Comin and staff went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect

The staff were friendly, curtious, and helpful. I really enjoyed everything about my stay there.

If you expect 5 star accommodation this resort is not the place. The room was extremely clean and there was a beautiful view. However, the food was mediocre and service at the restaurant was even worse. Breakfast was truly sad and the server took forever to serve us both days that we went. We waited 25 minutes for a waffle . Restaurant was not that busy as we arrived very early in the morning. Although my animal is a service animal, I was still required to pay which I have never done before. Not a huge deal but the resort advertises, "Upon arrival at the resort, we will set your furry friend up with a gift bag outfitted with waste bags and dental stick treats at no additional charge to ensure Fido has everything he needs for a chic stay!" We received none of that. Ice machine was broken on our floor. We asked for a couple extra hours beyond our check out time and even though they had other rooms available with nobody checking in and we were willing to pay the $150 fee that they charge to stay until 5pm (and remember we only asked to stay a couple hours past check out), they would not move us to a vacant room. We paid $1,000 for ONE night for this room. Overall we had a 3 star experience. We will not be coming back to this resort.

The hotel is very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful!

Everything was great! Nothing bad to say. Wonderful place to stay.

The resort was lovely and the staff amazing. I held one star because the bed and pillows were AWFUL! They also only service room one every 2 days- being on the beach sand on the floors was an issue even though we tried to shake off as much as possible. Also, have not yet received a copy of our receipt that they like to send via email after many requests. Overall, relaxing trip. Lots of shops restaurants within walking distance. Very nice beach (crowded).

It had a beautiful view and it was close to everything we wanted to go do.

Place is very well managed from top to bottom courteous informed staff super clean and attentive with a smile definitely my new happy place

I absolutely love this hotel which is why we are repeat customers. You can’t beat the view & staff from beginning to end are above and beyond accommodating. Especially our favorite server Emily at the pool.

What an amazing hotel! All rooms have spectacular views. Staff is extremely nice and accommodating. We experienced an amazing sunset dining at the Sandbar.

We absolutely loved our stay here. Staff was very courteous and caring . Service was prompt and the rooms were beautiful. Will definitely be back!

The beach access is a great plus with this hotel and free parking.

Everything was beautiful and clean. Had an amazing time and will be booking again, the resort is close to so much! It’s a great location!

Everything was amazing

The hotel room was very dirty. Stains of dirt are everywhere on the curtains, walls, furniture doors, mirrors. When asked to clean, they said that they didn’t clean the room because of the COVID. After repeated requests to come to clean, came pulled up a bed and vacuumed. There is no service at the hotel. For 4 days, I have never changed towels or added hygiene products. Desire to return
