The food was delicious, the staff was very friendly, and the rooms were super clean. We visited during hurricane sally and left a night before we were supposed to. The hotel was not very accommodating when we were forced to stay an extra several days. Also wished the Coffee Café would have been one later then 3pm.

The resort itself was very nice but everything was extremely expensive and they charge a nightly resort fee and parking fee even if you want to self park. Overall it was nice but way too expensive for what it is.

Beautiful property, nice rooms, and wonderful friendly service! We had dinner and breakfast at the Primrose restaurant which was delicious and the staff was excellent!

The Henderson was amazing. Staff and service was excellent. Food was delicious. Pool was beautiful. What else do you need to hear. Go!

Good property. Keep in mind it isn’t actually on the beach, which I don’t think I realized until checking in! Overall service was great and food was good. Views are beautiful.

The view was very good, the pools were beautiful, and the food was amazing

Access to beach was convenient and easy. Loved the lazy river and the pools.

Beautiful property, Staff was friendly and helpful. Location was off the main road so the resort was quiet. Private beach was amazing.

Amazing spa and hotel, short walk to the beach. Spa had many additional amenities that are not listed and are free!

This hotel has only been open for a few months... it is a beautiful facility... staff was very friendly... only dissapointment was pool side food.. they need to work on that... great location and their free shuttle service was really spot on.

The hotel was very nice. I was disappointed that you were not allowed to bring your own beverages to the beach.
