Loved the pool and beach access. Also the live band in bar by the beach. Friendly early check in that also allowed us access to enjoy the property all day

well staffed and clean nice pools and beach location

Everything was wonderful, but our toilet had flushing problems. We struggled the whole stay with being able to flush our toilet.

Great place for a family and kids looking for a getaway. Definitely rent bikes and bike the paths and also on the beach to get to places.

Customer service was great, grounds were very beautiful and clean. Location awesome.

This resort was BEAUTIFUL and so accommodating to.mine and my family's last minute booking and we couldn't be happier. It is within walking distance to the beach, has a HUGE pool, a smaller pool and a hot tub for enjoyment and if needed, has a kids place, which then the parents can have their nhi own fun....so amazing!! Best hotel choice i have EVER made!

Very good staff. Restaurant providing breakfast, lunch and dinner is very good. Nothing included in the price. The pool could be clean better than that in its surrounding. No lifeguard. Very close to the beach. Nice family hotel.

Clean very comfortable rooms, excellent service, tasty pool and bar food, great landscaping. The downside is the combination of small pool with chairs crowded together, too few of which have any shade. The crowding is especially bad as a result of a large population of kids. This makes the pool area uncomfortable for adults without kids. Including a loud kid's movie shown at the pool in the evening, making eating or sitting outside in the cool of the evening noisy and unpleasant. Similarly, at lunch time on weekends there is heavily amplified live music that by no means pleases everyone. So be warned. This is a child-oriented pool area .

Pros: Location. Awesome location in gated area of the island. Resort sits off the beach a bit too which makes it very quiet. Beach access is easy. Pool is nice as well. Tons of great restaurants right around the resort as well. Rooms are spacious. Bed comfortable. Cons: Arrived at 4pm to check in and room wasn't ready until 430. It's ok, but after a 7 hour drive it would be nice to have a room to go to. Was told to 'go hang out at the pool while we wait', but couldn't get in without a room key? Room 5067. A/C in room didn't work, so two hot semi-sleepless nights. Mold in shower and dust on vents. Also never experienced the "wow" customer service so many reviews talked about. Valet parking fee is outrageous: $15 per time to have them park the car 20 yards from the door + tip for the valet staff! Hotel store closes early, so only 'snack' option was a coke machine...but not on the 5th floor because that one was out of order. Overall: Mediocre for the price. I planned a last minute trip, so there weren't many options to choose from for booking. But for $350+/night...you expect a pretty comfortable stay. Probably wouldn't recommend if you can find something better, but doable if you just need a place to stay.

Very clean very friendly large property on the beach

Liked everything about the place!.. Wasn't anything not to like.. Location, staff, Room had a great view!.. I chose the Deluxe One King Bed, Ocean Horizon View # 5024.. highly recommend!..

We had a great stay! Room was clean, very easy walk to the beach, nice pool. I would definitely go back!

Rooms were very spacious, staff was very friendly, and pool areas were fantastic.
