaurant next door had a great environment and we all LOVED playing beach volleyball at night.
