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.

Understaffed, for a 5 star hotel I was very disappointed. We hung by the pool most of the time, which was nice but there was no service. The poolside restaurant had a horrible menu and there was no service. I asked a staff member who was walking by the pool who I thought was taking orders if I could order something since she had a tray and she told me she was too busy to take my order. I had several orders charged to my room that I had to argue with the front desk to remove. The room was very nice, smaller than I expected. Our phone didn't work so we had to call the hotel from my cell to order room service. Only one shuttle driver so don't plan on getting around by that. The hotel was beautiful but unfortunately it missed the mark and we won't be going back.

The hotel is beautiful and the concierge was very helpful. I enjoyed the separate pool and hot tub for adults only.

Nice place, everything was great, love the room service and the Spa
