We had a great and relaxing time! Everything looked clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly. The sad part was that because it was during the coronavírus pandemic, not everything was available to guests. But the location is awesome and we were able to enjoy the beautiful beach.

The pool was outstanding. It actually has cold water pumping into the pool which I had never seen before. In Florida, this a definite perk. The pool is heated in the Winter. Pool and service was great too. They have complimentary paddle boards and bikes which is another perk. We rented a golf cart ...
